Default Aintree Institute

The Beatles played 31 times at the Aintree Institute, between January 1961 and January 1962. More than at The Tower in New Brighton.



Below: The Beatles at the Aintree Institute. Notice they are right up to the stage watching, not dancing.




The demolition of the Aintree Institute in 2006 - Liverpool continues to self-destruct, with an apparent hatred of its own past:


The site is now unused waste ground:


During the WW2 black people were prohibited from the hall. Drunken black American soldiers were involved in a shooting and stabbing incident.

No. The Aintree iron was a clothes pressing iron made by a company called Aintree.

There is no need for it as these places could still perform very useful community services.

"The demolition of the Aintree Institute in 2006 - Liverpool continues to self-destruct, with an apparent hatred of its own past"

The two times I have been in Liverpool which I refer to as "Pool of Liver"
I was struck by not only the lack to preserve Beatles historic sites as such but the lack to preserve the Liverpool in general but cities to grow and change but it's still a shame that cities in Europe tends to think otherwise.

That said Liverpool still has a varied flavor throughout the city to make it one of a kind.

That's a damn crying shame. Another Beatles' venue is now history.

Carl Jung referred to Liverpool as the "Pool of Life", never having been there.

Just a question was the Aintree institute originally a church? It looks like it might have been.
