Sefton House, Sefton Park

Where was   Sefton House, Sefton Park — I have been told it stood within Greenbank Park — can you verify ?

I usually find these things out myself but the Library research place is awkward to get to and not as easy-going as it was.

Thanks again

48 Renshaw Street


I would need all information’s I can get about the long red brick stone building Renshaw Street 48 (where the biennale was).

I will do my bachelor work about this building but I couldn’t find any information’s.

It also would help if you could say me where I can find information’s or where I shell go to ask.

Thx a lot for your help.

Mayfair Hotel in Park Lane

Keanes pub, Park Lane. Demolished in the 1980's

Hi Rob,

I have a superb painting of the Mayfair Hotel in Park Lane 1950 — there is a sub-title called Cain’s Folly. I would like to know if this building is still standing (suspect not —its too nice) and why was it called Cain’s Folly.

Many Thanks
