Liverpool Collage

If you've been reading this blog for some time now, you'll know I love my home city of Liverpool and feel great warmth and pride towards it.  I can trace the Liverpool residents from my family tree back to the seventeenth century and if the records existed, probably a lot earlier than that, so Liverpool is very much in my genes.

So I decided to make a collage to show my love of Liverpool and especially its architecture.

The collage features the three iconic waterfront buildings known collectively as the Three Graces.

They are, from left to right, the Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building.

Can you see the little Liver Bird on top of the Liver Building?

This is what the actual bird looks like close up.  There are two of them and they are eighteen feet tall!

And here's a photo I took last year of three buildings.

I really enjoyed making this collage.  What's not to like about spending an afternoon cutting and pasting for real rather than on the laptop!

The pictures of the buildings that I used in my collage are taken from this wonderful book.

It is full of the author's fabulous drawings of the Liverpool architecture.  Here's Bluecoat Chambers.

And here is my photo of the building.

Here's the Albert Dock with the Anglican Cathedral (we have two cathedrals in Liverpool) in the background.

And my photo of a similar view.

We have so many lovely buildings here in Liverpool - we are so spoilt!


  1. Such a beautiful collage! Liverpool is definitely the best city - but I may be a bit biased

  2. A beautiful collage. Liverpool is not a city that I have ever visited but never say never I may one day.

  3. Lovely collage Janet, you should be proud-fantastic city.
    Have you been watching Cilla? just loving the production.
