Nope not Greenwich - though I almost did put up a picture of Greenwich but changed my mind at the last minute. :)

Liverpool

Edward VII

Sir William Goscombe John, 1860-1952

1916; restored 2008

Bronze on a granite pedestal

Pier Head, Liverpool

This sturdy sculpture shows the King seated on horseback in a resolute but relaxed pose, with his horse reined in. The horse's stance, with arched neck and curved-in tail, is particularly characterful. When the bronze was restored, not only dirt but also layers of protective black and yellow paint and even car primer had to be removed from it (see Sharpe). These bear witness to earlier efforts to preserve the sculpture in its unusually exposed waterfront location. The details of the King's features and his regalia can now be seen more clearly.

Good bit of googling Clive - I was going to put up a picture of just the building (which is the Port of Liverpool building ) but decided to put the view with the statue with title in to make it easier but obviously made it too easy :)

As soon as you confirmed it was in the UK, it only took about 4 minutes to find on Bing images. (Mr. Google and i have had a falling out!! Long story. :P )

Okay gang ... I will look for one specific Wally image BUT ... if someone is itching to post a Wally image please go ahead!! I am running out of places. Please feel free to post a "Where's Wally" picture before me.

Anyone?

I have an evil image in mind, but it is a slide and my old travel slides are in disarray. ;)
