Not to be trifled with, even if she is showing her delicate nature with the egg...
Chris: She could be construed as the mother in law from hell Ray..
it's a strange bronze statue Chris... a business woman carrying an egg...
the people beside her seem to be at odds... she is concentrating on the floor....petersmile
Chris: They are reading a descriptive plaque Peter
A good composition with the statue front and center. If I was standing there I'd be looking at the statue (not the floor tile) wondering why she is showing an egg.
Chris: I have no idea why she is showing an egg Jacquelyn, I shall have to research this facet

Are those people looking for eggs... I think there is first Christmas and the next one is Easter... they have to wait for a few months....
Great statue.
Chris: This picture was taken at Liverpool Lime Street station Astrid. The woman depicted used to be the local member of parliament Bessie Braddock, a fearsome creature if ever there was one!
A great shot! I love the statue - and the couple!
Chris: They looked pretty confused at the time..

So it's is true ''Go to work on an egg''.
Chris: As a true socialist I am sure Mrs Bessie Braddock is your pin up gal Comrade

"I have invented the egg ..." I cannot read any explanation to this statue.
Chris: I cannot understand why Mrs Bessie Braddock MP is holding an egg either Philine. Research will have to be done!

Come clean, and tell us all, Chris
Chris: Surely you remember the lovely curvatious sex bomb Mrs Bessie Braddock MP Lisl. This is Liverpool Lime Street station
I'm very sure there's a story behind that egg, Chris...but what exactly it is, I have no clue!
Chris: I am going to have to research this Ginnie

Great catch. I think he asked the woman with the egg for directions and now she is hanging her head in shame.
Chris: That is certainly what it looks like Louis

The statue appears to be someone in drag carrying an egg; all very odd. The couple on the right can't bring themselves to look at it.
Chris: Liverpool - land of the odd.

Next to this statue there was one of Ken Dodd complete with tickling stick..
I rather like the statue Tiff, but as for that bloke, why is he showing his ticket?
Chris: I think he is exhibiting nerves Chad, as anyone would in front of fearsome Bessie..
She perhaps was bemoaning the lives of working women who are thinking of supper chores at home while they work away.
Chris: That is a possibility Mary; she was a socialist
I expect the couple's response to the statue is quite a common one Chris. A rather formidable woman delicately holding an egg is rather perplexing
Chris: I shall have to Google this Janet

"Bessie Braddock holds a handbag in one hand and in the other an egg, as she was the politician responsible for putting the lion standard mark on British eggs." She loved the people of Liverpool.
Chris: A round of applause to you Philine!

"Much of Bessie Braddock’s politics had been shaped by her family who were active in Liverpool’s socialist scene. In her autobiography ‘The Braddock’s’ Bessie recalled helping her mother on the soup lines in Liverpool, “I remember the faces of the unemployed when the soup ran out. I remember their dull eyes and their thin, blue lips. I remember blank, hopeless stares, day after day, week after week, all through the hard winter of 1906-7, when I was seven years old. I saw the unemployed all over Liverpool.”

Bessie Braddock was elected as a Member of Parliament for Liverpool Exchange in the post-war 1945 election, she was also a member of the Labour Party National Executive Committee and in 1968 was vice-chairman of the Labour Party.

Bessie Braddock also fought for the fashion rights of larger women, with measurements of 50”, 40”, 50” she understood their struggle to find clothes. In 1959 she took part in a London fashion show for larger than average women."
Chris: This is all fascinating information Philine: thank you
Bessie Braddock and Ena Sharples would have made good companions, or would they smile
Chris: Hahaha!!
Most unusual...
Chris: Many persons sailed for the USA from Liverpool Larry
Apparently she was responsible for the lion stamp on eggs
Chris: So Philine says, so that must be right..

Iconic statue of an impressive woman
Chris: I have been reading about her Anne, I do not think it would be wise to argue with such a person
