    The 1st one is a picture of the Childwall Abbey taken from the lytchgate of the church over the road. A lovely clear picture!

    A view looking down the road towards the church with the Abbey on the right.

    It in the location of the QEII law courts with Trials Hotel and the Town Hall in the far back ground.

    I'll have to look the street up as its not there any more but Cable Street runs off it.

    Well done Ged. There is a street sign on the wall but I went Gozzy trying to work out what it said.

    Yes, there was.
    I've got photos which I'll put in the '1980s, 1990s' thread.

    Thanks Phil, that'll bring back some memories. When you think of how that area has changed a number of times before and is currently changing again.

    I've found the photos, and while you're right about the bus being in South Castle Street, Telegraph House was actually in South John Street (I wrote it on the back of the photos, that's how I know. )

    I'll scan them now.

    I drove the 16 for a bit in the late 60s. Can't place that at all. Make a guess at Stanley Road.

    No. Prince Alfred Road And Walton. I was on the spare sheet at both and was spare man at the Pier Head quite often and got the odd 16 if someone failed to turn to or went off sick. Sometimes got sent to the Haymarket for 51too.

    Sorry, i've even examined this scene against other photos I have of the streets mentioned previously but as there are no defining buildings such as a pub or shop name, it's hard to work out just where it is.
