Here's a few photo's of my Grandafther Peter O'Brien when boxing as a kid with St James Bootle. The group photo was taken in 1926 and includes. W.Hickey, Rutherford, C.Hickey, Father Murphy, J.Dawe, Jones, Shearon, Robinson, Mannion, Coyle (Trainer) W.Jones, Gosling, Peter O'Brien, Fearon, Kehoe, T.Doyle, williams, Johnson, J.Mcdowell, Tyson, P.McDowell, J.Shearon, Tumulty, T.Dawe, J.Shearon.

The other is of two Jockeys boxing in St James in 1927, my great Grandfather Mick O'Brien is on the left (with the towel on his shoulder)

Other photo is of My Grandfather Peter O'Brien with his trainer and in later life with his Ma Alice in Benno's

I've attempted them now Paula....bit big though! still, they will keep the kids away from the fire! I have plenty of old photos of the family but none of Bootle streets etc. (Loads of mums lot from seaforth though) Will post others that I find that are Bootle related....in a smaller size!
