    Default Brythen Street c1965

    Two photographs of the same block on Brythen Street, with the Playhouse clearly visible in the first photograph to fix the location. A bit of a pub crawler’s dream – with The Old Royal next to Quinn’s Oyster Bar, Roberts (bird dealers), The Dart and The Old Dive on the opposite corner. I have already [...]

    Absolutely fantastic those Colin.

    I don't recognise it either. I don't remember those buildings by the Playhouse.

    Really great stuff again Colin, many thanks.

    That bottom one has the bookshop that you've shown us before on the extreme right and on the left the Magic Clock - next to the one that looks as if it's maybe getting painted.

    "The destruction of the network of streets and squares to make way for the new market, road widening and (abandoned) civic centre scheme was one of Liverpool’s most significant architectural losses."
