Lovely Liverpool!

There was only one subject for this week’s Alphabe-Thursday letter ‘L’! It is the wonderful city of Liverpool. I will share some photos to hopefully give you a flavour!

It has a long maritime history becoming a major port by the 18th century. Sadly its links to the Atlantic Slave trade has coloured some views about this area of Liverpool’s past. 

It is home to a diversity of cultures & has  the oldest Chinese community in Europe.

Many people will have heard about Liverpool through the Beatles, probably the most famous group in the 60’s. These cultural icons helped the city to become a major tourist attraction over the years. In 2008 it became European City of Culture & it’s biennial arts festival that year had some amazing exhibits.

This wonderous contraption moved very slowly with each of its pieces moving back & forward. It reminded me of a wood louse!

One of my favourite places is the Roman Catholic Cathedral. We are not of that faith but it is a wonderous building. It is circular & lets in light whatever the weather. This picture was taken the day before the funeral of Pope in the mid afternoon on a fairly dull day.

So…I hope you have enjoyed a whirlwind tour of a great city. For my American visitors, definitely put it on your bucket lists!

There will be lots of ‘L’ or a post (get it?) over at Jenny Matlock’s fab blog! Go see!
