    Good to see, Ged. Thanks. That's an odd graphic that they have for the 1804 Dingle duel. It looks more like a couple of chaps in Tudor doublets going at it with rapiers and daggers, whereas the duellists in question, Sparling and Grayson, used flintlock pistols. I don't believe the duel took place at the Ancient Chapel but in the dell of the old dingle, going here by Robert Griffith's History of the Royal and Ancient Park of Toxteth They also need to correct the spelling of "St. Domingo's."

    Steven, glad you weren't in there singing.

    Hope that isn't the reason for the attack either.

    "The Poets Corner in Park Hill Road, Toxteth was sprayed with bullets at 2am."

    Does the gunman not like poets or is it pubs they don't like?

    They organised the trip to the Ancient Chapel, the Turner Home and the Dingle Tunnel.
    I bluffed my way in!
    It was well organised. They even gave out notes, and about 4 or 5 pages of "A Tram Ride to Dingle" were included (without saying where they came from).
    And no plug in that list of books!

    How cheeky - not you, them.

    You should have made a fuss. If they'd confronted you about how you bluffed your way in, you could have said you were tipped off that they were going to use pages from your book, they might've re-imbursed you in some way, even if it was offering you places on any future events FOC.

    Thanks Ged and Shy.
    The 'funny' thing was that one of the organisers (no names, no pack drill) knows me very well.

    Hi PhilipG

    As a fellow author, I can sympathize that you were not given proper credit for your work. You should write a letter of complaint. Maybe you have already done so. I also concur with Shy that your book is great, mate. I was very pleased to get you to sign a copy for me when we met in the Dingle in May.

    Just found this thread, cheers for the link Ged, I had forgot that I had sent in a couple of photos to them, on page 2 of the Images link, theres an old photo of me and my wife, and an even older photo of the Beaufort Street School (Bewy Board) nativity play, from about 1969, that one made it into The Echo.

    Default Memories of Mill Street

    Posted on another site by Meeroo.


    A long time ago you may recall quite well
    From a needle to anchor they used to sell
    In a variety of shops with the best attention
    I can’t name them all, but many I can mention
    There were places of worship, places to drink
    There was a factory close by where they bottled the ink
    Familiar the trade mark, a gracious white swan
    Two trams served this route, 45 and 21

    The facilities offered were beyond compare
    The only street in the city to boast its own fair
    A ride on the high flyer, terrific the thrill
    And the dusty flour men coming out of the Wilson Mill
    The Domestic Mission, the Park Palace, the Florrie
    The cow butter stores on the corner of Warrie
    Wringers repaired with new rollers and cogs
    The animal clinic for sick cats and dogs

    Feeling off colour or a pain in your tummy
    There is Kennedy’s Chemist on the corner of Northummy
    Always well stocked with medical goods
    And bad teeth were extracted by dentist Mr Woods
    Woolfendens, and Denny’s pawnshop – they accepted pledges
    Oven fresh bread from Johnson’s and Black Ledges
    Irwin’s, The Maypole in competition with Gates
    Spareribs and cabbage from old Postlethwaites

    Clarkson’s for bedding, new boots from Lee’s
    Or the running shutters, and flowers from Bee’s
    John Cook the pork butcher made delicious spice balls
    And the tanner hop, in Jack Quinn’s dance hall
    The hollow, the big step, quite close to forge crack
    The Rat House, the Crows Nest to knock a pint back
    Then there was The Flat Iron, The Brass Bars and The Weathercock
    Old Clement Troop’s shop for a second hand frock

    Bleach, soap and soda to help with the chores
    Gas mantles, paraffin and candles from Law’s
    Bob’s for a shave, a trim or a shingle
    All these facilities in one street in the Dingle
    A street full of memories, they linger still sweet
    But progress has now changed, the face of Mill Street

    I remember a lot of what was in the poem. ..and Mill St was replicated in Park Road which ran parallel to it.

    A couple of good pics here by Springy of Dingle point rocky outcrop showing as it was on the original shoreline and then on the main path of the garden festival site which in itself became Riverside Drive as there now.

    See the side car on the bike, I remember being taken out on one. Who's the kid Ronnie.
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,

    Not much of a sidecar that, not like the one that Olive in 'on the buses' veered off in another direction. That one on the pic looks more like a bread tray

    Nice looking little girl, with hot-pants on too.

    The side car is just a chassis. You could legally rise a bike over 250cc as a learner if it had a side car - or chassis. Young kids would put them on, pass their test and take them off.

    The houses at the bottom in Northumberland St are still there, the rest have been demolished. I can't remember the name of the street cutting through Micawber St.

    I can't either and it is driving me mad. Was it Weller Street?

    I looked at the side car thing, it has no 'car' bit. Maybe for luggage?
