I am certain that the building was purpose-built as a Labour Exchange. I worked there as a Civil Servant for the Dept.of Employment. I also worked in the offices
at Bridge St, Birkenhead and Wilkinson St. Elles.Port . If you know those 2 bldgs
you will realise they were built to a similar design.
Some confusion may have arisen cos on old O.S. Maps the buiding later
called Hesketh Hall was noted as Education Institute.This actual wording on the
Map was placed on the site of the later Labour Exchange .I have copy of O.S.map
of 1909 or 1912 showing this. The building Hesketh Hall therefore started off
for recreational and educational use PROR TO Ist World War and PRIOR To the
formation of Royal British Legion in 1920,s. Maps can be confusing sometimes !

Hesketh Hall is opposite Andys Aquatics, it's the building that Andys Aquatics is in now that was the dole office many years ago.

My mum also said that she doesn't remember it being a temperance billiard hall.

Though St Mark's church hall in Grove Street became one she thinks.
