The picture of the #16 tram got me thinking of the school summer holidays when special tickets for children were issued.
If my memory is correct they cost a penny for four rides, we would get the # 16 to the pier head and get one of the #fives (?) to
Calderstone Park or Woolton Woods for the day. Then home on the trams in reverse order. I'm not sure about this, but think the
tickets were yellow with a large red C on the front and a place for the rides to be clipped.

More wonderful old photos Joe and Bob.. Thank you for posting, love seeing the old trams..
One of the trams advertising Cephos..that's a brand name from the past..always had Cephos powders at home...never knew what they were used for though :?
Thanks for the tram-ride memories George..same stories would be told by my lovely mum :)
Often spoke of the penny tram-rides to Woolton woods..good days had by all the children..
(Those who were fortunate enough to have a penny of course)

Was I the only one on here that bunked a tram ride by sitting on the rear bumper....till I got caught by the driver and got a smack on the head with his gauntlet gloves?? :oops: :oops:

I think the trams on Stanley Road were 16 24 and 28.

A sad memory was in the May blitz when I saw the trams lying on their sides amid the rubble.

[quote="Matt"]Hi Maureen I think the doll's hospital was on Mount Pleasant about halfway to Rodney Street.
I used to pass it every day when I used to go to Skerry's College(just for a couple of months)and
Sheila knows it well as she passed it every day for 4 years when she used to go to Notre Dame
Commercial in Maryland street.Used to be there I believe since the early 1900's.
Matt[/quote]

Hi Matt, these photo's are great, they bring back so many happy memories don't they, thank you for reminding me where the dolls hospital was, I can't remember much else,lol, but that day is still in my memory, getting on the tram with my mum, my doll wrapped in her blanket, I recall her arm had fell off and I was very upset,makes me smile when I think of it. Hope you and Sheila are well. xxx

Hi Folks

This post brings back a lot of memories. I lived in Bowden Street and Linacre Mission was at the bottom of the street with the remains of the matchworks opposite.
I was in touch with someone in Linacre Mission about two years ago trying to get some info on my boyhood mate who used to go there. They were able to give me a few details.

As a kid the matchworks bombed out site was a great adventure area albeit somewhat dangerous. I can recall quite a few bad accidents there including at least one drowning in the deep firefighting ponds. The high walls around the site were no deterrent to kids wanting to get in. Eventually they built flats on the site.
The tram depot was also a good spot to scavenge, they had huge rubbish bins just inside one of the bays that my mate and I used to scavenge in until we got spotted and chased away. If I remember correctly the Palladium Cinema was opposite.

I wish I had a dollar for every time I walked and cycled over the lift bridge, it was still there when I left in 1960.

My husband's Ascroft family had a chandlers's shop at No. 51 Linacre Road from 1890s. Still owned the building when it was damaged by bombing in WW2. Are there any photos of it? Is it still there?

This could well be a Photo of my Great Grandmother's Funeral.

Emma Chapman nee Munnerley of 12 Violet Road died aged 57 of Cardiac Failure in the Ante Room of Linacre Mission on 9th May 1920 and buried in Kirkdale Cemetery.

Apparently the Family were involved in a lot of the activities in The Mission.

An Uncle remembers there being a Family Photo of the Chapmans on a wall inside somewhere when he grew up in the 1930's

My Great Granddad William Henry Chapman signed the Pledge there and could well be in the photo of the Abstinence March
