    Thanks.

    Some more pics of Bootle.



    Yesterday in Ulveston, the birthplace of Stan Laurel as Arthur Stanley Jefferson, Ken Dood unveiled a Laurel and Hardy statue at last. Is this Bootle's very own tribute on Oriel Road. 'Oriel and Hardie house'.




    A barge being brought out of a warehouse after restoration in Bedford Place. Is that a prediction of today's scoreline I see there - or was it done in 95?




    So after going over the canal, we come to the Bedford Road underpass taking us under the rail line and road.




    Looking from Keble Road across to Hertford Street.




    Looking up Keble Road.




    The corner of Stanley Road and Wadham Road.




    The row of shops and flats from Wadham rd looking South.




    The row of shops and flats from Wadham rd looking North.




    More old and new together.




    New foundations go in where it stood on the South East side of Wadham road across the other side of Stanley Road.




    Looking down from Stanley Road.




    Old property on Lodwick Street, just down from the Woodhouse pub.




    Old Georgian stock still in use on Raleigh Street.




    The Bootle Irish club on Derby Road.




    And down Howe Street to the docks.




    Likewise, down Effingham Street.




    Norton Scrap, Derby Road.




    A few oldies taken a while back to finish off.

    The Strand Tavern.






    St. Georges Tavern.





    The Bedford.

    I'm just too self conscious to take pics most of the time, it's only when I'm on holiday or somewhere strange that I really do it

    Wear a beret, striped jumper and string of garlic around your neck and people will just think you're a tourist.

    Probably better going for the fat american bloke in shorts and tight t-shirt look. I think I can pull that one off with ease and I won't get beat up for being french !!!

    Default Bootle

    You've done a really interesting and comprehensive set of Bootle pics there,
    Ged. Many thanks.
    Although living off Melrose Road, Kirkdale, which was only a stone's throw
    away from Bootle, I can't say that I was familiar with it. The railway in
    between effectively cut off all contact, the only means of access being at
    the Kirky Station end to the north and Stanley Road to the south. The
    result we never got any further into Bootle than the Commodore at one end
    when we went to the pictures or Hawthorn Road Rec every Saturday
    afternoon when we went to play footie in the winter and cricket in the
    summer. I can also remember the Bedford Road area because I had to go through it four times a day for 5 years to get to Alsop HS.
    The only vivid memory I have of it was of an area of wasteland we called
    the 'brickies' which provided an alternative path to get to County Road and
    a huge Fairground set up there one summer which kept us distracted for
    what seemed ages. Anybody remember it? It's probably long since been
    built over by now.
    And one other thing about it, I always thought it had a rather strange name!

    Stan H.

    You're aged about 35 aren't you Smurfy. Thought you'd not been online today.

    Sorry about the poor quality of this image. It's a screenshot taken from Alan Davies' Teenage Revolution shown on the 23rd September. It's from the early 80s and shows Bootle library, with the Triad and the old Electricity Pylon things over the canal.. The dude in the centre is on his way to the Job Centre

    Any of you Bootleites got this book. Very well put together, loads of old street party and family photos. 120 pages - well done Allan Boyle.

    Very true, Pubs just don't appeal to me. Would rather sit under the bridge with a bottle of white lightning
