    The first 2 pics - are they taken at Oglet shore ?
    Don't know about the middle row of pics, but the gate posts - is that a side entrance to Calderstones park ?
    Homeleigh - is it one of the houses in Cressington ?
    The last pic looks like the road heading towards Garston. Aigburth rd ?

    The last one certainly is Aigburth Road. - exactly opposite the Aigburth pub - the carvery there is my nephews favorite place.

    The nicer, older Aigburth got pulled down and the newer pub built on the old bowling green when the road got widened into a dual carriageway.

    Our newsagent had the last store on that block, and just behind the yellow/blue banner was the local Lotus dealer. In the 70's when I had my Lotus Elan, I would buy parts there to take back to the US - the trans-Atlantic price mark-up was quite amazing - 2 to 3 times on the smaller stuff!

    Is the wall segment on South Mosseley Hill Rd?

    This whole area was a large estate at one time, and some of the solid walls that marked the boudaries still remain - S. Mosseley Rd was a major boundary of one of the estates.

    The third one, Batty's Dairy, backs on to Sefton Park, opposite the T.A. centre on Aigburth Road. It was probably one of several that used to exist in the area, where cows were kept in a back yard and taken to the parks to graze during the day.

    The last one is also definitely Aigburth Road, but further south. You can see the Gulshan Indian Restaurant if you zoom in - a very good one!
