The Unofficial Liverpool F.C. Museum

There are many of us who share the same passion for the history of Liverpool F.C. On Facebook I try to help out with Jim and Jeff with posting interesting articles or stories about Liverpool F.C.. Now the Unofficial Liverpool F.C. Museum is a Facebook page you need to click on the “Like” button to be able to follow and get updates. You will find this Facebook page here.

What you find on the Facebook-pages are:
Banners, letters, badges, Robbie Fowler nose bandages, or bits of the old stadium.
If you have any old Liverpool artifacts get on here and share with other Red history enthusiasts like myself… It is like a virtual museum for anything that evokes memories of the clubs past. Big or small, ordinary and extraordinary. If it means something special to you as a Red… share it on here.
Housekeeping notes:
Please let users of the page know in whose possession the item resides.
Please do not post or re-post images of items without permission from their owners.
Thanks

  1. I am the great grandson of Tom Watson (not the only). My Grandmother Elizabeth Wnnifred Watson married George Wooldridge (my maternal Grandfather). My Grand mother gave me a cap that belonged to her father about 40 yrs. ago and have been working on the origin and any value to the team in this cap.

    • Hi Jimmy,

      Welcome to the website, and what an exciting family member you have from the past! I will do my best to try to help you with any questions you might have regarding Tom. I have added numerous articles about him, and also a page just with sketches from old newspapers. It would be great if you could share some stories, and also if you want I can add an image of the cap to the website.

      Best regards,

      Kjell

  2. Although I live in New Zealand I am directly related to both Edwin and Arthur Berry through my mother. My mother was one of Arthur’s twin daughters, although we now live in New Zealand and my mother will be 87 next month.

    Arthur married my grandmother – Beryl late in life, when he was 37, and I believe my mother and her twin sister were his only children. Unfortunately, the marriage ended in divorce, possibly due to the effects of Arthur having been through WWI and having been gassed, which meant an end to any active sports. After the divorce and the onset of WWII, my mother and her sister never saw Arthur again, until they read of his death in a Liverpool paper. I wasn’t aware of how strong Edwin and Arthur’s connection to Liverpool was. Both Arthur’s Olympic gold medals were eventually bought by the Everton club and are now in their museum.

    Best Regards Rick

    • Hi Richard,

      Thanks for your post and welcome to this website. I am happy you found it. Over the years many family members of old players have contacted me. I am so fascinated with all the stories.

      Edwin and Arthur Berry played a massive role in the early years of LFC. Edwin was perhaps the person that saved the club from going under around 1903/1904, and he was soon after elected Chairman of the club.

      I have added loads of articles of them:
      More about Arthur you can find through this link: http://kjellhanssen.com/tag/arthur-berry/
      More about Edwin you can find through this link: http://kjellhanssen.com/tag/edwin-berry/

      There is also a third Berry in the early part of LFC`s history – an Albert Edward Berry. Is he related, do you know?

      Regards,

      Kjell
