    Here it is, listed as 119a Stanley Road and 101 Latham Street, it was known locally as Kitty's. This view from 1908 was when the pub was managed by Michael Brosnan. Listed 1970, this site is now open land. Police report 1892 says 'Permitting drunkenness, dismissed'

    Great stuff. My old das family was kirkdale too. I was up with my cousin who has now moved to Crosby hearing some great stories from Kitty's and the mayhem they used to get up to in Kirkdale.

    I notice that the image on your account is of the cavern. I remember hearing that he played there as well. His band, The Dusty Road Ramblers, played there supported the beatles once.

    Don`t remember Kittys always went in the Lathom at the bottom of Lathom St on sundays for country an western nights,
    The Dusty road ramblers were Hank Walters backing group.
    My favourite pub in the area was Fred Lowes {Union Vaults} at the top of Sandhills Lane,always sure of a good sing song around the piano.
    After moving to Kirkby I always travelled down to to meet my brother in the Hamlet on Kirkdale Rd.This was the norm then, anybody moving to Kirkby, always made their way back to their old neighbourhood pubs for quite a few years.We had some good sing songs going home on the last bus, it was like a "chara"

    My only memories of the Union were stumbling in there one dinner hour from work c1985 and a stripper was on (we diodn't know - honest)

    She was full of baby oil and done a forward roll and came up with all fag ends and spent matchsticks stuck to her. Class
