This incredible display shows in an immediate and spectacular manner, the history of one of Liverpool’s oldest but littlest-known companies, Try & Lilly Ltd.

When any students’ protests, whether protesting about Vietnam or any other aspect of “The Establishment”, might have needed police regulation in 1968, the police headgear would have no doubt been made in the Fabric District where it has been for a hundred years

Try & Lilly Ltd. continue to make the world’s caps and helmets at 95 Kempston St, Liverpool L3 8HE. Curated with fashion businesswoman and MA Fashion, Innovation and Realisation student at LJMU, Margaret Appleby, this incredible display shows in an immediate and spectacular manner, the history of one of Liverpool’s oldest but littlest-known companies.
