Galkoffs & The secret history of Pembroke Place

(National Museums Liverpool)


P Galkoffs kosher butcher shop is an iconic building fronted with highly decorative green tiles.


Originally a house, the P Galkoff business opened around 1908, and the amazing tiles were added in 1933. LSTM acquired the building in 2012. It is located just a few doors away from the last remaining area of Liverpool court housing (back-to-back houses standing around courtyards). This type of house  was a prevalent type of working class home in mid19th century Liverpool. 

I led team of volunteers investigating historic street directories to prroduce a report that would go into the Stage II Heritage Lottery Fund Bid.  

The big was sucessful and the project secured £291,300 towards its aims.
