Bluecoat Chambers


The Bluecoat school in Liverpool was opened in 1717 as a school to teach poor children to read, write and cast accounts. The building, in the Queen Anne style, is only a few yards from the city centre and now provides a centre for the arts. It has just undergone a multi-million pound  facelift and not long after the re-opening in 2008 part of it was damaged by fire.

And there is a superlambanana in the grounds as well.

This reminds me of those cities where several merchants will buy the basic form of a sculpture like this and have it painted according to their own tastes/wishes. Then you have the fun of traipsing all around to find what each one looks like! It's delightful, especially against the older architecture.
Les Auld: They certainly are fun Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
I love this photograph. The cat is amazing, especially against the backdrop of this fine old building!
Les Auld: Modern sculpture nad old building, a contrast that seems to work here, thanks for the comment.
Looks like canal boat art. My favourite superlambanana so far!
Les Auld: I think this one was designed by some local children, thanks for the comment Bill.
Best of the bunch in these cat things Les, my wife likes the look of them as well. Nice old courtyard in the background as well.
Les Auld: The Bluecoats is a grand old building, glad you both like the superlambananas, they are proving to be very popular.
