Address: Turners Home Dingle Lane, Dingle, L.8 - 1884

  The building of the home was completed in 1884 and was designed by Alfred Waterhouse. It was built for Mrs Anne Turner as a memorial to her recently deceased husband and son. Her husband was Charles Turner, a Liverpool merchant who originated from Yorkshire. He had been chairman of Liverpool Dock Board, and a Member of Parliament. Charles Turner died in 1875, followed by his son five years later. The first full title of the home was “The Turner Memorial Home of Rest for Chronic Sufferers”.

Today (2013), the home is dual-registered as a residential and a nursing facility. In addition to medical and nursing care, chiropody, dental care, an optician's service, and hairdressing are provided. Parts of the main building continue to be used for communal activities, including dining, and games such as pool and snooker. Religious services are held twice a week in the chapel.

  As described in "Smith's Strangers Guide to Liverpool" in the year 1843

PUBLIC PARKS.

The construction of Public Parks in the neighbourhood of the town was agitated in the town council for a considerable period, and a committee was chosen to make the necessary arrangements; but the difficulty of procuring a proper situation, and the diversity of opinion as to its utility, have for the present caused the project to be laid aside. Since the plan was relinquished, Richard Vaughan Yates, Esq., has in the most public-spirited manner, purchased, at an expense of £47,000, from the Earl of Sefton, forty-three acres of land in the vicinity of the Dingle, Toxteth Park, two-thirds of which are to be immediately converted into a public park, and the remainder is to be appropriated as sites for villas. The Earl of Sefton has generously contributed £1000 towards the expense of laying out the grounds.

The property is delightfully situated; and the inhabitants of Liverpool will thus, through the munificence of Mr. Yates, in a short time, enjoy all the advantages of a public park, without any expenditure of the public money.

The park was a private venture and was financed by the sale of building plots around the park. Yates chose Joseph Paxton who was head gardener to the Duke of Devonshire to design the park, hence one of the boundaries of villas being Devonshire Road.

The park opened in 1842 but was not finished until 1845.

Address: The Royal Bank Building Dale Street, Centre-Town, L.2 - 1840

  As described in "Smith's Strangers Guide to Liverpool" in the year 1843

THE ROYAL BANK, AND BUILDINGS. This extensive and magnificent range of buildings (situated at the west end of Dale-street,) was lately erected by the proprietors of the Royal Bank, from the plans of Samuel Rowland, Esq. The ground story is rusticated, and the centre part is lighted by a range of segment-headed windows. The wings, which are divided from the centre by two archways, are decorated with palladium windows of the Doric order. A facia and cornice finishes the ground story, and supports a range of lofty columns and pilasters of the Corinthian order. The centre of the upper part of the building consists of eight three-quarter columns, and two stories of windows and a string course; the wings, and the spaces over the arches, have two stories of palladium windows, three of the lower story of the Ionic order, with enriched friezes, decorated with elaborate and beautiful foliage. The entablature of the Corinthian order, in its full proportions and ornaments, is continued along the entire front of the building, and is surmounted by a balustrade, in the centre of which a pedestal supports the Royal Arms, giving an appropriate finish to the upper part of the edifice.

At the end of the enclosure is the Bank itself, which is of chaste and elegant design. Four well proportioned fluted Doric columns support a plain but bold cornice, on which rest four fluted Ionic columns, of more slender proportions, finished with a rich entablature and a pediment. The lintels of the side doors are handsomely ornamented by carved-work, and the sides and angles of the building are further improved by pilasters corresponding with the rest of the design.

The interior of the Bank, in elegance, almost surpasses the exterior. The ceiling is panelled with gilded mouldings, and supported by columns of a composition resembling marble.

The other parts of this extensive range of building are occupied by private offices,
