Do you remember this giant Father Christmas which towered over shoppers in Blackler’s department store each winter from 1957 until 1988?
After undergoing a massive transformation, he went on display in the Museum of Liverpool’s atrium for the first time in more than 20 years in 2016 and has returned for Christmas almost every year since then.
The 18 foot Blackler’s Santa stands proudly in the museum’s Atrium and greets visitors with his jumbo smile. Visitors have been thrilled to be reacquainted with this symbol of their childhood and he has been winning new fans too as a younger generation meet this Liverpool icon.
