    Here's a nice panorama shot (that I wish I had taken!) from a 1983 postcard. (photograph by Peter Hagerty, copyright Light Impressions, Liverpool)

    Great photo Phillip, I have one similar. It mightn't mean much to many, but having grown up just around in Gerard Gardens, the fountain area was my playground. Tick on the giant steps (of the Wellington Column), going up Mill Lane at the side of the Walker Art Gallery to look down at the 'giants grave' - another old folklore. Traipsing around the Museum and Walker many weekends...

    There were 3 pubs there. The County (Peppers), The Court House and The Hare & Hounds. The Burtons building on the corner of London road became the John Lennon bar in the early 90s. The rest of the block was delapidated by then which had been a jewellers, pipe shop, book shop etc in their time.

    Keep em coming Phillip. Love your tram ride to Dingle book by the way.

    What a fantastic pic. Thanks. When I lived in Hughes St, we used to walk down there to play.

    Childwall C of E Primary School (my Primary School) on Woolton Road.

    Demolished before my eyes in 1989 - an utter crime.

    More info can be found at my website:

    The Transport boxing club used to be just around the Islington corner aswell. Was the bookshop the last thing to close??
    The Giants grave! Used to love going to see that. Is it an air raid shelter?
    That pic of the Albert dock with the demolished buildings in the foreground and the transit sheds behind is boss.

    The bookshop was about the last shop, but didn't Pepper's continue more-or-less to the end?
    The Transport Boxing Club is on another photo I've got.
    I'll post it later.

    Nice one mate, trained there in the late 80s for a bit.
    Think you are right about peppers because I remember people coming out of stay behinds when I was walking out of town for a cab on a Saturday.

    Oh good, another mystery solved - I just found a photo of this street and was wondering where it was. This photo is from the early 90s, I think.
