    Walked the Trans-Pennine Way from Broadgreen to Walton Vale yesterday. At Hartley`s Jam Factory there is a multi-arched bridge over the trail, which carries a path through to Long Lane. I think it`s...

    I went on a tour of the tunnel with a group from the Friends of Williamson Tunnels last year. Jolly good, we had to take torches and I don`t think it was quite as wet at that time - there were planks...

    Nice photo, Marky. The `L & M R` is presumably the `Liverpool & Manchester Railway`. The display can be reached by going up Copperas Hill as far as the junction with Seymour Street and Russell...

    Viewed the wheels today - they are set into a paved area, half of each wheel is above ground, the other half presumably is below the surface. The wheels are painted with a black gloss, with the...

    Thanks for the comments re the ` 5 Jolly Gremlins` snack/ice cream bar. Feel sure it was near that corner though, if not on the corner itself. Maybe a check on a street directory of the late 1940s...

    Thank you for the info - perhaps the family moved in soon after, or maybe the lady was a relation/in-law of the householder - I suppose I`ll never know now...

    Apropos of not a lot, just a bit of scene-setting at the time: my mother was a young unmarried woman of almost 25 at the time. One of her friends, Mona Crane, used to live not far from Wolverton...

    Without checking the links provided (thanks) I wonder if the listing applies to the exterior structure only? If it also covers the interior someone hasn`t taken much notice - can`t believe permission...

    LIVER BUILDING

    Popped into the Liver Building today - was curious to see what they had done to the interior which had been `refurbished` a few years ago, when the cafe closed (it hasn`t been re-opened). The cafe...

    Does anyone recall a snack/milk bar called ` 5 Jolly Gremlins`, on the corner of West Derby Road/Belmont Road? I think it was `5`,could have been 3 or 4 perhaps. Going back to the 1950s now.

    Thanks for that, thought it was around that area - wonder if any photos exist showing that old area of St Os Street, also when the houses that were there were demolished.

    Thanks for that, although the names don`t ring any bells: I think maybe I was trying to work out where 72 St Oswald Street would be if the properties were still standing. No idea how I came to place...

    Mart, I`m blowed if I can find my note of the street concerned - I believe it was almost opposite Macqueen Street. They lived also at 72 St Oswald Street at one time, I think that was the address at...

    Speke Road Gardens: did anyone know a girl who lived there by the name of Anastasia Grimes? She was around 17 in 1957, I think, and worked at Dunlop Speke.
