Maghull – Frank Hornby’s Meccano Factory products – Liverpool on Wheels

This is the last of my postings regarding the quite excellent new exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool which is presently inaccessible due to our health crisis of course.

Anything to do with Hornby and the products of his Binns Road factory interest me as a Trustee of the Maghull based Frank Hornby Trust so of course the section of the Liverpool on Wheels exhibition was always going to draw me to it. Here are my photos:-

Like the Museum of Liverpool the Frank Hornby Experience exhibition (within Meadows Leisure Centre) in his home town of Maghull is also presently closed but hopefully both will be accessible when we come out the other side of this dreadful health crisis. I’m guessing that the period the Liverpool on Wheels exhibition will be open could be extended? It’s presently due to close on 1st November………

My congratulations to Sharon Brown (Curator of Land Transport at NML) and her colleagues for an excellent exhibition.

Museum of Liverpool – New ‘Liverpool on Wheels’ exhibition is a hit

I went to have a look at this new exhibition yesterday and want to congratulate Sharon Brown (NML’s Land Transport Curator) and her staff on a great piece of work. Here’s some photos from my visit:-

I’m going to write up specific postings about the Ford Escort MK1, Liverpool cycle manufacturers, Meccano and Vulcan cars of Southport which were also a part of this excellent exhibition.

I’m told that in the recent children’s half term holiday the Museum of Liverpool was packed out and I’m sure many visitors were there to see Liverpool on Wheels. By the way there’s an great book you can buy with the same title, I’ve had a copy for donkeys years:-

It was originally published in 1998 and I noticed that copies of it were for sale in the Museum Shop.

If you get the opportunity why not go and have a look………. it’s on until 1st November
