A Chance Meeting
Local sculptor Tom Murphy was commissioned by Merseytravel to produce a piece of public art to be placed in Liverpool's Lime Street station.
He decided to depict a chance meeting of two Liverpool icons~Comedian Ken Dodd,and Labour M.P. Bessie Braddock;They often met at Liverpool's Lime Street Station,and would travel to London,all the while arguing about politics:They were divided on the politics,but great friends otherwise.
Ken is seen carrying his iconic laughter tool the infamous "Tickling Stick" ( looks a bit like a featehr duster to me) and Bessie is carrying an egg! Apparently she was responsible for the inttroduction of the Lion Mark on eggs in the UK somewhere around 1957.
Given it was a busy afternoon in the station it was impossible to get a picture of the complete installation without extraneous travellors getting in the way so I had to settle for a couple of close-ups. I probably will need to go back when during a quiet period to get the picture s I want.
Once were Taxis....
Looking up a bit...
