Liverpool Statues -1

The statues of comedian Ken Dodd and late politician Bessie Braddock were officially unveiled on the concourse of Lime Street Station on June 11th 2009.
The 80-year-old “King of Mirthyside” was at the event with his trademark tickling sticks alongside members of Bessie Braddock’s family.
Sculptor Tom Murphy spent a year creating the statues which are called Chance Meeting and stand on the site of the former Virgin Trains welcome lounge.
Doddy is seen carrying an overnight bag and wielding his famous tickling stick, while Bessie Braddock holds a handbag in one hand and in the other an egg, as she was the politician responsible for putting the lion standard mark on British eggs.
