NOTES: In the early 1840s Liverpool was looking to create a school for pauper juveniles away from the heart of the city where they could be trained for useful occupations - the boys for various trades and the girls for domestic service ÔÇô and to keep them from the bad influences of the streets or the adult workhouse. ElmesÔÇÖs design was unsuccessful and the Liverpool Industrial Schools (as it was called) was built between 1843-1845 on Westminster Road, Kirkdale, to the designs of Lockwood & Allom, opening on 1 May 1845.
