    Looks like someone is after the lead lightning conductor
    It doesn`t lend itself to photos as it is surrounded by houses with just a 6 foot gap between

    when I was a kid, the Landlord of the Winslow Hotel in Goodison Road was Norman Greenhalgh, he used to play for Everton, His son was David.
    Think he took over the Bromborough Hotel, later.
    Remember riding our bikes around the snooker tables upstairs! [circa 1956?]

    Also nice memories of the Clock in Richmond Row, I worked in Whitneys, the Ford Garage in Scotland Road,with Billy Roberts, his Mum and Dad had the Clock.

    Lunchtime at Whitneys consisted of chips from the chippy and a visit to the Ship? next door to the garage! [late 60`s]
