Liverpool History Society

Supports The Following


Blacklers Department Store, Elliot Street, Great Charlotte Street. Now a J D Wetherspoons public house named The Richard John Blackler. Lots of photographs on the interior walls tell the story of Blacklers in Liverpool and others tell the history of the docks, the slave trade and Liverpool’s connection. Please click on the link below the photo for more information.



Galkoff’s and the Secret Life of Pembroke Place



Galkoff’s and the Secret Life of Pembroke Place is a partnership between Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and National Museums Liverpool.

The project has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and research is beginning to reveal stories of this vibrant street from the 19th century to the present.

 If further funding is secured the project will enable the historic tiled frontage of Galkoff’s butchers shop to be conserved and moved to the Museum of Liverpool. An archaeological investigation of the last surviving example of court housing will also take place.
A new display at the Museum of Liverpool, The Secret life of Pembroke Place will bring stories of this part of the city to life.
If any LHS members are actively undertaking research relevant to Pembroke Place we’d be delighted to work with you to explore and share the stories you’ve uncovered.
