(now known as the Britannia Adelphi Hotel)
Laurel and Hardy came to Liverpool on all
three post-war stage tours. The first was 1947, when they
packed out the
Liverpool Empire at each and every show, with hundreds more being
turned away. They returned in 1952, but all the exhuberance
of the first visit was absent, and they scarcely made the newspapers.
On the third visit, 1953, Laurel & Hardy
were described in reviews as being 'dated.' They stayed at the Aldelphi
Hotel, in Lime Street, on each occasion.
