    Default More buildings around Liverpool

    I think we could do with a thread in this section for people to post photographs of buildings they are interested in but need more information about.

    For example, when you come across a building you want to identify but don't know what it is or what it has been.

    Here's another one I wonder if anyone can help me with...

    Does anyone know what the Southport McDonald's used to be?

    Beacon House.
    Southport Co-operative Society's Department Store.
    1934, if I remember correctly.

    Next question please.

    Thank you, but Beacon House was too easy.
    I worked for Southport Co-Op for a few years in the early 1960s, and Beacon House was their H/O.

    BTW, I think that the Co-Ops across the country went in for interesting architecture.
    In Liverpool, for instance, they built places like Holyoake Hall in Smithdown Road (still there, & one of my fave Liverpool buildings).
    Walton Road (demolished).

    London Road is a great building, & I've tried to find out exactly who it was built for. My research at the moment is leaning towards Rubin's (drapers), who were at the site in 1937 (which is the date Joseph Sharples gives for the building).

    Not sure if this is the right thread for these - but since the Co-Op has been mentioned I'll stick 'em here!
    Priory rd Co-Op. Anfield.
