The exact phrase was:

"...be removed to a more public situation in London Road, the commanding entrance to the town."

Basically, to show off to the tourists  Laughing

..which makes sense! It's just that more than a few monuments in Liverpool,seemed to have been moved,for one reason,or another,or have disappeared altogether!
                                     I've just had a look at Great George's square,as it is now,and I think the statue would look fine there!What do you think?

I'm surprised it has never been vandalised,in any way,as far as I know, considering it's present position! Must say something about making things difficult to climb,and even the lettering is intact,but for one or two ,which have probably just fallen off?! Smile

[quote="These shots are from a UK wide collection, dating from the 1860s, which is being split up on ebay. 5 sold for nearly 50. These are the Liverpool ones which I cunningly saved for us all Smile "]

As it was me that bought the photographs don't feel too bad if I don't join in with the congratulations.

Any hoo I've posted more detailed scans on Flikr now I have the originals.

I'm booked to give another talk on the Sailors' Home at the Museum of Liverpool (date to be confirmed) so please feel free to come along.

Great pic's DKL,but is the George 3rd monument in Great George's square,as it doesn't look like London rd,though it's obviously changed,over time?


have to agree the Georgian terraces at the back look like the ones from Great Georges Square (still standing today & very well they look too).

sorry not sure how to add a picture but this link should take you to a pic of the terraces as they are now.

strange thing is, has that statue moved in London rd in the last 10/20 years?? as i can't even remember seeing it in London Road?? ever?? also if it was moved to welcome visitors to the city (what a poor excuse for moving it from where it was meant to stand) then its facing the wrong way.
