The 2016 Lowry Lounge: consular Liverpool postcards
For this year's Lounge Colin Dilnot led a walking tour of some of Liverpool’s phantom consulates, stopping at each site to reveal their relevance to Lowry and to read short extracts from his work. Here, participants on the walk were also given a postcard relating to Lowry's problematic relationship to border crossings. At the start of the walk, they were issued with a passport that was stamped at each stop and acted as a wallet for the postcards. The cards are reproduced here, both the image and the text on the reverse.
