Left luggage in Liverpool





I took these shots in Hope Street recently. Positioned outside Liverpool College of Art, A Case History is a sculpture that consists of stacks of concrete suitcases and bags as if they’ve been abandoned at an airport or train station. Designed by the John King, it was installed in 1998. There are 27 suitcases and a couple of guitar cases which are labelled with the names of influential Liverpudlian writers, composers, musicians, architects, photographers and political activists such as Lennon and McCartney, feminist pioneer Josephine Butler and Merseyside poets Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Patten.
