    Default old seaman's mission panels?

    am I correct in thinking these where originally in the old seaman's place in town?



    or where they somewhere else. I've definitely seen them before.

    I think you're right, I remember seeing that design in the middle one on a website and think it might even be incorporated in the Henry Pooley gates.

    Why not tell us where you took the photo?
    Do you mean the Mersey Mission to Seamen, because they're not from there.

    Sorry.
    I've been trying to upload pics to here and Flickr all evening and had to do dinner and nipped out to Crosby. Can't remember everything.
    They're in The Malmaison now, but I've definitely seen them somewhere else. May have been in the Museum of Liverpool Life

    I thought they looked like the mermaid ones from Sailors Home (or in the style of).
    There are/were examples in the museum. I haven't checked for a while, though. Or there are examples in Portmeirion, Wales.

    Edit: Just done a brief search of Flickr for Portmeirion...have a look at the bottom right of this pic:

    Yes, Marky, they're definitely from the Sailor's Home.
    I have a Merseyside County Museums photograph showing them (Negative No. N72-238).
    I don't think I'm too happy that they're in a hotel with (presumably) no knowledge of where they're from.
    Have Merseyside County Museums (or whatever they're now called) been selling their collection?
