    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.

    Only got the Lennon Plaque though. ScouserDave's pictorial has a page with more blue plaques but his sites not working and he's dissapeared.



    I want a blue plaque on my house or a red one since I'm a scouser, scouse plaques should be red.

    Don't know why they wait until your dead though to put one up.

    Harrison's plaque In Arnold Grove kept getting taken down.

    William Rathbone (Liverpool merchant and champion of nursing reforms) and Eleanor Rathbone MP (feminist and social reformer).

    Could we have pics of the complete buildings please, as well as the plaques?
    The pics of the plaques are nice, but it would be great to see exactly where these people lived.
    I'll take one of Ullet Road tomorrow.

    Peter Ellis designed and was the architect behind Oriel Chambers, Water st and 16 Cook st - two pioneering way of building and apparently the fore-runners to some of the famous U.S. buildings. Mass Glass exteriors, the spiral staircase of cook st encased in glass - a bit ahead of his time with his controvesial designs you might say.

    The work of Ellis included 14 Oriel Chambers, Water Street, once described as 'one of the most remarkable buildings of its date in Europe'.

    Very good, Ged and Max.
    His buildings were so far ahead of their time, that they were ridiculed so much by his contemporaries, that 16 Cook Street and Oriel Chambers are thought to be the only buildings he ever designed.
    If I was forced to pick just one building in Liverpool as my favourite, it would be Oriel Chambers.

    The Echo says they've been trading there since 1817!
    Quite remarkable considering the building was built in 1864.
