Wow Joe, how the city has changed. Do not ever remember a car park across the road from Marks. However, you say the picture is 1947, I was not born until 1949. I do remember the trams and have one of the last tickets issued for the tram. I found it amongst Dad's memorabilia after he died. He had loads of stuff like that which he had to hide from Mum as she was an absolute neat freak and threw everything out. He still had a newspaper so yellow with age with the first man on the moon. I brought all his stuff including old Everton magazines home to Canada otherwise it would have found it's way to the bin labelled "junk" by my Mum!!! Now it is collecting dust in my basement!
