    I feel it's appalling that one of the most important 19th C women in England, Josephine Butler, who lived on Park Rd, Dingle, Toxteth is not commemorated by Liverpool.

    I used to work in that building IIRC there is a wall plaque dedicated to the wife of Rev. Johnston on the first half landing. He put up the money so that she could be remembered.

    I agree.

    Considering that Liverpool has had many Important people there sure are a lack of blue plaques but they only used to ever put these plaques up In London.

    It was a few years ago when they put these plaques up outside of London.
