Liverpool Institute Desk

This wooden school desk comes from the Liverpool Institute for Boys. It was rescued from a skip by the vendor when he found out the desks were being thrown out and burnt.

The vendor attended the Institute in the same years as Paul McCartney and was in a couple of classes with him.

It’s a sturdy desk with a hinged top and an ink well hole.
