This website is intended for those interested in sculpture It covers Victorian and Edwardian sculptors, an amount of earlier sculpture, and material on London sculpture and monuments in London churches, and sculpture in some other towns and cities in England. There is also a section on allegorical sculpture, the 'alphabet' in the list below. As ever, throughout the site, click on any picture to enlarge it in the usual way. Main sections are:
Recent additions to this site include several on Liverpool: Castle Street architectural sculpture, and two specific buildings on that street: the Adelphi Bank and the British and Foreign Marine Insurance Company, which also has mosaics, example below. Also two pages on the sculpture in the centre: statues beside St George's Hall, and in St John's Gardens on the other side. And a brief page on the bombed church of St Luke's Church, on Berry Street at the upper end of Bold Street. In London, there is a page on Queen Square, Bloomsbury, and Tottenham Court Road and Fitzroy Square off it, and still in Bloomsbury, a note on St George's Gardens.
Sculpture of the Month for December, however, is a most significant sculpturally decorated building in Manchester, the Free Trade Hall, with much carving by John Thomas, continuing a series of occasional pages on the sculpture in the city.
