aka Brian Epstein’s Birthplace
Liverpool L1 2TZ

It was at a private nursing home at this address that Queenie and Harry Epstein introduced their son, Brian Samuel, to the world, on 19th September 1945. He was their first of two sons. His brother, Clive would follow 22 months later.

What a tragedy that such a brilliant  young man only lived for 27 years.

It was a joyous moment for the parents, and Brian was born on Yom Kippur, (the Jewish Day of Atonement), a memorable day in their calendar.

The nursing home was considered the top of its class in Liverpool, in fact, the equivalent of the esteemed Harley Street in London. This building now belongs to the John Moores University.
