    It was replaced by the Paramount/Odeon cinema on that site (1934) and by Britain's only purpose-built boxing stadium in St Paul's Square (1932).
    Problem solved! Thanks Quentin,never heard about that stadium,though,unless the name was confused with the other one!?

    George, that 2nd picture - County rd - I can't recognise at all, yet I know County rd well. I can't make out where the road and pavement curves around like where the people are walking.
    Could do with a then & now comparison.

    edit.

    false alarm I think I can make it out now. I've recognised that turret over by Arnot st !

    I couldn't make out which direction we were looking from.

    Then you don't know county road well enough then :-) County DIY you know the road at the traffic lights,see the stone bus stop? well thats where Tesco's(AkA Sommerfields) is,the clock hanging on the wall is the funeral parlour.

    Lol,well the sign says Manchester so therefore the pic musta been taken towards walton road way.

    When looking at old pics observe specific landmarks that you might recognise that are still evident today

    EWS tanks and Islington on my site. Pfft - not seen them anywhere. The lone walker is walking down Seacombe street towards the shops on Great Homer Street, the tower of Schofield's lemonade factory on Dalrymple street on the right, the shops on Scottie in the distance - no mystery even though the photographer, Bernard Fallon has it as otherwise

    Pic in post 43 belongs to Sirob, most of the rest (if not all) are LRO.

    Islington on my site. Pfft
    I'm talking Soho street aea,Ged ie bottom of Stafford Street.

    I used to work in Edmondson(Full swing lemonade) and got off the bus on london road a nd walked down stafford street and right down Soho Street to get to the place of work from the back entrance ie Birkette Street.
    Anyway for the life of me cannot remember what was on Islington in that area and the only buildings that spring to mind is the four squares(Gardens) on or near Soho Street.

    It's not Shaw Street Park. Shaw st park (officially Whitley Gardens) is well further south.

    This picture is not Everton Brow, I think it is further along Netherfield Rd going towards the Valley. You could be looking down towards Great Homer St, The tower on the right of the Street opposite looks like Schofields Lemonade Factory.


    Sorry Ged! I have just noticed your post below this one, I have just repeated What you have said.

    This picture is looking up Eastbourne St from The top of William Henry St, Shaw St Park is just across the rd. You can see this position on the earlier photo with the two young girls, the same lamp is also in that one.

    Not quite true George, Browside was the section of road that ran from Netherfield Rd at Anne Fowlers up towards Rupert Lane and the intersection of Everton Terrace. The steps along side the lockup are also called Browside on earlier pictures. The second picture is also Everton Brow, look at earlier maps of Everton. The little park is not Shaw St that is further along (see your own photographs).
