Så er Penny Lane i farezonen

Penny Lane, made famous by The Beatles, ‘in danger of being renamed’ if alleged slavery link proven, official says

One of the road’s signs was defaced on Friday with the word “RACIST” spray-painted next to it in an apparent reference to James Penny, a Liverpool-based slave trader whom the BBC says defended the practice during a parliamentary inquiry in the late 1700s.

But the city’s International Slavery Museum tells Sky News that claims of Penny Lane being named after the James Penny are “not conclusive.”
