    Default Liverpool History Photo Trivia

    Hi all

    This is another one where PhilipG might have to kindly sit back and not provide the answer to allow others the chance. Thanks, Philip.

    Correct. Both Albion House and New Scotland Yard on the Thames Embankment were designed by noted architect by Norman Shaw. On the Liverpool building he collaborated with J. Francis Doyle. New Scotland Yard was opened in the 1890's so is the historical Scotland Yard of the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes eras but has been since superceded by an even newer building located elsewhere. The original Scotland Yard got its name from being built at the location of the mansion house of the Kings of Scotland in medieval times when Scotland was a separate kingdom to England.


    Norman Shaw Building, Victoria Embankment, London, 1890

    Yes thanks, Ged. You have it. I only recently heard of this rumor myself. I don't know what basis of truth there may have been to the story. Sounds a bit of a stretch to me!

    It does to me too Chris as the Beatles have never mentioned it to my knowledge. There will always be rumours where a group of that magnitude is concerned though.

    A ship in another city. What's the name of the ship. Where is it? What is its connection to Liverpool?
