    Thanks very much for that.
    That's the first time I've ever seen a photo of the building when it was Woolworths.
    In 1934 most of it was converted into the Tatler cinema, and the building still survives as Clarks shoes in Church Street, and Bon Marche in Williamson Street.

    I can remember the Woolworths on Park Road. This building appeared on the front page of the Echo, showing looters, at the time of the Toxteth riots.
    It's still there, but has had so many changes over the years. It's been Woolworths, Cee 'N' Cee, Gainmore, Kwik Save...then I lose count.

    Thanks for the other names, Marky.
    I moved to the Dingle in 1991, and it was Kwik Save then.
    It's worth mentioning that that was the site of the ancient Peacock Inn, and is the highest point on Park Road.

    Hey Phil. Don't let Roger Phillips hear you calling it THE Dingle. Just like Wirral, he says there's no THE prefix. Me, I always call it the Dingle cos he can't hear me.

    I never hear Roger Phillips, so that's my excuse!
    Is that his usual type of fascinating subject?
    I used to live in Bromborough in the 1950s and it was in THE Wirral.
