    Where are you getting all these photos George ? -- on-line? or are you visiting LRO ??

    .. are you finding them on-line yourself ? ie, the Chambre Hardman site ?

    Does that mean we don't have to go in person any more to the LRO office ? every thing is now accessible on-line?

    is it this one you look at ?

    No MrsLou,there are still a huge amount of photies that are only accessible bia visit to the LRO...eck! if they were all accessible on-line then Kev would have need a big server.

    Thanks Zaps. Only the tip of the iceberg has been scratched though and I suppose that's a good thing as there are still lots more to be unearthed. I've got behind in putting my last half dozen visits to the LRO on my site (averaging 180 pics per visit) but the good thing is i'm getting lots of requests via my site for pics that weren't on there which after emailing to the persons concerned, i'm putting some of them on the forum.

    Lindy, this is the page you want. Not every hit contains an online photo though many of them do contain a photo to be seen upon a visit to the LRO by quoting the reference number at the top.

    Thanks Georgie, Re- that first pic, (Pitt Place-Woolton) , the building shown at the rear of picture looks like part of the old 'Bear Brand' stocking factory, ie: Howard Fords of Woolton.

    No they're not, on the contrary if you go onto the main forum page and click on ged's inacityliving set up for me by Kev, each of my offerings are in their own thread so if you're looking for pics of Seacombe St you'll find it in the Seacombe st thread, not the Conyers st one.



    There is always the forums own search facility in the top right for the more technical minded

    Woodstock, off Scottie Road. My uncle lived in them. Benledi street houses were facing and the corpy housing office on the oller in between both. The bus has just gone past Dolly Hickies aka The Honky Tonk.

    Me Da loved those Ford Popular cars pictured in the Webb Street photie,whenever the battery went flat he'd crank it up with bar that turned the engine over to start it.

    mind you that wasn't often and only in winter,the batterys were naff back then.

    During the long search I have been doing over the last couple of days I came across a few pics of road and pavement collapsed photies,also photies of workers digging under the residential streets like Foley St,Vauxhall Road,Eldon Street even down Dale Street and surrounding area.

    This digging has resulted in collapse of these areas and had to resupported.

    Here's one here of the extent of the collapse,just goes to show that any old house that were built 1800's 1900's and were deemed unsafe maybe was due to the massive underground digging that took place in 1900's up to the 40's?

    What was the purpose of this deep trenching digging? so deep the workers were practically standing up.

    Vauxhall Road /Eldon Street
