Stephen McKay has kindly contributed many of the following wonderful images to our tribute to the Liverpool Sailors' Home.
More information and pictures will be added as they become available. Stephen's fascinating history of the building is here....
A beautiful watercolour by W G Herdman 1864. The first of three views separated by 40 years
but taken from an identical viewpoint and consequently showing remarkably similarities...
A photograph from 1875
A 1905 postcard.
An evocative view of the Sailor's Home and trams from the corner of Park Lane
An American clock decorated with a print of the Sailor's Home on a glass panel

|Corner sections removed from the Sailors' Home in 1974. They spent some years in Staffordshire before being auctioned and installed in the Liverpool Malmaison Hotel. Jools Holland now owns one of these corner sections, removed in the 1940s by Clough Williams-Ellis.|
