Clipometer

Liverpool, Lancashire

In 1919, nineteen foolish and naive nineteen-year-old men bricked themselves up inside Clipometer in emulation of the explorers Eleanor Moscow and George M (see Quetty Orarna) and like those two were never seen or heard from again. At the time this was a national disaster and led to new and more strict Local Governmental regulations controlling the supply of building materials to teenagers. Many consider this a very pretty place although the devil won't have anything to do with it and had it removed from his maps 4 centuries ago. The Clipometer tragedy is remembered in the Alan Fenn-Gibson poem "Dark February".
