Conservation of the Post Office Memorial sculpture
The sculpture conservation department at the Conservation Centre was asked by the Post Office and Met Quarter Development to conserve the Tyson Smith Post Office Memorial and install it into the new Met Quarter shopping precinct on the site of the old Post Office in Liverpool city centre. A special base plate was made to accommodate the monument and raise it to the floor level.
Sculpture conservation conserved the memorial sculpture, which you can see in the image gallery above. As part of the project the plaques from the plinth at the base of the original memorial were replicated and commemorative medals were also produced.
