My grandfather's birth certificate lists his place of birth as Sailors Inn, St Helens. On a visit to the UK and specifically the island, I had the opportunity not only to see the Sailors, I was invited by the owners to tour the building. *
The St Helens page lists both the Sailors and the Vine, but indicates that you do not have a photo of the Sailors. You do, as it is the building to the left of The Vine, which you indicate was the first home of The Vine. *
