    Hi
    My grandad worked for Milner's about 1920-30's (I think). They had a factory in Smithdown Road. On a 1928 map there is a Milner Street, off Aigburth St, next to the factory. It got bombed in 1940 and they moved (see article about "Pearsons" on this forum (about page4) in 2007.
    They also had a shop in Lord Street (a photo of the front of this shop is in Paul Bolger's book "Postcard Photographers Pt3" on page31).

    The Milner safe factory is in the background.

    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    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?

    The Pearsons Book is still in progress. I spoke to the MD not too long ago who has been in and out of hospital with serious heart trouble. Other members of his family have also had serious personal problems too so I wished them all a speedy recovery.

    The website is still work in progress but I have some very hi res pictures of the whole area which I am unable to show due to copyright. Once the book is out, and copyright is lifted, I may be able to get permission to send you a hi-res picture of the factory.
