I am a member of the Liverpool History Society, and am attempting to ascertain the validity of whether the first "Penny- farthing cycle" in the North West, was built in Gateacre/Woolton by a George Blundell b 9/10/1863 -d 2/02/1936 - Cycle maker circa 1879/1925.
I also know that he later made cycles in Prince Alfred Road, Wavertree.
I once had a testimonial to this feat, though sadly, now it is lost.
I would appreciate any information at all, nomatter how small, thank you in advance, Bill Blundell
