  1. Hello Ian,

    I have no idea as to whether they have a value, possibly not as I do not know many Liverpool empheria collectors. As you may know James Picton was a well known Liverpool Historian and Horsfall was a landowner in the city.

    I would suspect they would be of interest to members of the Liverpool History Society, but I do not know of any who are involved in Architectural research.

    I would be interested to know where you managed to obtain them as they probably give a fascinating insight into mid Victorian Liverpool`s institutions.

  2. Hi Ian and Rob,

    I’m really interested in the architecture of Liverpool as part of the urban landscape, and especially the work of Picton.

    If you’re thinking of selling them I’d be interested, or if you’d like any help making them more widely available (scanning and posting online, transcribing them etc) then I’d love to help.

    What kind of topics do they cover?
