    The car in the photo has raised side-lights.
    Also called the Rover 2500 (I think).

    There are a couple of suggestions for the name of the bar in that thread, but they don't ring a bell with me.
    Interesting to see my photos again. :)

    All I saw yesterday was the binmen!

    However, a fortnight ago, somebody smelling of drink asked to look at my photos.
    I just knew he wanted to grab my camera.

    As far as the Ordnance Survey maps are concerned the earliest I've seen after the war are from the late 1940s.
    They're in the LRO, and are detailed enough to show air-raid shelters.

    Hi, Lelly.
    Not unusual for photos to have a postcard back.
    It was just one of the options in those days.

    As Marky says here, there was St Paul's Methodist Church in Greenfield Road.
    St Paul's in Derby Lane has nothing to do with this thread.

    There's some great photos in this thread. :handclap:
    From all different periods.
    I snapped it in the 1980s (I think) when it was occupied by students, but I can't find them at the moment.

    The only Victor Value I was aware of was the one in West Derby - and only because it used to be a cinema (then Tesco).
    I took a photo of it in 1984, and it was Victor Value then.

    It's the one at Limekiln Lane that's Listed, although they both seem in the same condition to me.
