Hello the very few people who will see this. this entry is outside of the usual realms of this word and picture hole cause I'm not advertising a gig.
This one is about the small obsession I have with one of Liverpool's most odd pieces of architecture - In the churchyard of the derelict St. Andrew's Church of Scotland on Roscoe St is a pyramid to James Mackenzie which was built in 1868. Mackenzie was a railway contractor and reputed to have been an avid gambler. Folklore has it that he wished to be buried sitting upright at a card table with a winning hand, after losing his soul in a card game with the Devil who said he'd collect it once he was dead and buried.
