    Spot on,sergeants and higher ranks were allowed to carry sticks tucked under their arms-or for pointing at traffic etc. They had rank stripes on the uniform much like the army uniforms of the day

    Hey Joe

    It's amazing that when you walk behind the Town Hall the world becomes all black and white....

    Fine work as ever, Joe. Enjoyed.

    Cheers

    Looking at some of my old Xmas pics and realised how much better Church St looked in 2008 without the sheds and stalls, This year there is not much colour in the lights and I don`t remember any nativity scenes in the lights.It mustn`t be P C

    Excellent views, Joe. I love those sloping streets and the view of the Mersey in the distance.

    Great those Joe. My wife's nan lived in Netherby street, another of those, in fact her dad was born there. They're pretty steep, you need a good handbrake and you can hear the trains rumbling underneath the house. Great view over the river from the bottom though.

    My aunt and uncle lived in South Hill Rd for many years,their house was right at the bottom end of the road with a garden and funnily enough their son Raymond Unsworth was in the merchant navy with Blue Funnel Line perhaps he got in the back of your cab at one time! He brought great presents home from his many trips visiting that little house down the 'south end" as my mother used to call it was a real treat.

    Who would have thought grass would surround the Florence Institute, we could have a thread on the greening of Liverpool. I know it takes time to get these restoration projects underway but a bit off grass does soften the often desolate feel while the work goes on.

    Loved that Queens Avenue photo what is Leather Lane looking like these days?

    Perhaps to get a cheaper basement? Less digging deep... or a high water table...

    ..or the slope of the land. Google Earth says the Yates St. is around 5 ft lower than Corn St. immediately behind the building shown.

    This google street view shows the slope at the end of the street opposite the church -

    The terrace is just part of cut and fill...

    I can see the reason for the terracing,but when you consider the steepness of the streets in Netherfield rd,etc? Is it just a different technique?

    A view from Sandhills Station,football pitches cover some old streets,Aspinall.Rockingham,Flinders and Lathom St. The white building is the old Grosvenor cinema now a Funeral Directors,alongside is the old U A B(Social security) building.


    Red brick building on the left is the old British American tobacco factory now apartments,the heights on Netherfield look as if they are having a makeover.
    Whenever I stand on Sandhills station my mind always wanders back to my childhood days as we never travelled more than 2 miles from the area till we started working.
