    I doubt it very much.
    The policy with the old buildings on Park Road seems to be to wait till they start falling down, then demolish just those.
    Eventually, they will all be demolished (but it could take a few more years).
    Like the gap between the Savings Bank and the pub.
    I know the date the bank closed because I'd just moved to the Dingle in Feb 1991 and opened an account there.
    They didn't tell me they were going to close in a couple of weeks!
    I'll sort out a couple of photos I took of that stretch in about 1992.

    I can remember a launderette and a hairdressers around that area.
    Although the stone-work states 'Liverpool Savings Bank' it was the TSB when I remember it. I'm sure there are still other buildings of the 'Liverpool Savings Bank' surviving today...Scotland road I think was the Northern Branch. I'm sure there is another branch...Smithdown road or Garston. Of the old Liverpool Savings Bank buildings the Southern branch (Park rd) looks the worst. Another part of Liverpools' history left to rot.
    I was around the back of these buildings (Malta st) last week, and they look even worse from there. Most of the 60's flats around there will be demolished aswell, eventually.

    Wonder if anyone recalls a wool shop - more or less opposite St Patricks church? I knew the people who ran the shop and I had a Saturday job there.
    I'd love to see a picture of it to refresh my memory.
    Not sure if that block of shops has gone now. It's a long time since I went past that way.
    There were steps going up to the wool shop. I can't remember what other shops were on either side.

    hi lindy
    those shops are not there. I am prob too young to remember them though.
    I will ask my mum about it, cos she was brought up around st patrick's.
    If it is where I think you mean, there are new apartments there now.
    Do you mean by the priests house?

    Not sure which one you mean, Kev.
    Is it on one of the 2 photos?

    BTW, the one with the tall chimneys is the Liverpool Savings Bank/TSB.
