Image title: Liverpool former Lewis's friezes

Liverpool former Lewis

Friezes above the entrance to Lewis's department store, which closed its doors in 2007. Above the entrance is the 'exceedingly bare' statue of a male figure by Jacob Epstein. With the closure of Lewis's the future of these unique artworks is uncertain.

If anyone can provide more information, please contact.

The panels or bas-reliefs present some intriguing subject matter: The left hand one features a mass fight with boys in short trousers, one trampled under foot. The middle one is of a child sitting in a pram with a dog holding up his paw. The right hand frieze is of boys similar those on the left but they are all asleep except one.
