Suitcases of Concrete
A Case History, Concrete, Liverpool. Credit: That James on Flickr (cc)
What appears at first glance to be a pile of old suitcases on a street in Liverpool turns out to be a concrete sculpture installed by artist John King in 1997. The Hope Street sculpture is labelled with the names of famous Liverpool residents from the past. Titled "A Case History", the piece is a great example of public art, almost indestructible, which adds to the culture of an interesting area of Liverpool.
