    Default The Sailor's Home

    Hello Everyone

    I don't know if this is a radical idea or not, but it occurs to me that the Sailor's Home, which should never have been demolished, because it was one of the architectural jewels of Liverpool, could be rebuilt, as were whole cities, such as Ypres in Belgium, after the World Wars.

    I would also like to note that the galleries inside the Sailor's Home are almost a clone of the George Peabody Library in Baltimore, where I live and, which, thankfully, is still in existence.

    Best regards

    Wouldn't that be wonderful if it could be done? One of those old pics of the advertising boards on Paradise Street takes me back a couple of years to just before the big PSD development began!

    Hi Kev

    I think the trick with any of these things, just as in the objective or being a writer, or anything, is never give up. In my War of 1812 work I have been involved with helping to save a piece of the Battlefield at North Point, fought between the British and Americans outside of Baltimore, September 12, 1814, the precurser of the bombardment of Fort McHenry that led to the writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner." We have just been successful, after a ten-year battle, in having the state of Maryland purchase 9 1/2 acres of land that had been slated for a supermarket, and it is also our hope now to reclaim other land that has been built on in the last fifty years.

    All my best

    Chris

    Thanks Bobby. By the way, if you get the chance to see it, I am featured as a talking head in the History Channel documentary "First Invasion: The War of 1812". The documentary mostly covers what happened here in Washington and Baltimore, with some mention of other events on the border with Canada and at New Orleans.

    Where would we be without 'talking heads'. Lol. Any idea when it's being shown? History channel is one of my faves.
