    Post Liverpool Warehousing

    My father-in-law, John Brown (Jackie) worked at Liverpool Warehousing. I think he was a driver.
    He is second from the left in this pic.
    Don't know when it was taken. But it would be after at least 1946
    Does anyone know anything about this company, or maybe you know someone in the photo.

    They started in 1895 and closed in 1983. 70 Pall Mall, Liverpool. They had fourteen subsidiary firms. They were the largest firm of warehouse-keepers in the UK Its main commodity was cotton. In 1986 the firm became part of the Transport Development Group.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    There are a few old warehouses around that still bear the companies' name, in large lettering. I'll keep an eye out for them.

    Thank You all! It's amazing, you can have a photo & info for years & never really appreciate or understand them. Then you put it all out there for everyone to see & it suddenly becomes more meaningful.
    Thanks again & I look forward to anymore info anyone might have!
