Sunshine on the Mersey
I had a very interesting visit to Merseyside Maritime Museum and Archives yesterday to research some articles and my latest book, Tracing Your Lancashire Ancestors. It was blazingly hot and sunny, considering it is still only April. On my way back to the station I noticed St George’s Hall was open, so I popped inside for a quick look. The concert hall is very impressive, although unfortunately I wasn’t lucky enough to see its famous Minton floor tiles. I shall have to pop back for another visit sometime.
