Shanghai, New York and Cologne

by gordonmichaelsutton

Shanghai, New York and Cologne. What have these three great cities got in common?

They’re all twinned with Liverpool.

As befits this great port city, it’s reaching out to two other dynamic and cosmopolitan port cities – New York and Shanghai.

And in the case of Cologne in Germany, a city which like Liverpool, suffered much aerial bombardment during World War II.

So here to brighten things up a little is a picture of some of the detail on the largest Chinese archway in the western world . It’s nearly 14 metres high  and stands at the entrance to Nelson Street in the heart of Liverpool’s Chinatown and was built by craftsmen in Shanghai.
