Post box from Fazakerley Cottage Homes



This child-sized post box was specially made for the children at Fazakerley Cottage Homes to post their letters and cards. The Homes opened in 1889 and had 21 separate cottages for 584 children. On the site there were also schools, a swimming pool, farm buildings and gardens. When the Cottage Homes closed in 1964 the special post box was rescued by a member of the Post Office staff and kindly donated to Liverpool Museums.
