ries such as A Christmas Carol. People were heavily dressed to keep warm. Skirts reached the ground and everyone wore hats—even indoors. Children were smeared with goose fat and wore the same vest all winter. A chill could develop into something lethal in no time – people were terrified of pneumonia and influenza which killed countless thousands. Winters were certainly generally colder in the 19th century and technology was used to create private and public retreats from freezing conditions – conservatories and hot houses. The abolition of the glass tax in 1845 allied with new manufacturing processes such as float glass spurred the creation of increasingly sophisticated conservatories where it was sum-

Liverpool had several big park conservatories and one of the first was in the Botanic Gardens, Wavertree (pictured). The hot house was built in 1870, designed by town architect E R Robson. It was more than 290 feet long and 30 feet wide, soaring 43 feet high in the middle. Inside luxuriant sub-tropical plants including palms and ferns gave visitors a brief respite from the cold. In Victorian conservatories the temperature was kept high by hot water pipes fed by underground boilers. Humidity was kept high continued on page 20

www.liverpoollink.co.uk MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

There are still a few weeks to go...but, as this is our festive issue, there’s nothing like getting your greeting in first. So, from all of us here at The LINK, we hope you and yours have the Happiest Christmas ever. We hope also that, while you are having a fantastic time, you will spare a thought for those who will find Christmas is not such a happy time...families who have lost a loved one in the past year, people who, for whatever reason, find themselves on their own and those people who may have health or money worries. For some, Christmas can be the loneliest and most painful time of the year, especially if it marks a first without someone special. If you know of someone, who may not be looking forward to Christmas for one reason or another, then why not do something special on

South Liverpool F.C. can now concentrate on three league titles after all three senior teams were eliminated from their main cup competitions bur registered important league wins to stay in serious contention. The first team lost 2-0 to their main rivals Helsby in the League Cup and 1-0 to first division Marshalls in the Challenge Cup but could actually have won both games with a bit more luck in front of goal. However, seven successive wins in the league, including a 4-1 home win over Manor Athletic, a 4-1 away win over Ellesmere Port and a 3-0 home win over

www.liverpoollink.co.uk Upton AA, have lifted the team to the top of the league, two points clear of main rivals Helsby. The reserves were also ambushed in the Junior Cup, losing to St Helens Combination side Penlake despite taking the lead, then missing a penalty and then having a perfectly good goal disallowed. However, the team have retained their 100% league record and have games in hand over leaders Real Stadium. The team have registered several big wins recently, 7-0 against MEXOC and 4-1 against Childwall Athletic. The youth team have moved to within a point of leaders Maghull in the battle for the West Cheshire League Youth Division title, with

successive wins over other title contenders; 6-1 against Lower Breck Boys and the double over Finn Harps (4-2 away and 2-1 home). The only blot was defeat in the Youth Cup, on penalties to Maghull after a 2-2 draw after extra-time. The team will have played both games against most of their main rivals by Xmas and so the league title race should be clear by then. The club now has teams from under-7s to open age with most of the teams playing in the Belle Vale Junior League at the superb Caldway Drive facilities. A very special mention must go to the under-11s, managed by Steve Jones, who lost recently - their first defeat in their four year history!

www.liverpoollink.co.uk WINTER WARMERS by Stephen Guy continued from page 1

excellent sport facilities in south Liverpool Marsh Sports and Dance facilities welcome you to join in with their year round activity programmes

by using heated open water tanks or throwing water on to the hot pipes. Plants attracted insect pests which were eradicated using dangerous chemical sprays including arsenic. Unfortunately the gardeners – working in confined conditions – were often poisoned as well. A few years after being built the Botanic Gardens conservatory became the main centre for producing Liverpool’s bedding and display

plants. Specimens were also provided for the university and schools. The hot house was refurbished and new boilers installed just before the First World War. The gardens declined between the wars because of pollution and the economic depression. The conservatory was destroyed by German bombs in November 1940 and never rebuilt. However, the Botanic Gardens remain a pleasant oasis off busy Edge Lane. • Learn more about the history of Liverpool at the new Museum of Liverpool, Pier Head, open 10 am to 5 pm every day, admission free.

Open to the public, facilities include:  

Astro pitches Sports hall

 

Fitness gym Exercise classes

After School Activities for Children We pride ourselves on a fun, quality and safe environment catering for ages from 5-14 years. For our After School Activites choose from:
