    Still open?
    The building in the photo has been demolished.

    I don't think the building in Fraser Street looks anything like the one in the photo.

    Yes, the Ann Fowlers of Netherfield rd no longer exists - it moved somewhere else - must be Fraser st as you say.

    The Ann Fowler Home was originally a Welsh Chapel serving the large Welsh population in Everton.

    I remember seeing the building years ago. It looked big, old and the bricks were black. I think by then it was closed and awaiting demolision. I always thought it was a school.

    Been in both places, Ann Fowlers, which was subsequently replaced with the Fraser Street Womens Hoster. Not as a resident, thank God, but as a housing officer trying to place the Women, which was, believe me, difficult as a lot of Landlords did not want to take "one of Ann Fowlers". Lots of sad stories and casualties but whilst I did not relish visiting, particularly Fowlers, you have to remember that it was established at a time when, sadly, womenwho were homeless literally on the street. "Fallen", as in "Fallen Women" could and did mean prostitution but for most women it could mean having a child, being abandoned, or being illegitimate or simply being poor. Many Women felt great shame being in there. As the Daughter of a Woman placed in an orphanage when her own Mother died, and a Father born illegitmate in Brownlow Hill Workhouse I always tried to place myself in the position of these Women I was interviewing. After all, there but for the grace of God.......................This brings back memories
