    Default Old Swan in general

    For Martin. This is the nearest comparison I think I could get to that 1950s pic I sent you from Baden House. Prescot Road, Old Swan looking South. The biggest change is probably Tesco having replaced St. Oswald House tenements.




    Then subsequent zoom settings. One closer and 2 further away.

    Then panning to the right (West) - the old cinema in full. PhilG might like this one but there is a bit of 'the setting' sun glare which couldn't be helped through the window unfortunately. Still can't quite see Gnomies house on it either.





    Then panning to the left (East) - the rooftops.

    great shots Ged
    always nice to see an area from a different vantage point.
    never noticed there was such a dip in the road at street level either.

    excellent view of the old Curzon? too, my 2nd fave old cinema building after The Abbey.
    Proud Scouser, with a dabbling of Welsh and Irish.

    bore yourself silly at my Flickr page...anorak central!

    great pics Ged, god they bring back memories, my dad was born and bred in Sunbeam road Old Swan, I used to spend all my summer holidays there at my grandads house, everyone was so friendly and at night when I was supposed to be asleep I used to sit by the open bedroom window and listen to all the neighbours chatting in the evening as they would all meet in the street and catch up on the latest gossip, brilliant times!!!

    Almost exactly the same things I would have said.
    I'd have added "One cinema from another" because Baden House is on the exact site of the (New) Regent.
    The (Old) Regent is still standing (Kwik Save).
