    Nice photographs, Kev! I especially liked the one of the burned out mansion house at Allerton Golf Course which brought back memories. Both my maternal grandfather and grandmother were club captains there in their time. I was under the impression that the house was probably bombed in the war but it may have been just a fire. Does anyone know?

    Liverpool's Bedrock
    "Sandstone bedrock exposed in the park on Netherfield Rd/Shaw Street, Everton."

    Cliff was responsible for most of it, but Jack built the bit on top.

    Very fine, Mandy! Living as I do in the United States, red sandstone always makes me think of home. So I enjoyed these photographs. Good work.
