When: March-October, Wed-Sat
Where: 59 Rodney St, L1 9ER
I actually only picked up this leaflet because of the pretty retro design; before I go into any details, keep in mind this is only open March – October, Wed-Sat, so if you’re interested, get your skates on.
‘Maintained by the National Trust, step back in time to the 1950s and experience the sophisticated and bohemian life and travels of a society photographer in the heart of Liverpool when you step inside the former studio and home of Edward Chambré Hardman, and his talented wife Margaret. A unique time capsule of Liverpool life and creativity, packed with vintage treasures and fascinating artwork.’
I’m rushing to write this as there’s so much good stuff going on this week, so I don’t know a whole lot about it and am still absorbing the fact that Hardman St actually means something other than pizza. I’ll definitely attempt to squeeze the 90 minute tour in, though, as I’m a fan of all things fifties and such a perfectly preserved time capsule is every urban explorer’s dream.
