    Steve. St Paul's Square was a Welsh stronghold in Liverpool back when the Welsh were building houses along the length of County Road and in Dingle.

    Never one to churn out the same old, same old scene, if you know what I mean

    Here's St Paul's 1769-1931

    I've been glad to bring this to someone's attention whose mother played as a child around those very same railings.

    Superb photos Ged.

    I can't quite get my bearings with the Knotty Ash picture though. Is that Springfield Park?

    I wondered why there were no glorious photographs of the Jam Butty Mines.

    Default Knotty Ash Pic

    I suspect this is not Knotty Ash but Broadgreen.
    I think the "Park", bottom right, is "The Green", the buildngs above the Green are "Highfield School"
    To the Right - Broadgreen Hospital, with Queens Drive splitting them from top middle to bottom right.

    Its just guess

    The LRO have been known to get things wrong, unlike Ged
