Another couple of photos from Bernie’s collection.
While all the sculptures I’ve blogged about so far are still present on campus, the one seen in this photo is no longer here. The photo shows Bernie and a colleague tending the rose bed in front of the main building.
Does anybody know its name, the sculptor, why it is no longer there or where it went to?
A very young Bernie with his colleagues in the grounds team and Miss Coles who was head of one of the college departments.
Bernie Williams worked on the Edge Hill grounds from 1972 until his retirement last year. During his time tending the grounds he took many photographs which he has kindly agreed to share with us.
The above photo appears to depict a new Massey Ferguson 230 but according to TractorData.com (yes, really) that model was only produced between 1976 and 1983. It’s possible the photo is missing a 1 and it’s actually a Massey Ferguson 1230 but I’ve not been able to find many photos of one to confirm. Maybe a reader could assist further? It is possible to see the tax disc so we know that it was bought in 1995.
More photos from Bernie soon!
