    Default Foundation Stones

    Thought I'd put this in a new thread as it's slightly different from all the others.

    Basically photo's of foundation stones that display more than just the date of the building.

    I've started with St Barnies:

    That's a good idea, Jona.
    I know you've already posted a photo of St B's, but can we have the complete building as well as the foundation stone in this thread?
    I'll start snapping.

    Nice photo Kev. Nice to see the name Toxteth proudly displayed. Don't the locals think this area is in Aigburth though

    It's opposite McDonalds at the Ullet Road end of Aigburth Road.

    I'd much rather say that McDonalds is opposite the former Toxteth Institute.

    For you ex-Pats, McDonalds was built on the site of Parkfield Motors.

    The foundation stone was from the period when it was a methodist church. The methodists don't seem to have survived very well in Wavertree with a number of their churches closing down. Similarly the United Reform Church whose original main building in Earle Rd is now a mosque.

    Default St Mary's Church Wavertree

    St Mary's Victoria Park Wavertree was originally a Wesleyan Methodist Church. It was purchased after WW2 by the Church of England to replace the bomb damaged original St Mary's Church, Sandown Park. This interesting pair od foundation stones show continuity between the two sites.

    Default Toxteth Technical Institute

    Just thought I'd mention that Tocky Tech. reaches its' Centenary on 17th October 2007 (this Wednesday). Worth photographing, if I don't forget by next week. It's the red-brick building at the start of Aigburth Road.
