    Nice one Ged, cracking photos. Keep them coming.

    Brilliant pictures Ged bringing back memories.
    Early 80's Coopers was the first stop for us thirsty sailors after we'd been to the "Pool" on Mann Island to collect our "Pool Money". Well it was a long walk to our next stop The Mona so we needed a break on the way.
    The Coronation played a big part in the grieving rites of our family over the years as we always ended up there following funerals, plus my Mum worked behind the bar there at some stage in the distant past.

    More memories.........


    Further landmarks that have bitten the dust and lost forever.

    From the inside looking out. Colliers on London Road an institution for the locals of L3 and further afield in the 60s and 70. It had one of those pipe systems for sending your payment upstairs to the offices in a container that went via a system of tubes - and you had to wait likewise for your change back. Polished cabinets with drawers for socks and underware, a bit like Grace Brothers on Are you being served.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    And how it looked in 1956 from the entrance on London Road.




    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    The boarding houses on Springfield off St Anne Street just prior to demolition. Manny Charles betting office was just here to the right of them where my cousins was race up from Gerard Gardens to put their bets on, on a saturday afternoon. This was taken around the time I first took notice of what we were about to lose as this area was once prosperous with Georgian Merchant mansion houses and the Judges lodgings just further along used to have bowling greens to the rear. Queen Victoria and Albert had even stayed at one just around the corner and their heads are carved on the door posts detailing to commemorate the occasion.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    Marmaduke street is just one of a swathe of streets demolished from Edge Lane to Wavertree Road, seen here in its last throes.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    Apart from Aspinalls shown earlier, the next row of premises along Moss Street are also no more including Hartleys Auctioneers.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us




    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    The old with the new springing up from Hertford Road in Bootle where a mass dereliction then new build programme is taking place.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us




    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    Park Road collapsed building which was demolished due to safety issues a little later.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    Commutation Row. Build and named at the time of the Commutation Tax regarding daylight (bricked up windows scenarios etc) this row of premises included 4 pubs at one time, The County (aka Peppers), The Hare & Hounds, The Court House and Phase 2 in the old Burtons building on the corner of London Road. These were well frequented by the nearby tenement dwellers so had a captive audience for a lot of the time. Commutation Plaza which now exists here was built in design and colour with some sympathy to its illustrious neighbours and contains modern apartments with a cracking view.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us




    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    The Granton on Robson street. Again, part of another mass clearance programme including another couple of pubs that will feature later on as there are many more Lost Forever pics still to come.



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    ---------- Post added at 12:22 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:17 PM ----------

    Yes. Originally called the County Hotel, it was always nicknamed/known as Peppers and then they put an actual sign up Peppers. I've got a few pics of inside there as it's one of the pubs on the local walkabout where my family, relatives and friends drank.

    Mark, sorry, don't know where your post went when I was trying to include a pic of Peppers there for you, but there it is above. Cheers,

    Ged.

    Excellent photos Ged

    So I assume it was called the County with reference to the County Sessions House opposite?

    Cheers George. I was put onto a site dedicated to the Town and Country planning and a chap there is letting me know which planning applications are put in and accepted, it also details what is about to be demolished so I have been busy the last couple of weekends believe me as the pics don't look the same with the boards around them. Luckily, I already had a number of pics relating to what is about to be no more but thanks for the heads up.

    Wow Gnash, well fancy all those pics meaning something to you, that's what it's all about mate. Not bad considering we're only part way through, i'm sure there will be some more memories to unlock, knowing you, it'll concern a few pubs or music venues.

    The flats running down from the Coach & Horses are there now, No. 33 would have been the last one on the block just beforeThe seven day Adventist Church [The Church Still stands].. Never seen a pic down that side of Kenny prior to The flats though.

    Yes, the advertising hoarding for Autolux was on the premises of 2-4 Low Hill (building long gone leaving the Coach and horses building all alone), however, the actual premises were a little along Kenny itself, I'll dig them out.

    In 1958 Directory the Autolux was given as No. 11 Kensington then it jumps straight to to 33 Kensington, the one Zapps mentioned ,and on that date it was down as Mrs. Sarah Marion Collier-, -Licensed Broker.
