    Default Chapel st.

    Anyone remember Chapel st. before the "Atlantic Tower" was built? I can vaguely remember the big warehouse,next to it,with "Henry Diaper",on it,only because someone told me it was American,for a nappy!( obviously made an impression!)

    Am I correct in remembering that a whole lot of bodies had to be moved from the Atlantic Tower site, which had, long before, originally formed part of St. Nick's churchyard?

    I imagine the warehouses must have been built on top of them without cellars to disturb them..

    Going on past experience,like st. Oswalds in Old Swan,and the "White city" dog track, they probably didn't bother,and built over them!
