Footnotes

  • Provenance: Offered by a descendent of Herbert Shorrocks, 1883-1964, previously the owner of The Ardwick Roller Skating Rink and The Norbreck Hydro, both in Blackpool and founder and proprietor of The Shorrocks Palais Royal in Manchester. The Palais Royal opened around 1920 and was designed inside as an Oriental Palace with Chinese and Japanese furnishings bought at auction. The hotel offered regular dances and dance instruction to live music of-the-day. It closed in the late 1950s as victim of a compulsory purchase order for Manchester University. Shorrocks retired to Coed-y-Celyn Hall, a house big enough to house his collection of Asian Art where he pursued his passions of painting and of music.
