    Here's a nice panorama shot (that I wish I had taken!) from a 1983 postcard. (photograph by Peter Hagerty, copyright Light Impressions, Liverpool)

    Great photo Phillip, I have one similar. It mightn't mean much to many, but having grown up just around in Gerard Gardens, the fountain area was my playground. Tick on the giant steps (of the Wellington Column), going up Mill Lane at the side of the Walker Art Gallery to look down at the 'giants grave' - another old folklore. Traipsing around the Museum and Walker many weekends...

    There were 3 pubs there. The County (Peppers), The Court House and The Hare & Hounds. The Burtons building on the corner of London road became the John Lennon bar in the early 90s. The rest of the block was delapidated by then which had been a jewellers, pipe shop, book shop etc in their time.

    Keep em coming Phillip. Love your tram ride to Dingle book by the way.

    What a fantastic pic. Thanks. When I lived in Hughes St, we used to walk down there to play.

    Childwall C of E Primary School (my Primary School) on Woolton Road.

    Demolished before my eyes in 1989 - an utter crime.

    The Transport boxing club used to be just around the Islington corner aswell. Was the bookshop the last thing to close??
    The Giants grave! Used to love going to see that. Is it an air raid shelter?
    That pic of the Albert dock with the demolished buildings in the foreground and the transit sheds behind is boss.

    The bookshop was about the last shop, but didn't Pepper's continue more-or-less to the end?
    The Transport Boxing Club is on another photo I've got.
    I'll post it later.

    Nice one mate, trained there in the late 80s for a bit.
    Think you are right about peppers because I remember people coming out of stay behinds when I was walking out of town for a cab on a Saturday.

    Oh good, another mystery solved - I just found a photo of this street and was wondering where it was. This photo is from the early 90s, I think.

    I bought my wife's wedding ring from Maurice Abelsons & Sons the jewellers. On the first picture you can see the round white turret of Hymans on the corner of Camden Street.

    Does anyone have any pictures of the facade of the old Fruit n Veg warehouse on the corner of Wavertree Road/Tunnel Road that disappeared one weekend without any say so from the Council?

    PhillipG - You're a star. Did you photograph the whole of Liverpool by any chance? Those Islington pics are great, as I said earlier, so nonentity to many, but brill to us who lived around the corner and walked past them nearly every day. You'll notice that Hymans seems to be a different business on every pic, glad I didn't work for any of them.

    The little sweet shop next to Transport House boxing club was known as 'Barney's', owned in the 70s by Joan and Peter someone or other. I can picture them now. He owned a brown Cortina MKIII with black vinyl roof and alloys and he used to let me and my cousin wash it and we'd help them stock the tiny little stockroom around the back. Back Commutation Row still exists.

    I remember diving in the chest freezer for choc ices, Zooms and Twicers in that summer of 76 and Top Deck shandy was all the go too after a game of footy by the fountain.

    Can see the character within these old buildings which sadly lack in the new 'improved' buildings of today. That usually get left emptied after a while.

    Alright. There's no mystery that this was the Kemlyn Road entrance at Anfield, but I need a date. Any idea when tickets to this stand were 8 pounds? The car parked in the front should also give a clue. My friend John took this photo but nothing is written on the back, and it got separated from it's original envelope years ago.

    Love the broken glass long the top of the wall, it really says welcome!

    The centenary stand was completed in 1992 and the Kop demolished in 1994, so it was some time between the two. A quick check of some old programmes has shopwn that admission to the Kop was 8 in both the 1992-3 and 1993-4 seasons.

    Actually, it's the Kop, right? I'm looking at the other picture I posted, and that would make sense. Does it still look anything like this?

    Yes it's the Kop but the whole thing has been demolished now and rebuilt. The stands to either side are still in existence.

    Thanks SteH for the detective work, I think '93 sounds about right. So ticket prices have only gone up about 400% since then, right?
