Galkoff’s and the Secret Life of Pembroke Place



Galkoff’s and the Secret Life of Pembroke Place is a partnership between Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and National Museums Liverpool.

The project has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and research is beginning to reveal stories of this vibrant street from the 19th century to the present.

 If further funding is secured the project will enable the historic tiled frontage of Galkoff’s butchers shop to be conserved and moved to the Museum of Liverpool. An archaeological investigation of the last surviving example of court housing will also take place.
A new display at the Museum of Liverpool, The Secret life of Pembroke Place will bring stories of this part of the city to life.
If any LHS members are actively undertaking research relevant to Pembroke Place we’d be delighted to work with you to explore and share the stories you’ve uncovered.
