Does anyone please remember or indeed have any photos of what I know as Perrin Hall. This set of corrugated steel roofed building, some painted red in colour, was surrounded by a metal fence and was I beleive a community hall. It stood on the corner of Naylor Road and Tollenache Road, almost facing Lansdowne Road, and was opposite to the wall surrounding St James fever hospital, now a housing estate. My mum worked there serving teas and buns to troops during the dark days of World War Two. The old demolished hall now has sheltered senior residential properties on the site. Your help would be much appreciated. Many Thanks. Reno

I'm not familiar with the building but going by the descriptions given of where it was, could be red area on maps, 1894 and 1938.

It could have been named after Joseph Perrin, one of the Commissioners of Birkenhead, a licenced publican and contractor. He was the Publican of the Wheat Sheaf Hotel, corporation Rd.

The L shaped building at the top of egan road, not sure that perrin hall was L shaped though. You're right about Joseph Perrin.

The L shaped building, Tollemach Rd, Mercer Rd, Egan Rd,
1938 Kelly's Directory was St James Hall.

When did the name change take place?

The "L" shaped building on the corner, as mentioned by others, is the one . My nan lived at 214 Lansdowne Road (first house in from Tollemache Rd) from 1937 to the mid 60's. My mum used to tell me about visiting the soup kitchen in the Perrin Hall during the war. I can clearly remember the red building in the late 50's early 60's, passed it often and my uncle's best mate lived directly opposite.

During WW2 employees of the VK and Auto Tickets were ferried by bus to Perrin Hall and volunteers provided a cooked meal between 12 and 1pm. Dances were also organised in the evenings which were very popular.Jimmy 3
