    Default Scotland Place

    Hi
    I have been researching my family tree and wondered if anyone has any pics of Scotland Place in 1901 period at all?

    I know this is not quite what you are after, but we are hardly spoiled for choice.

    Got Scotland Place but 1904 Will that do?

    A group of shoeblack boys, some barefoot, taken in 1904 at the Dandy Pat Byrne drinking fountain on Scotland Place. The Memorial, probably the only one to a publican was in memory of Irishman Pat Byrne who did much for the area. The fountain was moved to Pownall Square in the 1970s, was vandalised in the 1980s (those Vauxy lot were rough y'know) but was restored in the 1990s by a Committe formed by author Mike Kelly (a nice bloke) The plinth and fountain was found in a council yard and now takes pride of place in St. Anthony's churchyard on Scotland Road where it was unveiled on 14.4.2000 in the presence of some of Pat Byrnes relatives from Co. Wexford, Ireland.

    Dandy Pat was the landlord of the Morning Star pub you can see in the backdrop here. Named The Earl of Chester in the 1840s, it was reported in the 1888 that it was upwards of 100 years old then and was called the Royal Oak from the 1850s. It was listed at 24-28 (earlier before renumbering, it was listed as No.15) Scotland Place. It became the Morning Star in the 1860s and in the 1890s the licensee was Felix Byrne. Known locally as Bloods, it was the last pub to be demolished on Scotland Place and had a large clock keeping the locals in good time.

    Information with thanks to Freddy O'Connor.
