    Default Bold Street

    Hello.

    At FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) at 88 Wood Street, Liverpool, we are currently researching Bold Street for a gallery show to begin Saturday 30th June. I was wondering if any one has any information about the following:


    ADVERTISING




    45 Bold Street (which was home to the Liverpool Union Bank in 1893 but we have no other information on what was here in other years)

    75-77 Cramer & Lea (if any one worked here or bought something from this shop, we’d love to know)

    85 Bold Street (premises over the years included P&P Campbell’s Dye Works, Carryer and Gill agents for Liberty & Co., Francis and Proctor hairdressers)

    92 The Odd Spot Club (we discovered that the Beatles played here in 1962, so it would be fantastic if anyone knew anybody who’d seen them there, or knew anything about the Odd Spot-it used to be a casino)

    Please contact me at this email address boldstreet@fact.co.uk

    Thanks,

    Laura Yates

    45 Bold Street was completed in 1885 when it opened as the Union Bank of Liverpool.
    By the 1930s the building was occupied by Charles Taylor, a house furnisher.

    75-77 was built about 1830.

    85 was one of the original houses in Bold Street.

    The Odd Spot was at 89 Bold Street, not 92.

    Sorry about the number 92 typo everyone! Thanks Philip, for your help though. All the information at our blog is correct however, at www.boldstreet.org.uk/blog If anyone else has information on these places, we'd love to hear from you!
