Liverpool, Knowsley Hall 1890

More about this scene


Caption for Liverpool, Knowsley Hall 1890: Knowsley is the home of the Stanley family, and is one of the most imposing of the large houses around Liverpool. It is also unique in that it is still today the home of Lord Derby (the title of the Stanley family). Here we have a good view of the large house which has welcomed so many kings, queens and princes over the years. Some came to stay as they journeyed around the country, but many more came as friends, to relax, or to take in a few days shooting. The older part of the hall is on the right, and though much of the estate is now given over to the Safari Park, the Hall still retains much of its family touch.

The office staff relocated to the main store during 1953/54. I worked with a friend called Margaret Langshaw. We both left to work at (...Read full memory)

I went to Bankfield School. I left in 1975 and my best friend was Alma Knowles. Don't know what became of Alma as we lost contact. I would love to see her again to catch up on old times, she may be married so I don't know how to find her. I have tried Bankfield it was the best school I went to. When I left the school was named Hollylodge - it's now another school...those were the days.
