Emma Holt used this as her office after her father died in 1896. From here she helped to run Liverpool University, an area of the District Nursing Association, and many other health charities.
In those days there was no National Health Service. There was much poverty in Liverpool, and Emma had been brought up to believe that it was the family’s responsibility to use its wealth for the good of the community.
