X-ray Ted Golf Bug

From February 14th to the 20th March Liverpool celebrates many of the ideas and the great stories that are part of the city's rich history though a public art event called Liverpool Discovers.

 

This artwork, by Joe Rush, combines  two of the many medical discoveries of international significance carried out  in Liverpool.In 1896, Nobel Prize-winning Charles Barkla was the first to use x-ray photography to reveal a bullet in a young boy’s wrist.

 

Another  breakthrough event was made in 1902 at Liverpool’s School of Tropical  Medicine (the world’s first such school) by Nobel Prize winner Ronald Ross, who discovered that malaria is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. Both of  these ground-breaking discoveries changed the methods of medical diagnosis  forever.

For a moment I thought golf was designed in Liverpool smile That is why it would be X-rayted.

A great picture of a great art work. It does need a little explanation and the it all makes sense.
Les Auld: Only if Liverpool was in Scotland Louis, thanks for the comment.

This is a brilliant piece of public art Les
Les Auld: In't it just Chris, thanks for the comment.
This is quite something Les. Very clever to combine the two like this
Les Auld: Takes some imagination Bill, thanks for the comment.
Interesting info, the art work is most unusual and cleverly done

Superb Les, I hope my Liverpool series shows how much I enjoyed my brief visit to the centre.
Les Auld: Thansk you Chad. unfortunately the last couple of weeks have been very busy so I missed seeing many of the images posted during that time.However I have had a look back and your series does show an interesting side to the city, and perhaps the memories it evokes. I know just how you feel (I Think or is that too presumptuous of me) hopefully these memories will never fade.
Novel idea to bring them together like this.
Les Auld: It does require imagination Brian, thanks for the comment.
