    Default Florence Institute Toxteth

    Looks like they have done a good job of the refurbishment hopefully the community will take full use of it

    Thanks for posting that. It sure looks good on the inside. It's possible to see the entire exterior, too, now that the scaffolding/covers have been removed. In particular the hugh restored copper dome looks fantastic and can even be seen from New Ferry Esplanade!

    I used to pass the Florrie quite a lot up until five years ago or so and it was just a building falling down. Those before and after pictures are wonderful. It is great to see such a fine building now back to its former glory. What a great job the builders etc have done.

    Thank you for posting the images Joe and Lenka.

    A cracking building, one my Dingle-ite pa-in-law went to as a youngster. Great pics too Joe, as we come to expect. I will have to get back down when the railings are removed.
