    Thanks to Ged who spent many hours trailing the archives at the records office to find these fine photos. Many unseen before. I have added a few others along with them.

    Enjoy.

    What a waste to allow this building to go.

    Great Spike & Ged

    Another marvellous episode in our great councils history of destroying something worth hanging on to. (Ok I know the Luftwaffe damaged it but it was 7 years after that it was demolished) I don't know why the Germans bothered to bomb our city - our council's have done a good enough job destroying it...

    Thanks all, a great addition to the site Tony. I believe the file is now out on the open shelves at the temporary LRO.

    Wonderful collection of images of a magnificent building. A sad loss to the city.

    The other pub in Canning Place was called The Custom House, it was close to the old shipping pool. But I dont know when that closed down.

    There was also a pub in Canning Place called The Custom House, it was right next to the old seamans pool. I dont know if that was still open in the 80s it was managed by pal of mine Jimmy Mcaliney, Jimmy later went on to manage the Bluebell in Huyton
