Liverpool, streets, liverpool-streets-l8-wellington-road-florence-institute-1890
Location: Liverpool

Category: streets

Address: The Florence Institute Wellington Road, Mill Street, Dingle, L.8 - 1890

  The Florence Institute was opened in 1889 "to promote the welfare of poor and working boys."

It was built by Sir Bernard Hall, a West Indies merchant, Alderman and former Mayor of Liverpool as a memorial and tribute to his daughter Florence who died in Paris at the age of 22.

It was the first building in Britain to be specifically constructed as a boys' youth club and continued to fulfil this function for a hundred years but, in the late 1980s during an economic recession, the funding dried up and ownership eventually transferred to the crown by whom it was allowed to fall into dilapidation. This was further exacerbated by a fire in 1999 which consumed the roof.

In 2004, the Liverpool Echo ran an article about the current plight of the Florrie which led to renewed charitable efforts and 3.9m lottery funding to restore it to its former glory. This was finally achieved in 2012 when the Florrie re-opened its doors.

On a personal note and being an ex-Belve boy, we always saw the Florrie with its building and facilities as quite a rich and spoilt venue and this is NOT because they won the 'South of Liverpool Youth Clubs 5-a-side Competition' which me and Nocker Weaver dreamed up and organised when I left the RAF in 1976 - and if you don't believe me, ask John Barratt, who was the Belve's Youth Leader at the time when he needed funds from the richer clubs around us. Those were the days, my friend!

  The thing about shops way back when is that even up to the 1950s and 60s they weren't self-service and they weren't big sheds. In fact, the whole shopping system was completely different then.

For a start, all the shops were small and all had a counter inside behind which were the staff and the goods and each kind of shop only sold its own type of product. So, the butcher sold meat, the bakery sold bread, cakes, pies and pasties, the green grocer sold fruit and vegetables and the 'shop' sold all the tinned and packet stuff except there weren't that many tins and packets. It was nearly all loose.

Every area had its own shops and mine was Park Road and the system went like this:-
they opened Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm and 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm, Wednesday was half day closing in the afternoon and no openings on Sundays.
Your Mother, or most likely you, went for the rations or the messages with a shopping bag (for life) everyday.
There weren't any fridges or freezers so you mostly bought what you needed for that day and if you forgot something and the shops were closed then you went to the 'corner shops' which were literally on most corners of the streets where you lived and each sort of specialised in what they sold and charged you more than the main shops because they stayed open until 10 pm. Where I lived there were 6 corner shops within 100 yards (90 odd metres).
