A mural of Ringo Starr, commissioned by Liverpool artist John Culshaw, is unveiled on the gable end of the Empress Pub on Admiral Street
A huge mural of Ringo Starr has been completed on the site of a former pub a stone’s throw from the former Beatle’s childhood home in Liverpool. He was born just around the corner from the pub, in Madryn Street in the Dingle area of south Liverpool.
Growing up, he lived close by in Admiral Grove from the age of six. His mother, Elsie, worked as a barmaid at the pub in High Park Street, Toxteth, before Ringo, then known as Richard Starkey, found fame and fortune in the Fab Four.
The musician later paid tribute to his local, The Empress, on the cover of his first solo album, Sentimental Journey. Despite closing down a number of years ago, The Empress is a destination for Beatles fans taking in the city, with tourists frequently visiting the landmark.
The new mural has been painted by Liverpool artist John Culshaw. Culshaw has also painted a number of football-themed murals across the city.
A Beatles-themed hotel has been rumoured for the building, but, according to Liverpool City Council planning documents, the former pub is to be converted into a house of multiple occupancy.
