Liver Buildings from my archive , unless i'm mistaken there is a public snack bar inside

Met up with an old schoolpal whom i found thru friendsreunited  and we went thru the mersey tunnel to west kirkby  and thurstason to some old haunts.There  are two mersey tunnels  for cars , the old one was opened by the king in about 1933.

 The most pleasant way of crossing the mersey is by the ferry from pier head , i'm not sure what is to be seen on the other side but there is a decent walk along the promenade  and this offers an excellent view of liverpools' landmarks  ie : liver buildings , cathedrals ,sea front .


The Liver buildings  are government buildings so named  after the birds that are perched on top of them .The liver bird , it seems , does not exactly correspond or resemble , any known species of bird , but it is likley they are  young cormorants , a sea bird .

Happy Elephant , nothing whatsoever to do with the topic ,Liverpudlians have a crazy sense of humour

By devious and exhausting methods i managed to get hold of 3 tickets for the Liverpool v Middlesborough football match , anyone wanting details  pls message me , i dont want to go thru it all again  in this blog.I took my bro in law and nephew  and we saw 5 goals , 4 disallowed goals , a hatrick  and a sending-off.The mentality of football supporters (and i am one myself) however , sometimes depresses me about the state of human beings  ;-) .I am not particularly clever  but find i have to close my intellect off  at times , possibly i am just getting cynical , if so i am lucky that my team won (or else i would have been more cynical about things ). It was a 3-2 scoreline to Liverpool .


That evening my other team was playing in France  and England rugby team  managed a victory , it was on tv , i love my sport (when we win)


I  also  love the Beatles music but know little about the Beatles experience tour , i would imagine there  are loads of other blogs in TB  that  cover that subject .


 sunday , i visit the cathedrals , anfield(again)  and goodison park .
