Fred's Weather Map, Albert Dock, Liverpool (2003)

Prior to 2000 Granada Television (the ITV company for the north-west of England) produced a programme on most mornings called 'This Morning' from Liverpool. (The programme - like the Manchester Guardian before it moved to London and has not really been the same since.)

 

One of the features of the programme when it was in Liverpool was this floating map of Great Britain and Ireland. The weather presenter (called Fred) used to jump from Great Britain on the right over to Ireland on the left and back again. There used to be small models of key landmarks as well on the map.

 

The map had gone by the time of my next visit here in 2010 www.flickr.com/photos/browniebear/4761501649/
