    Default The Liverpool Gymnasium Training College for Women

    I was having a mooch through the old postcards for sale on ebay and came across two cards relating to the Liverpool Gymnasium Training College. I've never heard of it before, does anyone know where it was/is?

    Never heard of it. I only heard of the Nautical College the other day though.

    That was by Liverpool Cricket ground wasn't it? I remember when I left school that there was an option to serve an apprenticeship there.

    There's a pic on here somewhere, Colin's I think.

    Although just had a look at that postcard, looks different



    Just found Colin's....obviously not the same place.......

    I'm beginning to suspect that although it was called The Liverpool Gymnasium Training College that it wasn't actually in Liverpool. There's a 'London, W.' on the bottom right of the cards which I thought was where the card was printed rather than where the place it depicts was.
