    Default Former L'Alouette, Lark Lane.

    Which is French for Lark has been renamed.
    The Siddeley Street sign has been replaced.
    It was one of very few blue street signs in Liverpool, of which two remain off Lark Lane.

    Default Rare blue (and now, partly black!) street sign off Lark Lane.

    This is on the side wall of the former Masonic pub.

    Thank you, Max.
    I never liked going to pubs at weekends.

    The Negresco isn't called Alma de Negresco, so I'm not sure now if it's the same firm.
    Does anyone know for sure?

    Thanks for confirming that, Max.

    Presumably Liverpool City Council have given permission for these alterations.
    Unfortunately, I've no confidence in either LCC or English Heritage, as both the Negresco and the former Elephant in Woolton are in Conservation Areas, and the Elephant is even Listed!

    I've said it before, and I'l say it again.

    Lovely part of town. I lived on Livingstone Ave, off Lark Lane, for a year in my student days. That's when I started biking too cos of the hassle trying to get the bus to uni from there (compared to living on campus the year before that).

    Hardly went to the Lark Lane pubs actually cos at the time my mates were living up by Smithdown Rd so I always went up to there instead. T'was a great place to live, except trying to get across the racetrack into Sefton Park each day

    I lived in a flat off Lark Lane and was there when Kieth's opened. The 25 bus was very good for getting into the city but they stopped that for some strange reason. The Albert was always a favorite place to go, I was shocked as to how run down it was last time I went there some years ago.
    I read a book years ago called something like ''film stars don't die in Liverpool'' it was a true story about an aging Hollywood star and was set in and around Lark Lane.
    I can also remember Bernard Hill running around in his trendy dungarees when he lived in the Everyman community house on the corner of Waverly Road and Ivanhoe Road.

    I suppose the present owners will argue that they only painted what had already been painted!

    The actress in "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool" was Gloria Grahame.

    Thinking back, I'll take the rose-tinted specs off, the heating didn't work in that place and it was a bluddy cold winter and the landlord couldn't care less (after months of pestering to fix it, he brought us... ... a new microwave )

    But apart from cold it was a lovely place
