    Just trying to place that house on the left of pic' 1,wonder if it's still there? Though I've just realised that Queens drive is now a dual carriageway,and it probably went during the road widening!

    The house belonged to Liverpool City Council senior veterinary surgeon, no longer there.

    On the 2nd Queens Drive pic, even Walton Park Flats (3 storey 1950s units) have since bitten the dust, so has Queens Drive baths on the right. The foreground is now the sight of the roundabout with the flyover atop of course.

    In the first and second pic the small road turning left used to have a dairy depot on it. My sister lived in a big 5 bedroomed house next to it.

    These are stills from some old films so not sure if they are of LRO origin. I have that cd you mention called P.O.O.L. The LRO sell it.

    This one is from the LRO online catalogue.

    It shows the corrugated iron mission hall first left. Then the vets house beyond 22/5/1908. Queens Drive baths and library are under construction. Behind them is Walton Stables made of prefabricated concrete from Cobbs quarry on St. Domnigo road and transported there by traction engine (just like the Eldon st flats a few years earlier)

    Not sure Steve because the Town Hall doesn't seem to be lined up with QD here, however the angle might not be good. Zoomed in but can't tell if there's railings at the front but I would summise it was demolished for the widening of the drive so it could be.
