    Cazneau Street flats hailed from the mid 1950s but bit the dust in August last year - doesn't seem over a year ago. Had a few school friends that lived here. The white building was the Denbigh Castle pub up until a few years back. Managed by the Clarkes during the 60s and 70s, Joe and Paula Byrne then took it over and it was my local in the 90s. They later added a shop on the wasteland between it and Bishop Goss school. These flats have featured on pics taken by Yo's own Gregs dad and Eric James during the 60s and 70s.

    The JMU building on Clarence Street. This was just a week before the boards went up around it as I got the nod. Books such as Freddy O'Connors' 'It all came tumbling down' influence me in the 1980s to get taking these shots in the last 20 odd years. I'm amazed since the internet to see the great shots recorded by Liverpool's photographers in the 50s, 60s 70s and 80s.

    The oldest Georgian terrace that remained on Dale street dating from the 1700s. It was listed though was more like listing. I'd always said the side elevation into Cheapside was billowing out and there'd already been a steel plate used to pull it in but was failing. This corner has now been demolished.

    The 1960s Lime Street Concourse pictured from St. Johns multi storey car park. This, like many locations whose demise was well publicised were photographed by many.

    Coopers Emporium. One of our Sunday afternoon walkabout places down that way. Previously in the 80s I'd drank upstairs in the Kingston, accessed by the door around the corner in James Street, part of the Kingston Hotel.

    My jaunts to collect pub images before they all vanished, inspired by my old neighbour Joe Devine took me far and wide including Halewood, Kirkby and Crosby amongst others. Here on Childwall Valley Road was the Coronation.

    Cracker pics again Ged. Well done getting all these places.

    (By the way, I met a guy today in Nogzy who knew your dad and family very well - McKrieth his name is. I told him I would pass on his regards).
