    Hiya. Saw your posting on another forum.

    This was used as the LP cover on Ringo Starr's first post Beatles solo album - Sentimental Journey which contained covers of songs 'me mam used to sing and like' he recalled. His mum Elsie worked in there as a barmaid when young Richard Starkey lived in the next street at 10 Admiral Grove having moved from nearby 9 Madryn Street as a toddler. There is mention over the pub door of its use on the cover.

    Gores or Kellys street directories will give you its previous uses, it still stands as the Empress pub today.

    It is on the pubs page of my site below or if you google Ringo's album, a pic will come up.

    I would suspect the Empress pub was built around 1870 to 1880 or so. If you want a more accurate date, you'd need to check the Liverpool Directories for the period. Photo attached taken in 1920s. Courtesy of "Pub on Every Corner" vol 2 by Freddy O'Connor
