The Hall Line office in Water Street closed in the '60's

Hall line records are, I believe, held at the Merseyside Maritime Museum:

I remember Duggie Heggs very well, he sailed as 3rd. mate with my late Father.
I understand Duggie had a serious head injury while serving aboard a Hall Line vessel, which affected his eye sight, & resulted in him being unable to continue seagoing. However he was given a job in the Hall Line office in Liverpool,& became (Mr.Fix It )
