Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine

17 June 2003

Liverpool is famously the home of the Beatles, and this sculpture is of the submarine that features in one of their most popular songs. It was originally constructed by apprentices from the Cammell Laird shipyard for the International Garden Festival that was held in Liverpool in 1984, and moved to Chavasse Park, opposite the Albert Dock, once the festival closed.

After this photograph was taken, in 2005, the park was redeveloped and the submarine moved to a new location outside Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
