Writing on the Wall

We had a great turn-out at the Writing on the Wall event, when I conducted a walking tour around the city centre. We started at St Luke’s church, where the Memorial to the Irish Famine stands. The walk took in the old Pleasant Street School, the former Irish Centre, a view of both cathedrals and a peek inside the grandiose Oratory to see the statue of Agnes Jones. We finished by visiting the gravestone of Kitty Wilkinson in the grounds of the cemetery below the Anglican cathedral. From there we took the short walk to Toxteth Library, the headquarters of Writing on the Wall, just on the other side of Parliament Street. Here we had tea and biscuits and a discussion about Liverpool in years gone past.
