    Yes please, Rob.

    I'd love to see more.
    It's great to see them in colour.
    I've photocopied loads from the library, but all in B & W.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    The Flag company was in that street. When I was about 16 I went there for a job interview.

    Default Kitchen Street Stables

    My great grandfather was the residential stable master at Walker's Ales stables on Kitchen Street circa 1910-1930 and a great uncle followed him from about 1930 -35.

    The stables building is sadly demolished now and the plot stands vacant and tatty. A McDonald's has been built on the Dock Rd frontage and truncates the Kitchen St and Bridgwater St junctions.

    There's a short piece on the stables (and some nice drawings of the facade and interior) in a Walker's Ales 1896 golden jubilee souvenir book. I've been trying to attach an extract but unfortunately the upload function keeps failing.

    Anyway, I'm keen to know if there's any more information available (I couldn't find anything at the public records office where Walker's archives are deposited). If anyone here can point me to further information I'd be very grateful.

    Regards,
    WB.

    I took this a few days ago (for the large warehouse between Blundell and Kitchen Streets), but from your description, this sounds the area you're interested in. Maybe It'll jog someones memory.

    Yes, that's right Marky. The Walkers stables would have been in the overgrown land behind the pallisade fence on the right hand side of your photo. Thanks for taking and posting this.

    Just had another go at uploading the scanned book extract but sadly no joy. (gif reduced in size to 208kb, 728 x 530pixels - any ideas what I might be doing wrong?)

    Cheers,

    Default 1835 Map of Liverpool by Bennison

    Hi,

    Apologies if this is Off topic.

    Bennison's Map of Liverpool was published in 1835. It covers most of modern day Liverpool, from Seaforth and Aintree in the north, Fazakerley and West Derby to the east, down to Allerton, Childwall and Woolton in the south.

    The northern section of the map is on my website, and I'm hoping to get the remainder online before Christmas. Here is a sample, covering Bootle.







    See you,

    Tony

    Hi,

    This is a section of Bennison's 1835 Map of Liverpool, covering the Chidwall area. The sheets covering Much Woolton, Allerton, Mossley Hill and Aigburth, as well as those covering north Liverpool, are now online.






    See you,

    Hi Dave

    Liverpool is at the middle right, spelled "lyu'pole" which is actually south. The top of the map is the east coast of England, with Hartlepool in the top left corner. Bottom right is Anglesey with Beaumaris shown unrealistically on the north coast... never mind. Scotland is on the left (north) with what is supposed to be Hadrian's Wall the castellated line running diagonally toward the bottom, the Lake District just to the right of that with Workington visible on the coast and the Isle of Man ("Insula de man") offshore, partly off the map. The curvy lines you asked about are the rivers so the next curvy line to the left or north of Liverpool is the Ribble with Cockersand Abbey with the steeple on the coast and Lancaster and Preston visible and "Amounderness" hundred noted in the rectangle. The big place in the middle of the map or more correctly top center right marked "Eboracum" is the Latin name for York with the rivers shown and nearby places like Ripon and Knaresborough marked. Dave, I hope this explanation helps!

    This is from a book published in 1657 the days before they had snappy titles - "A BOOK of the NAMES of all Parishes, Market Towns, Villages, Hamlets and the smallest Places in England and Wales - Alphabetically set down, as they be in every Shire with the Names of the Hundreds in which they are, and how many Towns there are in each Hundred."

    ...or as we'd call it, a Gazetteer.

    I'm completely gobsmacked! Almost every time I visit this website I come
    upon something interesting and rewarding!! This thread is a case in point -absolutely fascinating. I came across it quite by accident an hour ago and
    followed it backwards - if I can coin a phrase - and next time follow it all
    through again logically and even more painstakingly. My thanks to all for your
    contributions , it's a really brilliant thread you've put together!
