William Huskisson (1770 -1830).
William Huskisson (1770 -1830). First Member of Parliament for Liverpool - 1825 -1830. Killed accidentally by a railway locomotive at the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, 1830. 392/0/10361 DUKE'S TERRACE 05-MAR-10 Statue of William Huskisson II. Memorial statue. 1846. Cast by Ferdinand von Miller, director of the Royal Foundry in Munich, from marble statue of 1836 by sculptor John Gibson. Bronze. DESCRIPTION: Huskisson is depicted as a standing figure looking down in reflection. He is wearing a Roman toga with right shoulder and part of chest exposed. Left hand raised across chest and right hand holding a scroll. Behind is a bollard inscribed OPUS IOANNIS GIBSON ROMAE. / FUDIT FERD. MILLER MONACHII. / MDCCCXLVII. Modern granite plinth not of special interest. HISTORY: William Huskisson (1770-1830) was MP for Liverpool (1823-30), keen advocate for free trade, and supporter of Roman Catholic emancipation. First ever railway fatality, knocked down by Stevenson's Rocket on the occasion of the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1830. A public subscription for a memorial raised ?3,000 and a competition was agreed. Subsequently John Gibson, a celebrated local sculptor who had trained under Antonio Canova, was awarded the commission without recourse to a competition. A marble statue of 1833 was placed in Huskisson's mausoleum (q.v.), designed by John Foster Jnr in St James's Cemetery, Liverpool. A large number of subscribers complained that the statue could not be properly seen. Huskisson's wife paid for a second marble version to be made for the Customs House. It was instead placed at the Royal Exchange, London, now in Pimlico Gardens. Mrs Huskisson then paid for the third, bronze version. It was unveiled in 1847 in front of the Customs House. After World War II the Customs House was demolished due to bomb damage. In 1954 the statue was moved to the N end of the boulevard separating Princes Avenue and Princes Road. The pedestal remains, but the statue was pulled from it in 1982 because it was erroneously believed that Huskisson was a slave trader. It was then housed at the Oratory, St James's Mount Gardens until 2005, when it was moved to its present location. The statue has been restored since 1997 when it was described as having been coated in black epoxy resin and the surface of the bronze was extensively pitted with larger holes. SOURCES: Terry Cavanagh, Public Sculpture of Liverpool (Liverpool, 1997), 150-3. REASONS FOR DESIGNATION DECISION The memorial statue to William Huskisson is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * It is a well-executed memorial statue by the renowned Victorian sculptor, John Gibson, cast in bronze from the 1846 marble version by Ferdinand von Miller, Director of the Royal Foundry of Munich * The subject is interestingly portrayed in classical drapery, in the manner of a Roman senator, giving an air of grave dignity and simplicity, in contrast to the prevailing fashion of the time of using contemporary dress for memorial statues * Huskisson, who was MP for Liverpool (1823-30) and advocate for free trade, is now most commonly remembered for his notorious death as the first ever railway fatality, being run over by Stevenson's Rocket at the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1830. Source: English Heritage From Public Sculpture of Sussex "On 15 September 1830, at the opening ceremonies for the world's first ever passenger steam railway (between Liverpool and Manchester), Huskisson was run over and killed by Stephenson's Rocket because he had not taken sufficient care before crossing the track to start a conversation with the Duke of Wellington. He lived for a few hours after the accident, was lucid enough to dictate and sign a codicil to his will, and met his end with dignity. He had been politically instrumental in bringing about the new and very visible triumph of technology that was the Liverpool and Manchester railway line. William Huskisson was born in Worcestershire in 1770. In 1793 he entered parliament as MP for Morpeth, Northumberland. In 1804 he was elected for the constituency of Liskeard and became Secretary of the Treasury. He held the same appointment in Portland's ministry of 1804-09. In 1811 he became a Commissioner of the Woods and Forests. In 1823 he was appointed as President of the Board of Trade and Treasurer of the Navy in Liverpool's ministry. Under Wellington he was Colonial Secretary but resigned in 1828. Huskisson had threatened to resign on a number of occasions. Wellington may have been completely wearied by Huskisson's constant threats to resign. Huskisson's tendered his resignation over what was to be done with the two parliamentary seats that were to be disenfranchised for corruption in 1828 (Penryn and East Retford) - not expecting his resignation accepted. Wellington perhaps was glad of an excuse to remove him. Charles Greville wrote about Huskisson, soon af
We were standing in the rain..
