    In the black and white piccie the tower on the Spofforth pub can be seen. Behind it is the Microwave tower of the Gas Board offices. I worked there at that time. Many an afternoon had been spent in the Spofforth.

    The houses were glazed yellow brick. most are still around today. The Gas Board offices are no more. Still there but unused.

    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    the row nearest the ice cream van was demolished around 1973/74 as part of slum clearance
