    Fine photies of a very interesting section of Liverpool, Kev. You should go across Aigburth Road to St. Michael's-in-the-Hamlet as well to get some more great shots.

    lovely photos Kev.
    I love Lark Lane, it has a feel that nowhere else in Liverpool quite has.
    It could easily be 1960's when you are in that area...I love it!

    I would love to know some more history of it though...
    Never really seen any old pics...
    Only read one little piece about it in a Whittington Egan book..

    Hi Kev and MissInformed

    As I mentioned on another thread, Mrs. Maybrick was imprisoned in the Lark Lane Police Station after her arrest on suspicion of having poisoned husband James Maybrick at their mansion on Riversdale Road. James died at Battlecrease House on May 11, 1889. It is interesting to note, Kev, from the pic of datestone on the police station that you posted, the station was almost brand new when Florence was behind bars there, or at least it was but five years old, having been built in 1884.

    Also, good observation, Kev, that the architecture of the Garston and Lark Lane police stations is similar. It occurs to me they might have been built by the same architect or builder who was working for the Liverpool City Police.

    Kev, I will also look forward to seeing your St. Michael's pics when you get around to taking them.

    Default Lark Lane and Garston Police Stations

    Lark Lane and Garston Police Stations were built by and for the Lancashire County Constabulary under whose jurisdiction in these areas where until 1895 when they came under the city of Liverpool.

    Contrary to popular belief Florence Maybrick was not lodged at Lark Lane Police Station after her arrest. She was ill at the time and remained at home until she was transferred to Walton prison. However she was lodged at the station while the inquest was being held at Garston. At the time Heald Street police station had not been built and the Lancashire Constabulary were using premises on St Mary's Road, Garston. These premises still exist they are now a shop known as "Carberry Parts". If you look up to the gable end of the premises you will see a plaque on which is marked "Constabulary station" and the Lancashire symbol of the three Lions. That symbol can also be seen on Lark Lane Police Station and Garston Police Station (Heald Street).

    Welcome to the forum.
    Very interesting about the various places associated with Florence Maybrick.
    I'm no expert about the subject, but wasn't the Reading Room in Wellington Street involved in the case?

    Lark Lane is one of the nicest Bohemian areas of Liverpool.

    Love the whole Sefton Park zone there's nowhere in a British city quite like that.

    Default Former Masonic pub.

    Now painted black, which I think is awful, and it's called 'Negresco', which sounds rather racist to me.
