    Cool pics of lime st, George.

    I'm more interested in the northern line station as I get the train along there to work and can see little signs that they were once alot grander than todays simple affairs

    Well a I don't have an Anorak, I wouldn't know the difference between trains as they look the same at both ends to me.


    If I was stuck out in the wilds I wouldn't know if they were coming or going.

    Sorry, I meant the stations. Even I'm not a train spotter, stations do bring a smile to me face though

    U've probably seen this pic before, but since u gave me a link to LOR stuff, I'll post this

    More to follow, but for now include some old emergency vehicles, passengers coming off the upper floor of the ferry on the raised gangway (mentioned on another thread on here) and this one below of St. Johns beacon under construction.

    The foundation stone is laid in Edge Lane to the new tram works (later adapted to bus works) This done by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Bowring (of Bowring Park and Bowring Park Road fame) - 1926.

    Dixie Deans Everton parade the cup along Lime st in 1933, driven by the same stagecoach driver who did it for them in 1906. 1933 saw the first numbers on their backs, Everton 1-11 and Man City 12-22. Everton won 3-0.

    Something that unusually didn't take off was the mail service using trams as mobile post boxes.

    It would seem that the tenements concept is still alive and kicking - 21st Century style with this new 'Central Gardens' development in the city centre.

    Looks like the inside of a prison .

    I guess it's doesn't really matter what it looks like, as long as they're decent enough. Do u think they'll ever have the community spirt of the old places ?

    The Albany has an interior similar to this, very much like the inside of the Seaman's mission which Colin Wilkinson posted up. Yes, it is like a prison and very claustrophobic. With no central void or square as we called it to play in, and probably nobody seeing much of it each other because of it, I doubt the old community spirit will reappear here or anywhere else shortly but that's probably just a sign of the times too.

    Agree with this last bit. It's the Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and I can't image us having street parties like those in the pics I posted from 1977. It's a shame but I can't really say much coz I never talk to my neighbours other than to say hello

    Seaman's mission's interior - if we decided to build it again today, sadly that's what it would look like inside.

    There certainly isn't. I wonder if you can hear through the walls? I live in an old apartment building 1909 I think so thick walls, you cannot hear from one to another. They were originally one apartment per floor ,now two one bedroomed and two studios (single room) per floor.

    I never thought i'd see Colliers, London Road looking like this. Dragged here to be kitted out for my new school uniform every August. Sure was embarrassing when you're going on 16

    I remember Colliers, think I got some school uniform there. Did it have like a wooden staircase in the middle? Are there any old pictures of the inside that you know off Ged?

    I remember they has polished wooden drawers with the socks and undies in them, like Grace Borthers. They also had that tubular payment system where it went up the pipes to the offices above and you had to wait for you change. You wouldn't be arsed if it was 1d.
