The Anonymous Widower

Back To The Sixties

In 1965 when I went to Liverpool University, the Electrical Engineering and Electronics building was brand new.

It appears to have worn reasonably well and is just how I remember it all those years ago. So bits have been replaced and it’s been redecorated, but it is a real credit to its creators, which you can’t say for many of the buildings of the time.

It’s still contains all the original prints too.  Some of which I seem to remember.

However the infamous legend by one painting has been removed. It had been beautifully typed and framed and said something like. “Unfortunately, we were unable to afford a painting by this artist.  ut he was kind enough to sell us the rag on which he wiped his brushes!”

After the lecture, we retired to one of the staff’s room and I was pleased to see that he still had a genuine blackboard with real chalk on the wall.

How civilised!
