    Re: Aigburth Vale: Nowadays there is a small half-building inbetween the two buildings under consideration as the Police Station. This small building appears to fill a gap shown on the 1908 map. The map writes Police Station across the two properties. Garstonians may be interested in this one, as it is right on the Toxteth Park/Garston Township boundary.
    yes the crappy 'some kind of red' is somehow worse looking in bright sunlight. only decent red bits are the dragons!

    That would be the Hope Street building?
    The former School for the Blind had been the Merseyside Trade Centre and Unemployed Centre (or some such similar name) since the 1980s.

    Does anyone know what is happening to this building?
    I walk past it everyday and it makes me so sad to see it in such disrepair.

    just been scouring on of my old street maps from the late 1960's and it says Pol Sta at Duke St/Nelson St/Berry St.

    must admit I walked past there today and don't recall seeing anything , can anyone shed any light please?

    There was a police station in Duke St. the front door was up a few steps, I remember seeing a cop propelling someone up them with his feet hardly touching. Where have the real cops gone?

    Quincy, It was on the south side of Duke St, top half. Can't remember exactly where Chris48 might know or Phillip.

    You're not thinking of the Bridewell in Campbell Street, just off Duke Street?
    I'm sure you know that that closed comparitively early.
    I'm not an expert on police stations, but do have a good collection of old maps, and I can't see one in Duke Street, but I've no maps of that area from the 1950s or 1960s.
    There was a fire station right next to the last surviving back-to-back houses in Duke Street, and the Duke Street/Berry Street area was a cooperage for yonks.

    Re Cuffs: I've just checked a pic from Jan 2007, and some of the brickwork was painted red. So in one year it's been painted twice. I guess the cream colour wasn't popular.

    http://www.narpo-merseyside.org.uk/framephotos.htm
    I had a little look at the NARPO website and found under Miscellaneous Photographs, a small pic of the one in Aigburth Vale. It is the building to the right of the small building that is there today. Here's an excerpt:
    Aigburth Vale Police Station. Described in the 1905 Chief Constables Annual report as:
    'A make-shift station for part of Garston sub-district.

    Duke Street: This Police Station also gets a mention on the NARPO website.

    Those two doors are still there today. The NARPO website describes them: This is all that is left of the old Seel Street Transport Section garage.

    The website also mentions another Duke Street building which was between Cornwallis Street/Kent Street. There is a Sapporo restaurant there today (or it's where the flats are today, just before). I'll check as thinking about it, the restaurant is around where the old corporation yard, used for storing old street-lamps, used to be.

    They were a few doors away from the White House.
    The fire station I mentioned earlier was behind these houses at the left, and Dukes Terrace (back-to-backs) were (and are) behind at the right.
    Just off the photo to the right was the concealed entrance to Dukes Terrace.
    I've found I do have a 1950s map which identifies the fire station as a Police Garage, which it still was in the 1968 Kelly's directory (which doesn't mention a police station).
    This is also the same area as identified on the above map.
    Opposite was the Corporation Yard Marky describes.
    It had earlier been the H/Q of the Liverpool Gas Company.

    I remember going down that concealed entrance to take a pic of Dukes Terrace. Hubby wondered what on earth I was doing ,as did 2 Chinese blokes who were stood at the back of a shop having a ciggie.
    Had to clamber over rubbish and rubble to get to it at the time.

    I took lots of photos of Duke Street and through that entry, and the backs of the houses, in the 1980s.
    Unfortunately, I had a flood and 2 plastic boxes of photos got soaked.
    They're all stuck together, including the negatives.
    I've tried soaking them apart, but nothing works.

    I did post these in another thread, but in case you didn't see them there
