    What's happening? Is the whole building being demolished, or just the left hand side? If everything is being demolished, that's disgraceful.

    I know part of it fell down but they're demolishing the rest which it looks to me as if it could have been preserved.

    I loved that pub. Especially in the winter with it's coal fire. Such a warm atmosphere.

    The Lamb Inn

    Look across the High Street at the impressive brick facade of The Lamb, with its archway leading to a yard and beer garden at the back. Often described as a 'Georgian coaching inn', the present building dates, in fact, from the 1850s. Although Baines's Lancashire Directory of 1825 lists the Lamb - together with the Coffee House and the Thatched House Tavern - it seems that the pub at that time was relatively small.

    The brick archway of the present Lamb was not used for stage-coaches to pass through, but for William Dilworth's horse-drawn omnibuses which plied between Wavertree and the centre of Liverpool. Bus travel in those days was for the wealthy few. The single fare is said to have been 6d (6 old pence), which was well out of the reach of ordinary people.

    In the days when many people were unable to read, pubs often took their name from an easily-recognisable symbol which could be displayed outside. Thus, in the early nineteenth century, township meetings in Wavertree were advertised as taking place 'at the Sign of the Lamb'. Nowadays there are other considerations, like brand image and corporate identity. In 1996 Allied Domecq, the owners of The Lamb, proposed to change its name to the Ferry & Firkin, following its transfer to their Firkin Brewery Co. subsidiary. Eventually - after protests by the Wavertree Society and others - the company agreed to allow the traditional name to remain on the front of the building. The new 'sub-title' is the Fold (as in sheep-fold) & Firkin: rather more relevant than the three-mile distant Ferry 'cross the Mersey!

    Wavertree Society

    I do not know if the pub will be demolishing. If u see the The Lamb, only one small building, one part, is broken. So, I hope that it will be restore again.

    I think probably Marie blocked out the face.
    It's the best thing to do when posting a picture on the internet - not everyone might take kindly if they suddenly came across their mug - or someone else said they'd seen them

    It's best to block out the face and then you are covered if you use the pic without that person's permission.

    If somebody is in a public place, and they appear on a photo, there's nothing they can do about it.
    What about journalists talking to camera and the public are walking by?

    My experience in St John's Gardens (when I was challenged about what I was snapping) was because those gardens are owned by the Council, so strictly speaking aren't a "public place" (which sounds wrong, but it isn't).

    Hi Philip

    Sorry to be pedantic about it, but if the Council owns the place doesn't that mean that the citizens of Liverpool, i.e., the rate payers own it, which makes it a "public place"?
