Hey what's happening here,, so funny haha

Z all I could find

Zoo
Walton has a history of animal attractions. In 1884 the Liverpool Inner City Zoological Park & Gardens opened on what is now the Cavendish Retail Park. Its star attraction was "Pongo", a chimpanzee who lived in the Monkey House. The Zoo itself was known for its large bronze Liver Birds which sat atop of the entrance gates, and its splendid beauty. The gardens closed in the early 1900s and the only surviving remains is the Ticket Booth, which is now a cafe beside The Plough public house. The Rice Lane City Farm is also housed in Walton, this is situated at the end of Rawcliffe Road. wiki

Huskisson Tomb, St James Park



When the Railroad neared completion in the summer of 1830, Huskisson was ill.   in July of that year surgery made it impossible for him to fight the general election, although he was successfully returned in his absence.   After the operation his recovery was slow, but he was determined to be present at the opening of the railway on the 15th September.   During the ceremony,  Huskisson, and some friends left their carriage during a halt, a warning was given that Stevenson's Rocket was approaching.   Still feeble from illness Huskisson, attempting to board the carriage, fell across the line and was run over.   At nine o'clock that night he died, in great agony, at Eccles Vicarage.

Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King

Architects throughout the world were invited in 1960 to design a Cathedral for Liverpool which would relate to the existing Crypt, be capable of construction within five years, cost at the current prices no more than £1,000,000 for its shell, and most important of all, express the new spirit of the liturgy then being radically reformulated by the Second Vatican Council. Of 300 entries from all over the world, Sir Frederick Gibberd's (1908-1984) design was chosen, and building began in October 1962.   A Pathé newsreel showed stages of the building process.  Less than five years later, on the Feast of Pentecost, 14 May 1967, the completed Cathedral was consecrated.   The Papal Legate at the consecration, most appropriately, was His Eminence John Carmel Cardinal Heenan, Archbishop of Westminster, who had been succeeded as Archbishop of Liverpool three years earlier by George Andrew Beck.   The long waiting was suddenly over.

....wouldn't that look great,with a brass band playing in it! I only found out fairly recently,that there's a similar one in Newsham park,but I don't know if it's ever used?

Smashing pic, apparently when this one was recently restored it was decided to paint it in the colours that it had when first erected..I think it look great.
The last time I saw the one in Newsham park was about a year or so ago and it was looking very sad.
