St. Luke's Church, otherwise known to the locals as the 'bombed-out church', has already been introduced once here. (Please refer to the link at the end of this article for further reading) It's difficult to miss this church during your travel in Liverpool. Other than the Anglican Cathedral and the Metropolitan Cathedral, I think this is yet another unique landmark of the city. 

St. Luke's 教堂之前就有介紹過了。(詳見延伸閱讀)在利物浦我們都稱他為「炸爛的教堂」。這座教堂的位置讓你很難不去注意到他。除了一座英國國教教堂及一座天主教教堂之外,這又是另一個利物浦的獨特地標了!

From the outside, it looks as though it's a properly functioning church. The truth is, there is no interior. It has been made into a space for arts and culture, which is probably the best way to help preserve a building. 

從外觀看來,似乎是個很正常的教堂。但事實上他是沒有內部的。這個地方被變作為一個文藝交流的空間。我想這是唯一能夠保存歷史建築的最佳辦法了吧!

You can see the hollow 'interior'. 
這張圖片中可見空洞的"內部"。

Pity it was bombed, but I can't help but think how they could've bombed the church without destroying the exterior! 

雖然被炸了有點可惜,但還是忍不住會想:要這樣不損壞外觀的炸,還挺難的吧!?

You'll always be able to find these tokens that commemorate those who lost their lives in WWII around the vicinity. 

在教堂周圍或鄰近處隨時可見這些為紀念二次世界大戰中喪失性命的人們。

Revisiting a place that you use to often walk pass is always a very emotional experience. 

重返曾經常常經過的事物總是會喚起許多不同的感覺與思念。

Let my memories be like this 'bombed-out' church - preserved despite the fact that there is no longer content. Because the existence of its remains, is enough to last forever. 

願我對利物浦的回憶就像這座教堂一樣:即使已經沒有"內容",但其餘的只要它存在,就足以直到永遠。
