Love boat

13 February 2013 by Kay

wooden rowing boat

Love blossomed for Marjorie and John Wilson in a rowing boat just like this one on Sefton Park’s boating lake during the 1940s.

John was a young medical student at Liverpool University and would revise whilst Marjorie rowed.

They got married when Marjorie was 21. John went on to have a successful medical career, becoming a consultant at Wirral Hospital.

This rowing boat is on display in The People’s Republic gallery at the Museum of Liverpool. It was used on Sefton Park Lake until the late 1970s. Who knows what other romances it may have witnessed?
