    Default 85 Bold Street.

    Does anyone know what this building was used for originally. Ron Formby of the Scottie Press is interested in the mosaics on the entrance floor which seem to be a thistle or similar. It has just opened as 'The Italian Club' cafe.
    Thank ye.

    Is there a photo of it?
    I'm not sure which is 85.
    It doesn't seem to be mentioned by Joseph Sharples (at least not by number).

    Here's the 1936 directory entry.

    Here's one of Ron's pics. It's driving me mad that I can't place where it is. Ged mate, is it anywhere near to the bookshop that has your display in the window?

    Dave, it's opposite News from Nowhere and up a few doors facing the fruit stalls.

    Phil. Ron reckons Gill and Colley (est 1901) were a Scottish Co. Shown on your 1936 register (thanks for that) If they were in that building in 1901 it is possible that the Liverpool Italians would have done that mosaic, I think that's what he's trying to find out.
