Memories of Liverpool, SS Majestic, White Star Line 1890
My mum lived in Lamb Street, the bottom half, she lived with her mother Harriet Prescott, sister Gertie and brother Billy. When Mum was born she was given the same name as her mother. They were bombed out of Lamb Street during the war, there do not seem to be any photos in books on the website of Lamb Street. Mum had many happy memories of Lamb Street and remembers Father Winder, although mum was C of E she said he was a very nice man and was well liked by all. Has anyone any photos of Lamb street? We all would love to see them. Best wishes Margery Hall.
My greatgrandfather Patrick Matthews, his second wife Mary Ann (Smith) together with their daughter Rose sailed on the maiden voyage of the Majestic to New York in April 1890. Patrick was from Cootehill, CountyCavan, Ireland. In 2005 I found his descendants living in Florida. My husband and I flew to America for a holiday and met our new cousins.
On 25 June 1890 my grandmother, Emma L Hasell, 24 years old, left her life as a household servant and sailed on the Majestic for New York where she joined her fiance, William Henry Pickering, formerly of Silverdale and Tunbridge Wells. She stayed in the YWCA until she found work. They married in November 1891.

I can clearly remember pushing my doll's pram up to the shops with my Mother from our home in South Mossley Hill Road. I was always fascinated by the overhead cash delivery system in the Co-op shops. The very end shop was the Co-op selling haberdashery and shoes, I think that was where my love for shoes was ...Read full memory
I lived in a flat at 185a Kensington. I recall watching the Lodges marching along the road on the 12th July. We would walk down Brunswick Road into town. At Xmas, we would go to the grotto at TJ Hughes, I remember being very impressed with the Dancing Waterfalls one year. It was always a treat to walk ...Read full memory
Hi, I too emigrated to Canada but in about 1954 when I was nearly three. We had to come back the following year as my father was ill, and I think it must have been on the return journey that I remember the rocking horse too! Thanks for reminding me of this and of the portholes in the ship. Those two things stuck in my mind.
