    The 1st one is a picture of the Childwall Abbey taken from the lytchgate of the church over the road. A lovely clear picture!

    A view looking down the road towards the church with the Abbey on the right.

    It in the location of the QEII law courts with Trials Hotel and the Town Hall in the far back ground.

    I'll have to look the street up as its not there any more but Cable Street runs off it.

    Well done Ged. There is a street sign on the wall but I went Gozzy trying to work out what it said.

    Thanks folks. I vaguely remember it. Wasn't there a telegraph house or something on Cable st where the postmen/telegram men parked their old red bikes outside, early 70s ish.

    Yes, there was.
