Used to try to count the number of perforations in the ceiling tiles.
Highest I got to was 4,580 then I gave up.

The mosaic that used to hang behind the altar. It's now in the Metropolitan Cathedral.
I'll try and get a better copy sometime.

Couple of pictures from inside the Baxter Hoare building.

The building was used by Palmer Harvey Distribution,Baxter Hoare, Inspectorate Griffith, Microspec and now DDE Law.

Postal address for the building was 40-42 Derby Road, as if numbers mean anything on Derby Road.

The small unit between the Talbot and Campbell Street was SABRE Taxis HQ for a number of years.

Some, not very good, old pictures from inside the building ,about 1996.

You’re welcome, Joe. I discovered this site about a week ago. It’s proved to be a massive distraction. It’s amazing to read so many threads that mention people/places I remember. I left Bootle in 1977, and looking at some of the photo’s posted, it has changed enormously. Not always for the best.
