I remember seeing it Keith. A gift shop wasn't it?
All maps are fun- I could look at them for hours.
Anyway Liverpool are 4 up and it's the 89th minute.
Multi-tasking at its best.

Dan. Great maps and adverts, thanks. I particularly enjoyed the Meccano Magazine. My first, incomplete set of Meccano, bought from Sharrat's shop at the corner of Brookhill Road and Cornwall Street,aged 8 in 1960, was a real 'bitsa' but encouraged me to make, repair and modify pieces of flat, slotted, painted steel to make ambitious devices shown in the instruction book. As an engineering student and apprentice, I often had to put up 'Dexion' shelving, the angled slotted steel supports being like a big version of Meccano, but needing to be cut to size with a guillotine or hacksaw. In my qualified 20s, we often used Dexion framework to support temporary chemical plant or mechanical engine testbeds. Lessons of a lifetime, starting in the corner shop and travelling through industry, universities and garages. Walshy.

Dan said 'Walshy, don't tell me you never had a Contemporary Bricklayer Kit'.
I also bought a Bayko kit from Sharrat's shop.One of the most fascinating construction kits I ever saw - as it was thin steel rods acting as a scaffold for prefabricated plastic sections of walls, windows, door and roof - reminded me very much of the prefabs that some of my mates lived in down the Marsh lane end of Brookhill Road and in Little Strand Road. Most of us happily lived in condemned terraced slums with outside loos and a backyard, so it came as a social shock to see that all the houses built in the instruction book had driveways, sizeable gardens, bay windows, balconies and were semis or detached, with marvellous door canopies and coloured tile roofs. At the tender age of 9, I first realised that we were working class but Bayko was aimed at middle class kids! Lego came later but was less class biased. Meccano made great cranes - which seemed class-less at the time. Walshy.

Dan. I appreciated the tower crane- my fist serious Meccano construction. The photo of street footy instantly takes me back to happy days when we would temporarily discard our sweaters, turning them into goal posts, form two, matched teams and play until your Ma called you in for tea or bed. We lived near a busy, black lead works. Before eating or sleeping, my Ma would use a flannel and carbolic to scrub my knees clean of graphite, while I stood in the sink! Graphite became one of my major interests as an engineer and scientist. Walshy.

The inventor wanted to call the game Hobby. But that name was already trademarked. So he called it Subbuteo.
Subbuteo subbuteo is the Latin name for the hobby hawk.

Many fabulous pictures, memories of places, shops, childhood games.
Monopoly still going strong, just bought Monopoly Fortnight (whatever that means) for grandson, (hints dropped for weeks :))
Rice Lane filled with shops, lived down that way during the early seventies, local shops were so handy - County Rd, Walton Rd, Walton Vale!
Very convenient, much prefer the old fashioned shops :)
Remember Irwin's, Costigan's, Co-Op, Liggetts, Maypole - all those familiar shop aromas!
Remember when Kids played outside (whatever the weather) anyone for lallio, Kick the can - Kirb or wall :lol:

Thanks Dan :)
