    Thumbs up Old Swan and surrounding area's

    Hi all, does anyone have any "OLD" Old Swan photo's / Video footage from bygone days. I have some video from the 50's from a Tram Video, which by the way shows other areas too, Broadway, Dovecote, Page Moss, Everton etc ... I have the link for a part of the video on Youtube, which goes from Fairfield to Dovecote ( Prescot Road )...

    Thanks for that trip back in time.I often went on the No 10 tram,I left the Swan in 1961 when we had the Regent and the Curzon to go to,passing through now it just seems smaller than I remember it.

    I liked watching that, anyone remember the old tram shed that stood on the site of the Netto at the corner of Green Lane and Prescot Roads. There was an old tram in there till the mid to late 80s that could be seen from the top deck of a bus.

    You get a brief glimpse of it on the left hand side of the road, 8 seconds into the video. Martin
