Three Stacks, Barnston

Some time in the early to mid 1940s, the Hardmans moved form their rented flat on Hope Street to Barnston Village on the Wirral. They bought Three Stacks at 21 Private Drive. This was perfectly situated as it was positioned mid way between their studios in Liverpool and Chester. By coincidence, the designer of Three Stacks was Francis Xavier Velarde - a friend of Edward Chambre Hardman's.

Here are some of the photographs the Hardmans took of the Wirral:
