    The old photo is taken from the fantastic flickr photostream by jibup - see here.

    Although not from an elevated position like his, this shot from yesterday shows the public realm area near to the students guild building off Brownlow Hill as it is today. 'Public Realm' - I remember when areas like this were just referred to as 'Pedestrianised'. What lies beneath many areas where we walk - who knows.

    Thanks everyone, glad you're all liking them.

    Another 40 files out of the LRO on Saturday morning to copy 226 images and amazed at how many have not been requested to be viewed before - so some first timers will be coming up soon including this one of Tarleton Street taken on 27th May 1968.


    Please remember that the scroll bar is required to view the whole photograph.

    Here is a simliar view - minus the Free Church Centre, what looked like a fine building with a tower, now replaced by a modern style bland building.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    This one belonging to the Liverpool Echo has been seen before, but as a supplier to all things essential to a young me back in the early 70s, I make no apologies for posting it again. I was actually hoping to see another shot of it at the LRO but alas, you can only see the vertical sign in the distance.

    Banastre Street and Tarleton Street both own the dishonour of being named after the same chap, a Liverpool slave trader Banastre Tarleton no less.

    Hobbies was a fantastic shop! Wasn't it somewhere near the Caernarvon Castle pub?

    Great photo in 1968. I think those three visible cars are an Escort, Cortina Mk I (in front of it) and a Hillman Hunter.

    Great photos Ged

    Thanks Ged. I was only talking to a mate the other day about Jack Sharps. He asked me what happened to it. I think it closed about 91/92? (I'm probably wrong!). We also got talking about Philip Son & Nephew. He said that it was about where Black's now stands. I thought it was where the Welkin is!


    Remember Ricky Brown(e)s as well on Sir Thomas Street?

    My mate and I went for an interview to Ricky Brown Sports shop, near the bottom of Sir Thomas Street in 1978. We wnt upstairs, shirt and tie on - the lot. We were sat in the waiting area when a lad came out all flustered, stopped, looked at us and loosened his tie, sweat appeared on his forehead. My mate and I looked at each other. After being seen by the bloke individually, we compared how we thought it had gone. We were told that we'd be expected to stand most of the day, stringing tennis racquets and he pointed to one lad and said take a look at his hands. His palms were cut to shreds and there were criss crosses of cuts. My mate come out shaking his head saying, i've got it, it sounds like i've got the job - but he didn't want it. A few days later a letter came to his house stating he'd got the job. He didn't take it, by the end of that week we both had jobs anyway, my mate in Letherens on St Anne Street and me at CVR in Virgil Street.


    Here's Tarleton Street in 1970. Another gem from the LRO.

    And looking the other way towards Williamson Square in 1958.

    Funny you should mention Jack Sharps Mark. I have been trying to find info for years on Jack Sharps Golf Course. I can't find a thing. I was told it maybe because "it was built on dodgy money".

    Anyone else have any ideas. ? It used to be on the back fields of Lower House Lane Police station.

    This fine building ended up as a Yates Wine Lodge in its last guise as a pub but the badge on its exterior and another pub in the same street give clues as to its original name.

    Another 267 out last weekend - 212 on them, I was the first name on the folder. It's just amazing that all these glossy b&w photos are there of Liverpool and only the photographer and staff of the LRO have seen them up to now.
