Tom Dick and Nevil

Tom,Dick and Nevil
Yours truly with Tom Dick and Nevil.

There is quite an interesting story attached to this sculpture.It stands in
Perch Rock in New Brighton here on the Wirral.In it's heyday,New Brighton
was a bustling sea-side resort, popular with local people and visitors, who
flocked there in their hundreds,particularly on Bank holidays.I remember my
Mum and Dad taking me there when I was a little girl and the beach would be
absolutely packed. The sculpture was made in 1993 and was designed to
complement the Victorian feel of the resort.It was copied from an original
photo of three Victorian gentlemen who were regular visitors to New Brighton
and who were known as Tom Dick and Harry.They were later renamed Tom,
Dick and Nevil in honour of three of the consultants involved in a
regeneration programe for the area. Some of you will have seen the first
picture in Paintbox Pictures but this is the original.

The Manchester Ship Canal

The Liverpool Waterfront
Bridge over the canal
Helsby Hill.When we are coming home from
our daughter's in Scotland,we pass Helsby Hill.
To me,it is always a pleasure to see, as I know we
are nearly home.

Flying the flag

I didn't post last week as we were going away and I knew
I wouldn't have time to post comments on people's blogs.
Also, I haven't done much with my camera lately so I have
searched through the photos I have and I came across these
which I took a couple of years ago while on a trip up the
Manchester Ship Canal.It is a very interesting trip,which
takes you through some lovely countryside but it is also
an area rich in industrial history.

It's those geese again!

I suppose I'm cheating in a way,putting these pics on here as I have
already put them on my other blog My Life. A few people have seen
them on there but not as many as I would have liked,cos I think they
are pretty good. Ok trumpet blowing time over! I couldn't resist taking
the last pic. This guy was heading back the way they had come.I wondered
what he was saying.Was it, "Mum, where are you?" or was it "Come on,
you lot, get a flipping move on!"
