    Spot on ellergreen. A true Scottie roader then

    Wilbraham House tennies were built on St. Martins church Scottie though. Now that site's a petrol station. The Derby cinema building which is still there was originally a Weslyan chapel.

    You're right Ged,
    my big Sis tell me it survived into the fifties and was situated in Woodstock street and Westmorland st/place, behind Costigans the Grocers.

    Thanks, Steve. If you look at the postmark on the address side of the postcard it is 1931 although of course the photograph may have been taken some years earlier. Thank you so much for posting your photos of the Great Crosby mill!

    I think it was situated where (upper) Woodstock Gardens are. Between Silvester and Benledi Streets.
    Demolished late 40's.
    Sadly, no pics. Cameras were a luxury item in those days.

    If you study the cars in pic'1,you can assume it's late 50's,early 60's,judging by the models!( an Austin Cambridge is one of them,I think)

    Here's some information on the execution of Jacobite prisoners from the Old Pretender's rebellion of 1715 at the Gallows Mill off London Road, as described in Richard Brooke, Liverpool as it was During the Last Quarter of the Eighteenth Century (1863 edition):



    (Note: the page begins by saying that the prisoners were in the Tower on Water Street before their execution.)

    Scott's / Wilson's Mill, Toxteth, 1962 (BTW, Chris, how did you get on with digitsing your 1960s pics of this - I've only been waiting 3 years to see them? ;o))

    Nag! Nag! Nag! Actually I was only just thinking that I need to digitize my slides, which is long overdue. I also have some great shots of the southern docks when I worked as a clerk at Wapping Dock for the Mersey Docks and Harbor Board in 1966. Just to make you even more jealous. I will get the slides transferred to digital format soon I hope. Thanks for the friendly nudge.

    Hi Ged

    I looked but did not see any of the Toxteth mill. Wrong page maybe?

    A picture which explains very well why windmills went out of use. In a windy week, a mill like Great Crosby would do well to fill two or three of the carts full of flour sacks in this photo of the Liverpool North Shore steam mills (and a small mill like Wavertree would do well to fill one). All the carts shown, combined, are carrying one day's output from North Shore [IMG][/IMG]

    Woolton windmill, built 1810, before and after the fire which gutted it in 1898

    Ainsdale Mill, converted to steam power (demolished about 1970):
