    Default The Cornmarket.

    Here's one I snapped this evening.

    It's in a little road opposite the Slaughterhouse.

    I got a few Liverpool Pubs yesterday, Three of them worse for wear, and one of them in the finest bit of health...


    King Edward Pub, Roberts Street Hard to think that this pub is worth £3m! I used to think that this pub should be conserved, but looking at it now, It has no real merit about it and the land could be used for something like a nice tower block. Having said that, the location isn't exactly ideal. You have two major roads surrounding two sides of the site, and the nearest bus service is varibly in-frequent. Tricky one really!


    The Eldonian?, Vauxhall Road/Eldon St, Vauxhall Hard to think that this and many pubs alike were once the centre of the community. Just shows how things change over time ay? Actually, this pub still has most of it's fixtures and fittings left in it; I could see it all through the un-drawn window as I walked past!

    EDIT: This pub is (or was) called "The Glass House" as seen on Page 2 of the "How Liverpool used to be" thread.


    Pub on Mere Lane/Heyworth Street, Everton I must confess that I have fogotten the title of this pub which stands in the shadow of Everton Library! But what a nice looking pub this is! All that mock-tudor detail looks great on this building and is something which would be greatly missed if anything were to happen to it.




    The Granton Pub, Granton Street/Breckfield Road, Breckfield I bet there were many a laugh in here once! But I think that the bottom image sums up what devistation this part of the city has endured. Breckfield was once a thriving community with a real community spirit. Now, estates surround one side of Breckfield Road, whilst on t'other side, terraces are derelict and waiting to be pulled down. I think that Breckfield Regeneration need to look at themselves and think about what they are doing. I think that they are going about this in the wrong way. It isn't the terraces that need demolishing, it's the estates. True, the terraces need a bit of tidy-ing up, but demolision isn't the answer. They aren't doing this area any favours by demolising swathes of streets that are now derelict. If anything, they are putting Breckfield at a larger disadvantage.

    On that note, I will get me coat!

    I very rarely stay in a pub for more than 2 pints and love crawls round old traidtional pubs. Went down Vauxhall Road after a match recently, must have taken in 6 or 7 pubs and ended up in the Vauxhall Vaults on Vauxhall Road near Tithebarn St. About ten years ago I did a Scottie Road crawl, there nust have been 9 or 10 pubs then but sadly only 3 are left.

    Hi steH,
    I am trying to trace a great uncle fred Fitzgerald who had a pub called the "Liver" My dad said they lived near Scotland road. I met a woman who a few years ago and she said her late husband of 2 months had played in a pub they called Fitzer's could that be where they are now.
    any ideas

    Hi lord edward
    I know of a pub called the "Liver" but it`s on the corner of South Road in
    Crosby, also a "Fitzies" on the corner of Latham Street and Commercial Road.
    pubs were called by the people that ran them in the old days.

    Sadly yes as the density of housing reduces and staying in becomes the new going out. There are some areas of the city though where the number of pubs is still healthy and very few close, County Road for example.
