    Default Dingle and Toxteth

    Agreed, Admiral street was on the Dingle ward boundary with Prince's Park. The term Toxteth has come more into use these days largely since the 1981 riots. Technically the Dingle and Princes Park are both part of Toxteth anyway. Of course a Dingle is just a small wooded valley which would not apply to the area now called Dingle.

    These days the City Council with their district signs have tried to delineate the Dingle/ Toxteth boundary as Park Rd. In historical terms, Toxteth went from Parliament Street to Otterspool Park. Hope this helps

    Having 'DJ' for initials might be a step in the right direction.

    The commonest name in Liverpool and elsewhere is probably...

    I have a Jones living next door to me. My real surname is unusual as their are only 3 in the Liverpool phone book. and theyre all relatives.
