The Florence Institute, Mill Street
The Florence Institute, Mill Street
The Florence Institute, Mill Street was built by Sir Bernard Hall, (1812-1890), a West Indies merchant, Alderman and former Mayor of Liverpool (1879/80). His daughter, Florence, died tragically at the age of 22 and her father built this boy’s club as a memorial to her, at his sole expense, as a focal point for the local youth who lived in the tough dock-side area of Liverpool. Opening in 1890, for a hundred years "The Florrie" as it is affectionately known by locals, served the young working and unemployed youth of the area, giving them a centre for recreation, opening in 1890 but now, sadly, just a shell despite pleas for funding by "The Friends of the Florrie".
