IMAGE OF THE WEEK

An Historic Photograph That’s Just Days Old?

This photograph was taken in the Liverpool ONE shopping centre mid-afternoon on Saturday 30th May 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic and already it can be regarded as ‘historic’.

Since the day it opened in 2008, Liverpool ONE has been extremely popular with shoppers and never more so than on a Saturday afternoon. Normally, the walkways and stores would be crowded, with zero chance of ‘social distancing’.

Coronavirus put paid to all that and, since March, stores, cinemas, cafes and restaurants have been shuttered and the complex has resembled a ghost town.

We can but hope that the great coronavirus pandemic and lockdown of 2020 was a one-off and that the photograph shown here portrays an historic event, never to be repeated.
