    Lovely, Joe.

    Brings back memories for me, that view down Chapel Street, as I worked in that branch of Martin's Bank in the summer of 1968. I remember walking down the street and someone said Kennedy had been shot. I thought it was a joke meaning John F. Kennedy but of course it was his brother Robert F. Kennedy, shot by Sirhan Sirhan while campaigning in California.

    Sandhills Lane, many a Tate and Lyle horse slipped on the cobbles and snow on here bringing the sugar and molasses up from the docks.
    I have mentioned before, as children we would follow the wagons, and with a knife slit the sacks at the back and collect the brown sugar as it poured down into our jerseys then home to make toffee apples. The carter was unaware as he couldn`t see us over the sacks

    The compressed raw sugar lumps were known as "toagie"
    Little did I know when I did the same on the sugar carts and Molasses lorries that I'd spend 40 years working for Mr Cube.

    Dale Street,Spar shop on the right was once a bank
    It was the Midland Bank - I had to open my first account there 'cos when I turned eighteen my Company (in Exchange Bldgs) went on to pay me monthly, by cheque instead of cash in hand, weekly.
    btw what was the building on the left, forehand - I've forgotten what it was
    If a man speaks in the forest and no woman hears him, is he still wrong ?

    St Georges Plateau.. Lime Street..

    Where my mam as a child while playing here was taken to safety during the blitz over Liverpool..
    My mam was born and raised on Gerard Street.. which was just behind the Wellington Column in the pic..
    this area was my mams playground as a little girl....(and mine as a boy as well..)

    ...one night during an air raid a policeman took his black tunic off and threw it over my mam
    and carried her away to safety... my mam once told me this years ago..
    she was wearing a light dress or something, which is why the policeman did what he did...

    Remembering my dad, who was shot in the war and came home..
    remembering my grandad, who's was torpedoed during the war on board The Empire Endurance.. and came home..

    And remembering all the brave men and women that fought for me during the wars and never came home..

    Thank you...

    Very fine, Gerard. The frieze on the war memorial is chilling in a way in showing the automaton-like marching of the soldiers. Ordinary men all caught up in a world-changing event. Good photo, Gerard! Bravo.

    Great pic. The frieze was sculptured by Herbert Tyson Smith who depicts himself and family in it (on the Lime st side). He was also responsible for the architect and hod carrier statues which stood over Gerard Gardens where Gerard and myself lived.

    For those looking for Herbet Tyson Smith on the other side of the monument...he's about 3 from the right on the other side...

    Great to see the photograph of Penrhyn Street decorated for the opening of the cathedral of Christ the King. Not sure if you have posted this image here before. It's the first time I have seen it at least.

    Pretty good,Joseph...but alas yer still have not caught that ambience of a rainy day.

    Bold street,Castle street and around this area for the rain type pics or any cafe,restaurants with outside canopy for people having a cup of coffee underneath.

    Look at this one its unique,uncluttered with a touch of stonework in the bargain...bit dark but it works
