    Reading through my posts, I feel the need to redress some of the criticism I have thrown at the politicians and planners who contributed to the relandscaping of Liverpool. As today’s photograph of Rice Lane shows, much of our ‘heritage’ had deteriorated to a state where demolition was the most effective response. Rice Lane was [...]

    Great that Colin. There's a chap on flickr with similar colour photos of Walton from the 50s/60s.

    I think it is either demolition dust or a fire - although there is noone around. Possibly the photograph was taken as demolition started.

    I worked at Dunlop's from 1967 - 73 and walked up and down that stretch of Rice Lane thousands of times, for my bus on Queen's Drive.
