    most of those I went looking for today have gone...booo

    still found a couple



    wish this barbers was still going. my hubby used to use it and the old window was full of packaging for stuff that wasn't available anymore. Ron Brown was his name, had a dog that looked liked he used to practice on it I'm told.


    and this gem in Walton...the top bit is J Jones and Co. the underneath is more obvious Knotty Ash Ales.

    Hi Quincyg.

    I'm loving all your photos.
    Lots I've never seen.
    The Wilkinsons one is on a building that was a very short lived cinema, and even one of the places where Billy Fury may have appeared!

    This is the building, in Prescot Road.
    You can make out 'Stanley Billiard Hall', but if you look even closer, it also says 'Stanley Picturedrome'.
    It was built as a billiard hall, was a cinema from 1910 to 1915, then reverted to a billiard hall (after the New Premier opened).
    It was later the Embassy night club where, in December 1968, it was announced that Billy Fury would appear.
    Unfortunately, I couldn't find out whether he actually did!

    I had no idea. I took a photo of the old cinema that was opposite. I didn't bother with the 3 on East Prescot Rd as they've had photos posted up before. Oh well.

    spotted the Wilkinsons sign from the bus on the way to check Woolies at Penny Lane.
    Should have got off bus then as Woolies is just a white tiled floor now.

    ah that one ,I took 2 pics of the billiard hall sign yest, but forgot to post them.

    the Wilkinsons sign is not on that building. The Wilkies one is near Green Lane...the old Billiard Hall is by the meat market.

    That's a coincidence about Wilkinsons, because they were on the ground floor of the Embassy Club (former Stanley Billiard Hall) for years, and did have a similar sign on the side of the building!

    nice idea, but we'd have to split up or we'd all end up with the same photos.

    I was saying to Ged today we should have a badge so we can recognise each other when out and about photographing. I saw someone taking pics of a tower today. I took a couple of tower myself but he'd gone before I could go over and ask if he was off the forum.
