Early view of Field Lane, pre 'Comet' Store days, good one Mack, enjoyed that!

Absolutely brilliant and so nostalgic. I could almost see myself as a small boy being taken on the overhead by my wonderful docker dad and years later walking up Field Lane to my fiances home.

I well remember the mindless arsonist attacks in Seaforth....we never did catch the perpetrator of so many such attacks around the overhead area circa 1956.

Thanks Mack. Finally a real piece of Bootle on the BB site.

Absolutely fantastic.

This was when Litherland was part of Lancashire, all the police officers are from Lancashire County, not Liverpool or Bootle.

Keep up the good work.
