On a Sunday afternoon in 1906, two determined men hurried down the platform for the London train in Lime Street station. One was carrying a leather holdall with the whole of Saturday’s takings from Lewis's – Liverpool’s largest department store. They stayed overnight in a London hotel and the next morning were waiting outside a Solicitor’s office for it to open.
The cause of this drama was that land on the north side of Speke Road was up for sale and there was at least one other interested party. This rival, it was learned on the Saturday afternoon, intended to complete the purchase at 10.00am on the Monday. At that time purchases had to be in cash. The banks were closed, so no cash was available. All seemed lost. It was then that Lewis Cohen offered to lend them all of Lewis's Saturday’s takings to provide the cash. The purchase was completed just ahead of the rival.
