    Hi Gerard

    Since I was with you when you took the photograph, and I believe you took it in what is now the library of Dovedale Primary School, I imagine what you say took place on that spot in relation to the Beatles has something to do with John Lennon when he went to that school. Am I right, lad?

    Default University of Liverpool & Abercromby Square

    But remember the University did demolish one side of Abercromby Square and won a Civic Trust award for the quality of the architecture !! Wouldn't be allowed these days I suspect. They now complain about some yellow bus stops spoiling the photographic view of the Oxford St side of the square !!

    Personally I like the Beatles' music, but just because I live in Liverpool doesn't mean I think they're the be-all and end-all of British popular music.

    To be honest it looks like a picture of (as Chris says) a school library. Besides, isn't it one picture per day, not two? The photos themselves are good, but I think the copyright notices spoil them a bit. From my experience it's best to have a small copyright down the bottom. That way newspapers can steal them and cut the copyright off and print them - then you invoice them, quote the Copyrights Designs & Patents Act and get a tidy cheque in the post...

    taffy - quite right, the Uni have knocked down some interesting and historic buildings. Hopefully now though they're more switched on. Going back to my example of the Infirmary, what they're doing is very tasteful, and the original interior details, where not suitable for display, are being preserved behind false walls and ceilings.

    Hi Gerard

    Indeed, I thought that was the intent of using the prominent copyright markings on your photos to stop anyone using them. Good on yer, mate. Keep up the good work, lad.

    Thanks, Gerard. I will let Donna know you were asking after her. We are both well, and catching up with things after our return to the States. I do now remember you saying the library at Dovedale used to be the old headmaster's office. Very interesting. Okay re you deleting the pic.

    I was on Abercromby and Oxford street today and noticed a half broken cream and black City Of Liverpool plaque on the University Sports centre saying a Charles Booth was born there.

    Was It his home and side that got demolished?

    Heres the plaque.

    The side that got demolished had St Catherine's Church in the middle, with three houses either side.

    Hello Max

    A very important figure in Victorian and English social history. See the following for Biographical information:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...arles+Booth%22

    Also since we have had a number of non-Scousers appearing in the Famous Scousers forum, I believe Charles Booth should be there so I am going to copy these three posts, i.e., yours, mine, PhilipG's, there.
