    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool

    how it once was?

    I think you're right George,I seem to remember them from when I was a kid.

    CW,was Stan Roberts originaslly from Norris Green?
    There was a bloke of that name who lived in Scarisbrick Drve in the 40s and 50s.
    I went to school with his son.

    I can't swear to it? but I do know there was at least 2 to 3 blocks of em.

    However something in the back of me mind is tellin me that there was some on Walton road before the Astoria cinema ie going towards town way.?

    Anyway here's the ones on Walton Lane and if you google Walton Lane and its Street view you'll see a lot of new house at the side of the pub thats where blocks of the shops and house above where,in the pic and there was more the other side of the pub(same side ie left of the pub in the pic.
