    I can post pics of what it looks like now. I live at the bottom of Gray St. Got a couple of pics on my pc I'll post them up.
    do you know which corner the shop was on?

    I have 3 local history books specifically about Bootle, but there's no info in there.
    went out at tea time and took these...

    first lot all 'little' Gray St - no idea why little, as it's longer than the bit the other side of Knowsley Rd

    these are the 2 most obvious ex-shops
    corner of Warton Terrace/Warton St/Gray St



    corner of Prior St


    possible
    corner of Pope St


    view from Akenside St towards Knowsley Rd


    half way up there are houses missing , bombed during the war. A shop may have been here...


    other side of Knowsley looking towards Peel Rd. no obvious signs of a shop along here. there is a swathe of old houses missing, again bombed during the war.


    Peel Rd towards Knowsley


    if I spot any v old residents I'll quiz them, see if they lived around there at the time the shops were in use.

    hope that's of some interest to you

    you're very welcome. I can see Gray Street from my front door, so it was no bother really.

    Default Gray Street

    Hiya Quincy I spoke to my friend about the pictures and he replied

    The shop as I believe it is still open called 'Lesley's' and apparently has graffitti on the wall by someone called Rachel. The significance of this is that my mate - surname Marriott- used to live there when a child. His wife is called Lesley and his daughter's name is Rachel - - wierd coincidence !

    do you know what shop he is talking about?

    Hope that makes things a bit clearer

    sorry it's taken an age to upload pix tonight. Finally got the scan up I needed.

    Right then here we go, shop today


    Knowsley Rd 1930. No idea if it was Marriotts then. it's at the top middle on right of shop with white awning


    tried a close up but name isn't clear, can just make out Blackledges bread sign. the John Hughes store is now the post office.


    that's the best I can do at the mo
