    az_gila, Here's a photo of Ogden's office block in Boundary Lane, about 3 miles from the Clarence. The factory has now closed and this is the only building that remains.

    Thanks for the picture. That building is a lot more fancy than the BAT building I worked in one summer. I don't remember a separate office building for BAT.

    Is the building still in use as an office for Ogdens? Is Ogdens even still around as a company?

    Pipe tobacco and Snuff is no longer produced at the Boundary Lane Everton factory, and I can't tell you what goes on at the office block.

    I took the photo recently because rumour had it that it was coming down. It is a listed building but in Liverpool that doesn't mean a thing to the Council. As we have witnessed over the years.

    * * * *
    Is there a thread that lists all the buildings/structures of special interest or architecture i.e. Sailors Home, Floating Roadway, etc. that have been pulled down?

    Sorry Pablo, can't help you there.

    Except to say it made way for the Nautical Training College when it moved from Oldham Street (Dickie Bond's catering college).

    But I don't when it was actually demolished. But I'll make inquiries.

    I'm trying to find photos to add to the family history we're doing for my husbands' Aunt Connies 88th birthday. Her grandfather was a manager at MacSymons Store, eventually in the Export Department. I see that you mention a photo which includes the store, but I don't know what I'm doing with this web site, so is there any way I can have a look at it without breaking the rules or incurring a huge fee?! If possible easy, idiot proof instructions please Thanks Helen Stanley

    I noticed a postcard for sale, a couple of years ago, Macsymons Buildings, next to the Sailors Home (another building in Church Street is advertised in one of the windows as 'Sale Rooms')

    The building shown is mentioned in the National Archives, concerning bomb damage:
    "Canning Place: correspondence, papers and drawings concerning war damage to premises of MacSymons Stores Ltd. 720KIR/2101 1940-54"

    Great photos, Joe.

    I don't know how I missed this thread.

    Here's the Clarence Dock chimneys, minutes before they were blown up (down?) in 1994.
