Liverpool is an iconic English city, famous for the Beatles, its music scene, the River Mersey, and the Royal Liver building.
The building was constructed in 1911 as the base for the Royal Liver Assurance group.
It is now one of the most famous landmarks of the city and is both a Grade 1 Listed Building and part of the city’s designated UNESCO World Heritage status.
Of course, mention of the Liver Building would not be complete without reference to the two Liver Birds on top of the building.
Legend has it that these birds keep watch over Liverpool and look out to sea – and if these winged protectors ever disappear, the life of the city would end.
In celebration of the centenary of the famous building, the Liverpool Daily Post has reported that Gerry Jones has special plans all of his own.
This former school teacher has created a stencil of the Liver Birds for use in a coffee shop.
Mr. Jones wants Liverpool to create its very own brand of coffee-design by sprinkling cocoa powder on top of the city’s cappuccinos in the shape of the emblematic birds.
Mr. Jones has described his invention as creating the ‘Lyverchino’ and his designs have already caught the attention and enthusiasm of several local coffee shop owners.
The inventor noticed that other tourist or historic sites celebrated in similar coffee-design style and he saw no reason why Liverpool should not join in with this tradition.
