    Lots of digging going on. End of the road between Barclays bank and the old cinema site is dug up and a lot of the central reservation is being changed.

    Hope it's not where they say they will dig up for the proposed extention. It's going to look great - a 1000 year-old church with a modern conservatory.

    I've had quite a few shakey Scouse credentials, especially after pub crawls along County Road.
    I'm a scouser and proud of it, but see nothing wrong in endowing some lesser mortals with the...

    I came out of the side exit of Marks, turned right towards Church St and noticed a memorial stone set in the pavement. Didn't have a camera for a photo, but if I remember it was dedicated to a lady...

    I think I've seen that photo before. Is it Summerseat, off Scotland Rd?

    The road is still there, but new houses.

    Hi Waterways

    That actually makes sense. Pity we couldn't talk the two factions into actually sharing a stadium.

    Football apart, it would improve transport across the area. The current system is...

    We used to get to the till and pack the shopping into the supermarket's used cardboard boxes - ideal for loading into the car. They used to store them by the tills, but stopped doing them.

    Charabanc outing to Blackpool 1920's

    Found this old photo of my grandad on an outing to Blackpool. Think it's the 1920's from the age of his son. He's at the back with his arm out of the window. How much would 5/- in 1920's be worth...

    Thanks for the link Ged. One of the replies said it was part of a perimeter defence ring. Still think Garston had something to do with it :rolleyes:
  17. WW2 pillbox on corner of Springwood Ave / Woolton Rd

    I've driven past it many times over the years and often wondered why it was put there. Anyone know why? Wasn't Garston on our side in the war :rolleyes:

    Are there many more of them in the area?

    I think the Black Horse, next to Walton church, had a men-only bar - on the right as you went through the main door. We used to go into the back bar, along with the monks in brown robes (:shock:).

    I remember that men-only bar - going through front entrance, turn left and go through main bar into a smaller men-only one. Never really went there though.

    The Astoria is no more. I went to the Victory in the late 1950's, but it had disappeared by the 1970's. Don't remember the Queens. The Princess turned into a bingo hall in the 1970's. I believe they...

    A footbridge, provided it "blended in with the area", would be a better proposal, in my opinion. I'm sure the money could be found (a grant, or even as you suggest alongside a local collection) as...
