Marsh Lane 1953. Top right this side of the Ralla is Hornby Boulevard running into the North Park which is leading into Cyprus Road and this was the National Assistance Board Office once stood. At the bridge is Marsh lane and Railway Station. I remember loads more on this photo, tell me what buildings you can recognise or remember :?: :wink:

Syd was a likeable man he always used to ask me what I'd been up to when came home on leave from the army. I never had a pint with him though. I think he passed away when I was away on duty. :wink:

WELLINGTON ROAD TERMINUS
Liverpool Corporation Tramways Office to the left of Seaforth & Litherland Railway Station to the right.

The 'Cinder Path' ran alongside the railway hoardings to Violet Road & Aikenside Street. The original 'Cinder Path' was laid with cinders left over from the building of Litherland Army Camp WWI. The cinders in the camp were used for the parade ground and walkways. The headmaster of St Philip's school offered the services of his boys and himself to the council to help spread the cinders to do their bit for the war effort. :wink:

Thanks Shelagh. I have literally hundreds of old black and white photos that my mum kept.
Although it is great having the old family photos it is a shame that there are very few showing Bootle locations.

Keith, those photos of your Mum at school and at work are brilliant, they are a treasure.
I don’t have any of my family before the 2nd World War they were all destroyed as my parents were bombed out twice during the last war like many other families.

Shelagh, there isn’t much wrong with your memory, you have named most of the buildings shops pubs and clubs that are on the photo well done I knew a couple of them but not as many as you.


The RSPA building left-hand side just before Stanley Road, the Sally Army building turning right onto Stanley Road 2nd building on the right.

That picture of Peel Road makes me very sad. Costigan's - hand sliced bacon and broken biscuits, Ross's fruit shop, the library, Connor's paper shop with its 'Christmas Club', Jennings' grocers, Sayer's at the corner of Bibby's Lane, the Co-Op, the pet shop at the corner of Salisbury Road, Joe's the fish shop, butchers, chandlers, Fran's wool shop, the 'Chinkies' (I know, politically incorrect but that's what we called it) chip shop, bomb sites, St Leonard's church with John Mockford as vicar, Baisley, Anderson, Banner and Bunting as curates and Tommy Cooper as organist, the laundry in the disused chapel...all gone but not quite forgotten. A good place to grow up in the '50s.
