    when I was a kid, the Landlord of the Winslow Hotel in Goodison Road was Norman Greenhalgh, he used to play for Everton, His son was David.
    Think he took over the Bromborough Hotel, later.
    Remember riding our bikes around the snooker tables upstairs! [circa 1956?]

    Also nice memories of the Clock in Richmond Row, I worked in Whitneys, the Ford Garage in Scotland Road,with Billy Roberts, his Mum and Dad had the Clock.

    Lunchtime at Whitneys consisted of chips from the chippy and a visit to the Ship? next door to the garage! [late 60`s]

    Hi Jo,

    I've got a photo of my great aunts (Mary and Rose McDaniel) by the bar in the Britannia, 13 Scotland Road. Mary was the landlady there in the 50s. Tried to upload the jpg to this post but I get a red exclamation mark symbol. Must be doing something wrong...

    Managed to save this link, which seems to work if you copy and paste it into your browser:

    Thanks, Oudeis. That was quick! Not sure I'll manage the photobucket option. Managed to save the image to my Profile though - it's in my Album. The url is this:

    http://www.yoliverpool.com/forum/alb...chmentid=24060

    Seems to work if you paste it into your browser.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Lindylou. You're a genius! My great aunt Mary McDaniel (or Mary Kate as she was known) is the lady on the left. She was the landlady of the Britannia (13 Scotland Road) between 1950 and 1960. Her sister, Rose, standing next to her, was a psychiatric nurse (later social worker) by day but would sometimes help behind the bar in the evening - often dealing with the same clientele I gather. My mum said that she has a photo of the exterior of the Britannia somewhere. If I can find it I'll upload it here - or at least I'll try...

    The Belgrave on Bryanston Road is all boarded up. I expect it has been closed since the shooting. I've only just noticed though.

    http://www.yoliverpool.com/forum/sho...l=1#post160915

    This post from Pubtopia

    the belgrave closed after a fatal shooting in the area some time ago, i remember this hotel in the early sixties when it was a really nice place to go to, to visit friends and relatives, sit in comfort and enjoy the evening. what happened ? the students arrived from the local campus, they commandeered the place with their halves of lager and would sit there all night spending nothing and taking up seats, in other words a real pain. since then unfortunately the pub has had a lot of bad times with more than unsavoury customers in attendance and then finally closed after the shooting down there. i agree with mike68 this pub is best it has ever been now that the shutters are up . sad. but fact"
