So the view we are looking at is from Derby Square, from the statue of Queen [...]

    Some things never change...the blokes waiting forthe doors to open,I guess the old saying stemmed from this era ie a pub on every corner not one but three adjacent to each other,the fourth across the street where the ghosting figure is.

    Great pic' Colin,and you're so right about the "Brookhouse"!! I think I've asked about this before,but have you any idea where the term "Weint" came from? Apparently there were several,in that area,until the 60's/70's,but after demolition,the name/term disappears,though I think there is one on a modern estate in Allerton!

    "Wynd" is the Scottish term for "Weint"...meaning an narrow lane or allyway.
