    The former Mere Lane cinema has certainly seen better days.

    Wasn't somebody murdered there, a few years ago?

    I'm getting a little bit worried about you,Oudi.

    This lamp standard is situated in the middle of the road of the two pic links I posted previously,it/they were laid there in 1890 give or take five years,its still there today as I type.

    Now then on west derby road by brougham terrace there used to be underground public toilets opposite the old cinema,where these toilets were there was another lamp of the same ilk I think? and this one was taken down,why not leave that one up as well?

    I'm summising the lamp is a piece of architecture and the heritage has stopped the council from removing it?

    Its the last piece of me past thats still standing.
