P Galkoffs kosher butcher shop is an iconic building fronted with highly decorative green tiles.
Originally a house, the P Galkoff business opened around 1908, and the amazing tiles were added in 1933. LSTM acquired the building in 2012. It is located just a few doors away from the last remaining area of Liverpool court housing (back-to-back houses standing around courtyards). This type of house was a prevalent type of working class home in mid19th century Liverpool.
