D IS FOR :
Himself hails from the city of Liverpool and towards the end of last year took a guided tour of the city which he greatly enjoyed. He got to see some buildings to which the public are not often admitted and found out some fascinating facts about his birthplace. This is the view from the former Martins Bank Building, which looks out directly onto Liverpool Town Hall. The statue on the dome of the roof is a ten feet high statue of Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom. The statue was designed by Felix Rossi, who was sculptor to King George IV. In the same street; Dale Street there are other fine old buildings as well as examples of modern architecture. Do click on the photo for a better view. These weekly tours are led by local historian Frank Carlyle and if you ever find yourself in Liverpool on a Tuesday, it is an experience not to be missed. Must do it myself one of these days. Thanks to himself for the photo that illustrates this post.
Do not dally but get yourself down to ABC Wednesday, kindly hosted by Denise Nesbitt, for some delightful posts on the letter D.