... and it didn't matter... Harmony I just came from school when my cellphone rang. It was my brother. "Our training will be extended", he said. "I am sorry, you have to eat alone." I knew that he was going about to say next. I hope I can be home in the afternoon . "I hope I can be home in the afternoon." See? "It's okay", I mumbled into the mouthpiece. "I can handle myself." That was a typical day in my life. I cam from school, received a call from Christian where he explained he couldn't make it again, and then I waited until the evening for him to get home. But it didn't bother me. I loved it, beeing alone and have time for myself. Sometimes I visited my brother at the training, sometimes I saw some friends - but most of the time I loved my lonelyness, I kept house, I did long promenades alone, I watched the citylights from my secret place... and all in all I was happy with my life. Thats me - Harmony, a normal girl with an uncommon name. My mother gave it to me. Our father left us for another women shortly after my birth. We never heard from him again. When I was 11 my mother conctracted cancer and shortly after that she died. My brother was going to be full aged and he decided to live at mums old flat taking care of me. Now some years are gone, but I still miss my mom. Maybe that is the reason I love beeing alone. But whatever. I don't care. I could have lived like this. All in all we were fine. Christian and me lived peaceful, passing through good times and bad ones. He finished school, got a work, trained hard for the figure skating championships... and was almost never at home. Sometimes I cooked dinner for him, sometimes he brought some pizza or chinese food and then we were sitting in the small living room, talking about what we had experienced this day, we played cards, chess or other games and he sent me to bed in time. I was as confident as much our situation allowed it. And then he came into my life and changed it radically... It was the day when my brother and his dance partner where celebrating their accession performing at the World Championships in figure skating. One invited us to an extravagant gala. I was nervous, I didn't like the upper society. All the superficial conversations and the fake smiles - i hated them. But my brother wanted me to celebrate with them, so I did him this favour. I talked with people I didn't know, I smiled and laughed, I shook endless hands... just like Christian expected it from me. I soon got bored but whatever. This was his evening and I didn't want to ruin it. I was stuck in another dull conversation when I noticed a goodlooking man's regard on me. I turned my head a bit more to answer this regard. When our eyes met my heart stopped beating. Geez, this man was good looking! He had dark eyes and his dark hair surrounded his exotic, beautiful face. He weared a dark drapery around his front and he looke very elegant in his dark suit. For some seconds we were looking at each other. Then suddendly he became aware of it and looked away. It was hard but I made it turning my head around and facing the people again, with whom I had spoken. My heart was still pounding. Now the evening got interesting for me. I turned my head around but the mysterious man was gone. "Ah, here she is!", I heard my brothers voice. "Harmony, would you come over here?" I followed my brothers demand and joined him and his trainer Stephanie. I greeted her, she was a nice person. "I have some news for you that you might not like", she said and I prepared myself for bad news. "Eva and your brother need a serious training before the Championships are starting. That means I want to coach him every day in the week." - "I want to be sure that this ain't a problem for you", Christian said. Automaticly I shook my head. "Of course not! Otherwise he has no winning chances", I heard myself speaking. Steph and Christian were aglow with happiness. "Stephanie, here's somebody who'd love to speak with you", a pleasant voice was speaking. I turned around and faced the mysterious man in companionship with an older man. He didn't notice me. Stephs regard turned dark. "Sure", she said with a cold voice. "Christian, Harmony - this is a good friend of mine, his name is Fei and he's from China. Would you excuse me for a minute?" She disappeared with the older man. "Congrats for the Championships", Fei turned to my brother. His voice was soft and clear and I felt my heart was about to beat faster again... "Thank you very much", Christian smiled and shook the hand Fei was offering him. They began a conversation and I listened attentive. I didn't want to miss this beautiful voice, even Fei didn't look at me. Then Eva, Christians dancepartner appeared and took him with her and I found myself alone with Fei. Afraid f
