Historical Monuments Old and New

Hi there ...

This week Robyn has chosen the prompt word at 


Historical Monuments

Liverpool is full of Historical Monuments and it seems every week more are added to the landscape. The thing is you really don't take much notice when you have passed them constantly for years ...

This is a relatively new one ... standing high up at the renovated dockside it is one of a tribute to the many dockers who lived and worked at the busy and prosperous port of Liverpool


This is another one


You can see that there is still building work in progress ... what was once a run down dockside has been transformed ... Luxury apartments, Marinas, Water sport areas and Restaurants are just some of the new features

I worked in the city for a long time and regularly went into the city to shop and to socialise ... We had so many night clubs that monuments were just regarded as a meeting place before we went off to enjoy the nightlife ...
These days I hardly ever go into the city and this week I haven't been well enough to go out and about taking photos so I'll share just a small few of our Historical Monuments ... photos NOT taken by me but a little bit of my city... You can click the Source links to find out more about them

Edward V11 ... The famous Liver Buildings in the background


The Gladstone monument


The MacKenzie Monument


The QueenVictoria Monument


The Lord Nelson Monument


They you are ... just of few of the scores in and around my city

I hope you'll link up your photos of
Historical Monuments this week at


Hop over to the blog to see what the rest of the team have come up with

Enjoy your day

Sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly Ros. :-( Hope those ickies leave you alone soon. Wow, that's a LOT of monuments in one area, but then again you are talking about England---history abounds. Take care of yourself. Hugs!

Fun to see monuments in your city, Ros! Hope you're feeling better.

Thank you so much for these, Ros. The newer ones, of course, I had not seen. Many men lost their lives in the building of Liverpool and working on the docks. I will never forget my one and only ride on the overhead railway, built for the dockers to get to their place of work.
This post brought back so many memories for me.
