The building is just the other side of the road (Maddock Road) from the Mariners Home.
I did some research today and the building I photographed was the Andrew Gibson Home for Seamen's Widows. The building was donated for the purpose by a Liverpool shipping mangate. It was built in 1906 and dedicated by two sons in memory of their father. It cost £25,000 to build - which is a HUGE amount for 1906 (about £5 million based on todays prices and a conversion based on average earnings). Consider that at that date a typical church could be built for around £6000. The building itself is also HUGE. I walked around the front/ side / back today and was amazed at just how big it is
