      • The Liver Building
      • The Bar Lightship
      • Cunard Lines
      • Stephenson's Rocket
      • The Overhead Railway
      • The Docker's Clock

Thanks for the intro to Grant Searl's work Les... I like how you kept the ceiling with lights in the photo. ... I saw the words on his site under the art piece... did you add them here or was it also part of this work in the underground?
Les Auld: The words are part of the artwork Jaquelyn, it all seems to fit together. Thanks for the comemnt.
This is a real interesting one Les. I enjoyed reading about this.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comemnt Frances, appreciate it.
