    Copper House Row

    By elliem21,
    Hello all,
    I am new to the site and was wondering if anyone could answer my questions regarding Copper House Row. To my knowledge it was situated between(now) The Ship Inn and Sankey Valley community centre which was once used for park rangers as a sort of tuck shop.
    Thanks for reading

    I hope to get lots of replies!

    April Fool Day

    By Alan,
    When I was a little lad in the 1940s I used to try the April Fool stuff on my old granddad. He would shake his head and tell me that April Fool time finished at mid-day on 1st April and recite this rhyme:   "April Noddy's past and gone Tha's a Noddy not thinking on"   Anyone else recall this? What intrigues me now was that in his day Noddy must have been a Lancashire word for fool

    Historic Photographs and Information - Ernest Everett/George Street/Co

    By Siouxsiedee,
    I am working on an arts project which looks at the history of Ernest Everett and conscientious objection in St Helens (from a historical and non-political stand point) with Heart of Glass and Situations. We are looking for old photographs/images to support the project; old photographs or illustrations from early-mid 1900's of George Street quarter or more widely of the town and/or photographs or information on Ernest Everett. The photographs are needed for online communications for the local project called 'Refrain'. There is no budget to purchase the images but any use will be fully credited to the owner/ photographer. Any help with this request is very much appreciated! You can contact me directly if preferred at suzanne@heartofglass.org.uk
    Here is more info on the project for reference. We are also looking for participants to take part in this project as performers (no experience necessary) - so if you have a particular interest in world war one conscription history, the george street area, friends meeting house, the masonic hall etc then please get in touch to find out more.

    The Lady of the Highway Statue in Rainhill

    By artyfarty,
    This has been outside the gates of Loyola Hall as long as I can remember. I always thought it belonged to the Jesuits when they occupied the Hall,but they have vacated now of course and didn't take it with them. This may be because as I understand it,the statue was put there by American servicemen fro Burtonwood Air Base after one of their colleagues was badly injured(may have died) in a road accident outside the gates. So the question remains....who owns it ? Technically I suppose if the American story is true it belongs to the US.Anyone throw any light on the subject ?
