I look in on the Bootle Forum every day, and am so pleased and grateful to see pictures of locations
and activities that bring back so many memories from long ago. At the moment, I have a book from
Wigan Central Library entitled "Lost Lines, Liverpool and the Mersey" by Nigel Welbourn. Whilst it is
mainly a book for railway enthusiasts, there are some great pictures of the docks and the Liverpool
Overhead Railway, and elsewhere, which I know will please many Bootle Forum members.

Best Regards, Ray Smyth.

Nicolas. It was great to see a clear B & W photo of our old neighbourhood. Brookhill Road runs left to right across the front of the photo, ‘Little’ Brookhill Road (we lived at No. 19) being on the left hand side of Waterworks Street. I always remember the wonderful smell of Williams’s Toffee Works (triangular corner of Waterworks Street and Pine Grove). The kindly factory girls would often throw us a few toffees from despatch on Waterworks Street. The area was permeated by jiggers, our common conduits. The ‘Rec’ Park, with its circular bathing pool, is easily spotted on Recreation Street, near to the Corpy Works. I went to Sunday School at Christ Church Mission, on the corner of Waterworks Street and Recreation Street and often played in the scrap yard at the side of the Cut on Litherland Road, near Little Strand Road - then footy and tree climbing in the wonderful Derby Park just up Waterworks Street at its junction with Worcester Road, off the front left of the photo. Great memories, friends and neighbours. Walshy.

Thanks Walshy,
I was born at the bottom of Brookhill but left when I was four.
My Mother was one of the Williams girls. I can remember the little Rec by the Corpy.
I remember Nolan’s and Dooley’s shop on the corner.
:D Ken

Lived in Alt from 78 to 2012 thats the start of my block number 1 Alt. The dockers name was Theo I think. Also used to chase us for wellying a football against his wall. Guess this was taken on the Nursery side of the road.
Always amazed the Melly factory was literally up against the backs of the houses till it got flattened. The noise must have been purgatory.
