Do you have pictures of Liverpool schools?


I am engaged in research into the architecture and development of Liverpool's Board Schools, ie secular elementary schools built between 1870 and about 1905.

Most of these buildings have been demolished and it is proving difficult to obtain pictures of some of them. Examples are Harrington, Queen's Road, Roscommon Street, Sefton Park and Walton Lane, but there are many others.

If any reader has photographs or drawings of the exteriors of one or more of the schools of this period, and would be willing to lend them to me, I should be very grateful. All pictures would be treated very carefully and returned as quickly as possible. Postal costs would be reimbursed.

If you think you can help, please write to: F E Gersten, c/o The University of Liverpool, Department of Education, 19 Abercromby Square, Liverpool L69 7ZG.
