Bootle and its history wall

You know when you walk past something so often that it just becomes a part of the background well that recently happened to me until someone said ‘What’s that history wall all about in the Strand? It’s asking for people to share their memories of WW1 but there will be hardly anyone who can do that’.

Well the wall remains blank despite being on the shop unit for 6 months or more now but if you think about it anyone with memories of WW1 would have to be well over 100 years old now.

I posted on this site last year about Bootle’s WW1 Pop-Up shop/Museum (see link below) and my recollection is that the memory wall appeared around the same time.

I wonder what those who put the memory wall up intended?
