Name of creator
Hubert Norbury was born in 1897 in Liverpool, England to Frank Herbert Norbury (1871-1965) and Flores Ethel Fall (1872-1953). Frank was born in Liverpool and after secondary school attended the Liverpool City School of Art, the Lambeth Model School, and the School of Art, Architecture, and Applied Art at the University of Liverpool. From 1893 to 1900 Norbury taught at the University of Liverpool, and from 1900 to 1914 had a private carving practice. On 10 June 1896 Norbury married Fall, who was also from Liverpool, and was a pianist and composer. Together they had two children, Hubert and Esma.
