    Think you're right about the Brook House, but was it the Hatfield Hotel at that time?

    Almost certain it is the Brook House. Although there is a wall and railings where there should be none.

    They look magnificent.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Fantastic photograph, Kev. It is the Brook House, and you will see that the half-timbering, large mullioned bay window, and drainpipe conform to this more recent view in the Flickr group The Secret Life of Smithdown.

    Hatfield Hotel was the unopened hotel under the railway bridge. Its currently Fitwell's workwear and school wear retailers.

    Prior to that it had been Neta Homestores late 60s to 80s and my mother informed me that it was once the Conservative Club before that moved to purpose built premises nearby.

    The name of the Hatfield hotel was existant in mosaic tiling on the step - may still be I only tend to drive past these days.

    I have been led to understand that he Hatfield never opened due to dome restrictive covenant on the land between the Sefton Park Station railway bridge and Allerton road. Hence there has been a dearth of pubs in that area until the last two decades.

    Rumour has it Lord Salisbury was to blame for this covenant.
