.... in a Yellow Submarine
A Yellow Submarine

(Paul McCartney)

Another refugee from the 1984 International Garden Festival, the Yellow Submarine is a 51 foot long metal sculpture built by apprentices from the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead. Cammell Llairds built many submarines over the years but none like this, and it was probably the last one as well before they closed the yard. It has moved about over the years, seen here in front of the Albert Dock, it was moved to John Lennon Airport when the building of the Liverpool One shopping centre started.

I like the old postcard look. Hard to believe its almost 25 years since the Garden Festival.
Les Auld: I drive past the site at least once a month and wonder when something constructive with it. 25 years is a long time for it to lay dormant. Thanks for the comment Ian.

Good presentation again Les, I like the way you are processing these older items for us to look at.
Les Auld: Had to do something with it Brian, the original is quite poor quality, thanks for the comment.
I remember seeing the film back in the 60's. Good picture Les
Les Auld: Never did see it Bill, thanks for the comment.
This is a bizarre & brilliant photograph Les: I don't know what you've done to it but it looks almost 19th century!
Les Auld: A touch of the Nautilus perhaps, thanks for the comment Chris.

How very cool...and very strange smile I like your treatment of it Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Dave, we do seem to have a few strange pieces of public art around here.
