Dan, The Palace of Applied Arts image is great. It reminded me of both Disneyworld and Portmeirion, rather than Edge Hill. I expected the Electric Light Parade or Rover to make an appearance at any time. Walshy.

Aerial photo of Netherton/Orrell/Aintree centred on the Giro(as was). Who calls it the Santander?

Taken about 2010,at a guess. And no, not ten past eight. Detail is quite good when magnified.

"Gadgy" from the Urban Dictionary- an old nightwatchman or grumpy old man.

Am I getting close? Never heard the word before.

St Andrews from Mildmay Road

It looks like Stanley Road was much narrower when the first photo was taken.

I've looked at the early maps, but none seem to have housing at the junction of Mildmay and Stanley Road.

From 1909 onwards it was always Johnson's Dyeworks on that corner.
