    Default Liverpool Directory! Please help?

    Hello, i am trying to find out where Alessandro (alexander) Capaldi lived in Liverpool, anytime between 1914 and 1956.
    Please can anyone with access to any directory in this time, see if he is in there?

    Failing that i have knowledge of an A. Capaldi in Wavertree rd, but i dont know his full name.
    Please help?

    Yes you can.
    I'm in work at the moment, will look later - remind me after 5 today and I'll check.
    There was a famous Capaldi's on Prescot RD - Kensington too, don't know if this was Alex...

    Thank you Mart!
    I rang the estate agents today on 266 smiothdown, just trying to get any info on previous owners etc, to see if Alex had any children, as i'd like to get in touch, but no luck unfortunately!

    Thanks for this though mate!

    That shop beleive it or not, after your info you gave martin, was started by Antonio of Wavertree rd and passed on to his sons Armando and Ernesto.
    Alex Capaldi in Smithdown rd is my relations shop!
    I dont suppose it would be a bit too much if i asked if you could look at the business section under 'Milk Bar' or 'Confectioners' or 'Cafe' or some shop for Capaldi, in your directory could you mart?
    Please?
