    Spot on,sergeants and higher ranks were allowed to carry sticks tucked under their arms-or for pointing at traffic etc. They had rank stripes on the uniform much like the army uniforms of the day

    Hey Joe

    It's amazing that when you walk behind the Town Hall the world becomes all black and white....

    Fine work as ever, Joe. Enjoyed.

    Cheers

    Looking at some of my old Xmas pics and realised how much better Church St looked in 2008 without the sheds and stalls, This year there is not much colour in the lights and I don`t remember any nativity scenes in the lights.It mustn`t be P C

    Excellent views, Joe. I love those sloping streets and the view of the Mersey in the distance.

    Great those Joe. My wife's nan lived in Netherby street, another of those, in fact her dad was born there. They're pretty steep, you need a good handbrake and you can hear the trains rumbling underneath the house. Great view over the river from the bottom though.

    Thought it would be worth "quoting" these fine pics to bring em' to the front again.
