    omg Ged just seen the picture you put on of the Abbey Cinema in Wavertree it brought back great memories, Saturday mornings, a gang of us would scrat around for enough money for one of us to pay to get in, normally from collecting empty pop bottles and taking them back to the shop for the money, then when that person had gone in they would go and open fire escape door and let us all in, it was great and before the days of alarms going off at the mere touch of a fire escape watched some great films and cartoons plus had a good time winding up the ice cream woman, we must have been nightmare kids in there but fun anyway funny how although we were right scallies in them days it was all harmless fun, like sitting in the laundrette on freezing cold evenings getting a warm until we got too loud and the attendant chasing us out with her sweeping brush!!

    blimey! the road sweepers certainly done their job way back then.

    y first Cinema encounter was that one on Mere Lane...Flash Gordon and Zorro's adventures,....wonder if the Fire escape exit door is still there well it was the only way in for us when we did'nt have a tanner.

    GED, your pics are amazing, thanks for sharing. I was taken right back into nostalgia-land with them, and was suddenly surprised to see one of Towson Street.......I was born there in 1939 Are any of those photos available for sale anywhere? I'll spend many happy hours browsing your photos now - thank you

    Ged I have to say your photo's are amazing and have brought back some very very happy memories for me......you mentioned the Probe record shop....and looking at the photo has taken me right back in time.....that I can almost see myself in there.....there used to be a fabulous clothes shop near it....although it may have been part of it......they sold loon pants..any one remember them...flared they were with a type of stitched chevron at the knee....in the most flamboyant colours..I remember having a red pair with blue stars on....

    The photo's of the Royal Liverpool Infirmary.. well what can I say......I did some of my training there..and one of your photo's shows one of the the round wards..they were called the Florence Nightingale wards and were quite unique.

    One thing that has intrigued me is the David Lewis Theatre....I did not know of its existence I am shamed to say....or maybe I just forgot...but it is an exact duplicate of the David Lewis Northern Hospital.....my main training hospital......just seeing the photo and the likeness has brought a lump to my throat..... so many happy memories once again....

    So my thanks to you for yet another glorious trip down memory lane

    It's the Trocadero, which became the Gaumont, Camden Street, off London Road. Closed 4 May 1974

    Yep you're right Greg,its just that I couldn't place the dark building at the side of it which put me off thinking it was london road area.
    Lidl and carpark is now standing on that ground.

    I always went to The Gaumont in the late 60s early 70s. It would screen the films after they had finished their run on The Odeon, and was half the price as a result. Following closure of the cinema it reopened as a snooker hall, I remember ending up in there on stag night, you could get a drink throughout the night (a rare thing in those days), and it was daylight when we emerged.

    A picture from the late 60s is attached.

    Default Re derelict building in Cornwallis Street

    This wasn't exactly a school, but was where blind men worked weaving baskets, etc. I remember this building in use when I went past it to Cornwallis Street Baths in the late 50's and early 60's

    Another 60 or so photos added to the post war and pre war section of my site. These being LRO offerings:

    This one from 1903 shows the Liverpool/Bootle boundary on Stanley Road.






    I have received around a dozen colour pics from a couple of contributors for my streets ahead page too, one lot from 1967-1970 showing bunting on the bullring for the Cathedral opening and the flyovers being built and another from the countries tallest skybar taken just recently.

    Cheers Spike.

    Here's one that's close to my heart as I just about remember Islington looking like this. From Fraser st on the left, these properties survived until the late 80s in a delapidated state including the white tower of Hyman's on the corner of Camden street.

    On the right, the big building on the corner of Christian street is the TGWU HQ before it was demolished and rebuilt as that sandy looking building there now but I think currently undergoing demolition/renovation?

    Across Islington is the Wellington pub known locally as Casson's. Rushworths was a little further down until you come to the Sessions house and the Islington/William Brown st that we all know and love as it is now.

    This is another LRO pic, from 1961 but it was like this, on the right anyway until about 1970.

    And across the road from the TGWU building was Tom Regans were gentlemen of the road, if they weren`t staying in the Norton St salvation army place, went for their lunches.
    As a kid I was told there were rooms over Tom`s, were for 2 old pennies you could spend the night drooped over a rope line. I think you would call it a doss house.

    Plenty of them around wasn't there GD, sleeping over a rope pulled taut from one end of the room to the other, I can think of Champion Whates on Scottie and the Unique on Shaw st.

    I don't know if that TGWU building is listed or not zappa, personally I don't mind it though I know a few people hate its design. That and the sandcastle, RSA building on Old Hall st are of their time, if we got rid of them, it'd be wiping out that period of architecture whether it be good or bad - there's worse imho.
