Many thanks to Ian Powers who captured the above row of big terraced houses that once stood on Market Street, to the left of St Lukes Church and now a large apartment block. Ian writes:
I photographed the ends of the block in 1999. I think it has now been demolished!
In the left hand hous was the Dentist’s surgery. (I think it was Kenworthy?).
In the right hand house which I believe was No.19 lived Dr Browne. He was my mother’s GP. By co-incidence, my mother spent the last years of her life there when the whole block was converted into to an old folk’s home.
I researched Dr Browne and found the following:
Dr Hablot John Moxon Browne. Born Feb 6 1869 died March 16th 1953. Registered as a Doctor 1 Aug 1892, he was sometime a house surgeon at Liverpool Royal Infirmary, then spent about 50 years as a doctor in Hoylake.
In Hoylake, Dr Browne was also an officer to the Children’s Day Nursery and was interested in paediatrics. Dr Browne’s father, also a doctor, helped set up the Liverpool ENT infirmary in Myrtle St. His grandfather was illustrator of Charles Dickens’ books under the pseudonym of “Phiz”.
I have checked some of the Medical Registers and have seen Dr Browne resident in No 19 Market St between 1911 and 1947.
How about you …anything to add?
