I took this photo looking down from the top floor over the huge circular stairway that is the centrepiece of the new Museum of Liverpool, at Liverpool England, and it just fits the theme for Collage Obsession this week.
And for those of you who may not of met with the phrase 'up the apples and pears', it's Cockney (London) rhyming slang for stairs, like 'trouble and strife' for wife.
My husband says his family, in Liverpool, used the phrase 'up the dancers', but he has no idea where it came from. Until I married my family lived in a bungalow, so we never had any need to go up the stairs
And while we are on the subject of stairs, do you know this rhyme?
As I was going up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
I wish to heck he'd go away.
