Cragg's Raleigh


A modern sculpture by Liverpool sculptor Tony Cragg. To emphasis the solidity and strength of Jesse Hartley's fine dock system he designed it to include granite blocks, from which many of the dock walls are made, cast iron bollards, of which there are many around the docks, and cast horns to symbolise a fanfare of greeting or farewell to travellers in Liverpool. It was cast in a Bootle foundary in 1986 and installed at the Albert Dock in Liverpool.
