    Default Fazakerley.

    West Derby Homes off Longmoor Lane in Fazakerley included a baths and quarantine home where the 'inmates' were scrubbed clean.

    In the late 1800s, industrial trainers and teachers taught the children the art of fruit, vegetable and flower growing as well as tailoring, baking and shoemaking. They are still owned by the council including the social services division and it is like a little village within a city.

    Known to us 'Oldies' as Fazakerley Cottage Homes.
    I spent a year+ there just after the war.
    The building you can see on the right of the clock tower was the 'home' I was in (I think it was No 12).

    Also to the right of the clock, but out of picture, was the baths and a yard for the workshops and utillities.

    To the left of the clock was a short side road where the school was. That at one time also had a swimming pool in the basement.

    The Hall in the centre was the Chappel amongst other things. I remember having a xmas party there.

    From there I went to Olive Mount for a number of years.

    Do a Google search for Friends of Fazakerley. I think they may still have a site up.

    Phredd.

    If tomorrow starts without me, remember I was here.

    Funnily enough I never learned to swim there. The place I learnt to swim was just across the fields, down the lane??, in the L & L Canal from the old swing bridge.
