Feed Back; Flash back.RE: Hostel of Hope, Bedford St, Liverpool.
Do any ECHO readers have any knowledge of this building, which I know was in use around 1920 and beyond. I do not know when it opened but it was still there around 1942.
I am trying to find out who ran it-was it run by a charity or perhaps the council - and who holds the records of it?
I have been in contact with the Central Library who were very helpful, but who cannot help me over this. I know "adoptions" were made by agreement through the Hostel of Hope in 1920 and this is the area in which I am interested.
Any help would be appreciated.

I LOVE reading your People's Archive memories, looking at the pictures in the hope of spotting either myself or someone I remember.
A couple of years back I did appear, much to my surprise, on a school photograph sent in by a friend who I hadn't seen in more than 30 years. I phoned her and we were able to arrange to meet up - it made my month, if not my year!
I wondered if the ECHO had considered doing an extra memories feature on those people who get in contact again through your columns.
I think it would be interesting to see how many reunions there are as I am sure you are responsible for bringing hundreds of people together again who might otherwise have lost touch for the rest of their lives. Mrs M. Andrews, L9
MY son is currently enjoying watching the repeats of Catchphrase Noun 1. catchphrase - a phrase that has become a catchword
phrase - an expression consisting of one or more words forming a grammatical constituent of a sentence on one of the digital channels, but I always tell him that it is nowhere near as good or as funny as the original with Roy Walker
Roy Simon Walker (born 31 July 1940 in Belfast, Northern Ireland) is a British television personality & Comedian, who has worked for many years .
It made me smile, then, to see your homage to the great man (ECHO Flashback, April 28). I can't understand why those episodes aren't being shown again, rather than the ones with a host who I don't even recognise.
There's only one real Catchphrase supremo su·pre·mo

One who is highest in authority or command, as of an organization.
