    I'm not surprised.
    I could usually see dim lights inside, and it always seemed to have a "For Sale" sign.

    BTW, the South Hill, the next nearest pub before Park Road, has just been demolished.

    Ye Olde House at Home and The Travellers Rest, Aigburth Vale. It's quite rare to find two pubs together nowadays. These have recently been refurbished and are now private dwellings, looking similar to the surrounding houses.

    All these decent pubs closing down in well off areas is due to them being choked with smoke. Many people just will not go in them any more.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Hi Steve

    Many thanks for confirming that the Saddle Inn, Fountains Road, Anfield, is still there.

    I misspoke earlier when I said the original handover of the Maybrick Diary between Tony Devereux and Mike Barrett took place there. The two of them did know each other from drinking together at the Saddle but that is not how the story of Mike's acquisition of the Diary was originally told.

    Checking Shirley Harrison's 1993 Hyperion edition of The Diary of Jack the Ripper, p. 4, she says that it was after Devereux fractured his hip "around Christmas 1991" and Mike would call round to do shopping and other chores for Tony, that the handover took place:

    "One day, a few months later, when he arrived at Tony's house there was a parcel wrapped in brown paper on the table.

    "'Take it. I want you to have it. Do something with it,' was all Tony said."

    The rest, as they say, is history.

    The Beehive is a cracking pub. It's a bit like the Tardis. It looks like a small pub on the outside, until you walk in. It also stretches back a bit and has a restaurant in the rear. Good, honest people drink there too. Sebo and I had a pint and a meal there last year. I was halfway through my meal when I realised I left my camera 20 minutes before in the Bar area. I ran back there in a panic and the camera was gone. By this time, I was bricking it! "Are you looking for a camera, luv?" came a voice from behind the bar. One of the customers handed it in to the staff. I couldn't thank the person enough who handed it in

    Hello Dave

    Good to hear about the happy ending to the story of your mislaid camera in the bar of the Beehive, Paradise Street. It's certainly heartwarming and reassuring to know there are still some honest people!

    Thanks for the picture of the Swan, Dave, and the others, of course.
    Happy memories.
    I used to belong to the Merseyside Postcard Club, and we had our monthly meetings there for a few years.
    (That was when there was a chippy over the road in Seymour Street).
    After which we met at the YMCA, and finally at the Bluecoat Chambers.

    A selection...


    Broadgreen Road, Old Swan This scene is so much improved since those tenements went! I wonder how old this pub really is; Apparently, it was started when the turnpike between Liverpool and Warrington and Manchester was built (now the A57). This was a popular stop off for Stagecoaches which probabbly secured trade at the bar and has done ever since, but in another form of a Stagecoach!


    Prescot Road, Old Swan And opposite the Old Swan pub, is the Red House which is evidently a little newer than the previous establishment.


    Edge Lane Drive, Broadgreen The Gardners Arms is at the bottom of Broadgreen Road and is around the point where the old Broadgreen Village used to be. Most of that was swept away when the area became heavily suburbanised with the arrival of Queens Drive and Edge Lane Drive.
