    Default Walton 70's & 80's

    Anyone remember:


    ADVERTISING




    Openshaws chippy with coal fired range and newspaper wrapped fish and chips?

    Abby from Cedardale Stores, top bloke, there for decades?

    Tesco and Co-Op on Rice Lane?

    The OxO park in its floral glory?

    Mrs Young's shop by the Rec?

    The throttle's nest and Atlas cinema leading to an old cobbled street then to Walton Hall Park?

    The camera shop opposite Walton Church?

    That'll do for now I guess, lots of memories!!

    Was Mrs Youngs shop on the corner of Rumney Road and Fonthill road , a little red shop ?
    My Nanna lived in Fontill road , i remember the Rec very well . We used to go there in the school holidays and they'd have the play centre open , it was great ..
    I don't Rice Lane at all , because we never ventured that for away . The Oxo gardens sounds interesting though , where was it situated ?

    There's one of them in the museum of liverpool life, the last surviving one I think.
    I'm sure someone will put me right !
