Antiques

Antiques, 130 Bold Street, Liverpool L1, 2003 (top) and 2014 • Ah, groovy Davida font. Amazing how much of central Liverpool is still derelict, this was the same in 2003 and 2014, including the weird shell-clad car (or is it a weird chair?) in the window.

  1. The shell-encrusted window display is a boat, and yes, unbelievably it’s still there, covered in cobwebs and filth, with (as far as I can remember) , Mickey Mouse at the helm. I get the feeling that if it were moved, it would crumble into dust. Further down the street, a hearing aid shop used to have in pride of place in its window a gilded baroque throne known as the King of Portugal’s Speaking Chair, whereby courtiers could address his majesty via speaking tubes in the arms, or somesuch. I wonder what happened to it?
