    I agree though, **** stupid place to put it. Not a lot of point it being there really

    They'd been keeping an eye on a dodgy looking fella with a pile of bricks just before they opened!

    66 or 67.Joe and the anglia was not shoved up against the wall as in spikes pic,it was on a stand and you could walk around it and it was light blue,fink Ged was a twinkle in his dads eye then?

    Correction he was a little fart in a nappy.

    ---------- Post added at 08:44 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:29 PM ----------

    The Green,Purple,Orange one was rolled off the production line in 1963 and the owner had it for 3 years so that means the official car in the museum in 65/66 was light blue and in 66 the museum must have dumped the blue one for the 63 model?

    It was up against a wall, you could not walk around it..
    It had a train carriage behind you if you stood side on with the car in front of you..
    from the same standing position...
    the exit to William Brown Street was 20 yards to the left through a door......
    that led to toilets on the right.. a crisp machine to the right of the toilets..
    a stairway by the toilets... and the ground floor exit that was later blocked for years..
    next to the staircase...

    and to the left of the exit was a lecture theatre/movie/slideshow room


    and, the Ford Anglia in William Brown St museum was Lime Green...

    I know.. it was my playground..
    I lived right behind the museum...
    and I still do today..
    and the area is still my playground 40 odd years later..


    Any bets ?..



    Thanks..

    I seem to recall there being a steam wagon there also, was it a Sentinel?

    I wouldn't know the name.. sorry
    there was all kinds in that basement...
    its been doing my head in all day trying to remember an item that was next to the car..
    I know it was only small.. on a stand, or base of some kind..


    I know one thing for certain...
    I loved that car as a kid.. and I never saw the far side of that car..
    One side was visible... you could not walk around that car..



    I'm sure there was a wigwam...or something to do with Red Indians..
    to the left of the car as you walked toward the exit...

    It will come to me everything that was in that basement room..

    Thanks..

    Gerard.
    I recall an exhibition in the 1950's portraying early American indians. It was opened upstairs. The theme was the American colonial wars and there was a large glass case displaying the Delaware* indian culture.

    There was a tomahawk/peace pipe, a bear's robe, bead decorated clothes and wampum bag, bows, arrows etc. There may have also been a conical dwelling.

    All very colourful and eye catching. Could these be the items you recall being stored in the basement, Gerard?

    Cheers,
    Chas

    I remember it as you do Gerard, and here it is, up against a wall. Don't forget George goes back a hell of a long way before us

    There was a John Masons removal wagon near yo it but right facing was the Leyland Fire Engine which is now in store.

    Colour looks very similar to me just the photo brightness showing a difference
    The car was ceremonially driven off the production line by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool on 8 March 1963 and was handed over to its new owner with a special registration 1KF.

    Spent many hours in the old museum with my lads in the early 70's, they loved the transport section with all the "olden days" stuff they said I used when I was a boy, cheeky little sods.

    That 'basement' transport museum was great. It could best be entered by the disabled access to the museum at ground level which was alongside all those steps. ( so just like you enter it now without walking up them) When you entered the museum, you were in a dark foyer. If you did an immediate sharp left, that was the staircase up to the other floors, to your left at 9 o'clock were the toilets and straight ahead of you on the left was the dark corridor aquarium (at the other end of that corridor were the spiders and snakes in glass cases then the other stairs up) Back top the entrance foyer and the transport museum was to your right, up about 2 or 3 steps.

    When you first entered it, the John Masons removal wagon was on your right, the Anglia was around the corner on the left. Facing it was the fire engine with its ladder on a wheel. There were bone shakers/penny farthings on the wall and railway carriages with dummies in and sometimes a film show would be on in one of them. The Lion locomotive was also on view in the far right corner. This has been in the Bootle's stores for years and will soon be in the new museum having been restored and was in the film Thunderbolt.

    Cheeky sod,you were in your nappy,I was in me short trousers....I suspect MrF was in his longies and if he's older than me and can't remember the Anglia sitting on the floor without obstruction all around then his mem is fading.

    No blower needed and who would I ring ha ha. No, we were always in there traipsing round after girls. Seeing the same old guards, the same old exhibits. Up on the 3rd floor with all the space and rockets stuff then giggling running down the stairs to where the polar bear and arctic fox was and the lion chasing the zebra was and all that, then 15 mins later back on the 3rd floor after different better looking girls to bemused looks from the guard who must have been thinking they were up here before. Getting told off for making a noise on the echoey staircases.

    Do you remember that model in the glass case on the 2nd floor, just as you came in from the stairs. It was of the pinewoods at formby with the railway line running up alongside it and you could press buttons and parts of the woods would light up. That ended up being donated to a school in formby and it stood in their foyer.

    That is so true...it really is..

    So many many memories of around that area..
    Little Wembley... 12 of us aged about 9 up the top
    of the Wellington Column.. It frightens me now, it really does...
    thinking of all the pushing and shoving on that open balcony up that column
    with just one handrail and nothing under it but fresh air and a huge drop..

    The Cafe in Lime St...remember that.. ?
    robbing the steak pies... well, we were only little tearaways..(honest..)


    Many many many ..toooooooo many memories and tales to mention..
