Swept away by your captions

A big thank you to everyone who entered our latest caption competition. Our judge, Stephen Shakeshaft, was so impressed that he couldn’t pick one winner and has very generously awarded a prize of a signed copy of his book ‘No Illusions’ each to three joint winners:

  • Robbie for his entry: ‘Hey kids I’m Liverpools new central defender they call me the sweeper’;
  • Jonathan for ‘I swept your grandmother off her feet and now i see your smiles’ and
  • Stu for ‘Mind your brush for a shilling Mister..?’

You can see all of the entries on the original post for November’s caption competition.

And don’t forget that you can see this photo and more in the exhibition Liverpool People by Stephen Shakeshaft, which is at the National Conservation Centre until 24 January 2010. Stephen will be giving a talk in the exhibition on Wednesday 9 December at 2pm.
