    At least the building is still there so as the recent renovation of the Florrie demonstrates, it might one day be brought back to life. Fingers crossed.

    Unlike this little beauty, the Mayfair cinema less than a mile away in Aigburth Road. A naff looking Home Bargains store now occupies the site.

    You have to scroll through the clips to get to it!

    I have just looked through the memories of L8 pics (quite a few of L17 there, too) and apart from good shots of the shore before the Dingle oil jetty and the prom were built there are quite a few pictures of the Inglenook pub in Ullet Road that has now closed and is about to be rebuilt as a residential care home.

    There's also a picture of the Gaumont when it was a Top Rank bingo hall.

    The underground Dingle station is next door - still there. In the 1940-50s, many people who lived on the Dock Road, Warwick Gdns, Brunswick Gds, etc, would use the Overhead railway to visit the Gaumont.

    A large supermarket could use the building and lobby the Council/HMG to get the station back in action and on Merseyrail. That would lift the district overall and again make it a centre.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I closed as a cinema in 1973 and became a Bingo hall.

    As a kid we got a shilling on a Saturday for the Matinee 6pence to get in, and ice cream and a drink with the rest. We got a cartoon, a movie and a serial for our money, we were there for hours!!
