Great map

Looks like Trinity Road used to be Wadham (road/lane whatever) according to this???

Good to see the Jawbone pub there too.

That brings back memories of when I was on the cabs in the 80's, Joe. The call was ' The Prinny bingo for Coyle". Mrs Coyle was the mother of the lead singer of the Lotus Eaters, who would take great pride in telling you that, every time you picked her up. :)

Thanks for that Phil, do you remember St Thomas's church the other side Bowersdale Park? and it was very posh.
The money for building the church was put up by William Ewart Gladstone's father, John Gladstone in 1814. He looked to it to provide the kind of evangelical Anglicanism that he favoured. When this eventually turned out not to be the case, he and his family went to worship elsewhere. The building itself survived as a C of E church until 1976. It was demolished in 1990. :wink: :D :D

ATS girls and gun crews of 177 Heavy Battery rush to 'take post' at Fort Crosby near Liverpool. This training operation formed part of British preparations to repel the threatened German invasion of 1940. :wink: :D

The original Holy Ghost Church on Poulsom Drive Ford.

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