    Default London Road Photographs

    All images have been downloaded from the Liverpool Record Office Search Archive Catalogues. Also the supporting text has been copied below:

    Image 1)
    This photograph [1900] shows shop fronts for Peacock & Kay (117) and Owen Owen (119-121). Peacock & Kay's shop window advertises that they sell 'Novelties' and Christmas presents. Owen Owen's shop window advertises a sale. Printing on the windows of the shop describes items sold by Owen Owen, for example Bonnets, Hats, Linens, Corsets, Dresses. Frameworks can be seen outside each shop, suspended just below the shop name - presumably these are for awnings.

    Image 2)
    A view of Commutation Row taken from the top of the Wellington Column. There is a very clear view of the shop fronts on Commutation Row which have since been demolished. From left to right, from the corner of Islington the County Hotel, H. Abraham's tailor, British Workman Public House Co. Ltd. cocoa rooms, Dairy Outfit Co. Ltd. dairy engineers, Lawless & Co.Ltd. dairy utensil agents, Stanbury & Co. cycle manufacturers, the London City and Midland Bank, the Fitzgerald's Hare and Hounds Hotel, Waddington & Sons piano makers and, finally, the Court House pub. The billiard hall on Islington can be seen in the background on the left.

    Image 3)
    A photograph of shops on London Road that sustained damage from the riots which followed the 1919 police strike. 'Owen Owen' is on the corner of the street on the left. The ground floor has been boarded up, but there are signs to say that the shop is open for business. The shop next door to this is F.J. Batchelor mantles.

    Image 4)
    A photograph [c.1900-1920] of barrows belonging to street traders on London Road. There are shops with awnings on the left hand side of the street. The barrows are parked at the side of the road outside the shops. The pavements are packed with shoppers and pedestrians. In the background two trams can be seen coming along the road.

    Image 5)
    A photograph [1936] of the the tenement flats on Bayhorse Lane taken from the rear of London Road. The tenements are three storeys high and the second floor has a balcony which is surrounded by railings. They look as though they may be quite new. On the ground floor there is a yard in front of them, and in one yard there is a mangle.

    Image 6)
    A photograph [1947] of a drinking fountain on London Road. Part of one side of the fountain is broken. There are shops and another square building surrounded by a fence behind the fountain.

    Image 7)
    A photograph [1950] of a concrete bus shelter near the corner of Norton Street (which was just off London Road) and Kempston Street.

    Image 8)
    The laying of tram tracks at the bottom of London Road, c.1900. The Legs of Man Pub can be seen above. Notice: three-legged Manx signs have been incorporated into the window design.
