Am I being particularly dense?
I saw these for sale on ebay for £1.99, and wondered why.

I'm pondering a £5 bid just in case.

I did some business with Firwood, usually with Peter Booth. I remember him starting out he’d been a rep on the road flogging Plywood and Timber to the shuttering formwork boys .
He built a very good business , then just in Burscough. A tough buyer but always straight and payment on time.
He is well respected in the Timber Trade, a Buck made good. :D Ken

Dan. More excellent images. Mike Hawthorne was my boyhood hero on 2 and 4 wheels. The photo of him in the Ferrari, 1955 is spectacular - but frightening - no Armco barriers or roll cages on the cars, no full face helmets, spectators near the track, in those days; now we even have a halo around the driver. 40+ years ago, as an engineer in my 20s, I was lucky enough to work on early drive trains for performance cars but heavy lead acid batteries were a burden. In my 30s, early methanol fuel cells were tried but had too many problems. In my 40s, lighter batteries were scaled up and introduced. In my 50s, we started to demonstrate high area supercapacitors coupled to batteries for fast power delivery over limited times (i.e., good for acceleration). Finally, retired in my 60s, it is good to see Formula Electric progressing strongly, aided by powerful, rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors and computer assisted control. My hope is that it will become the normal F1 technology. The driver remains supremely important. So many scientists, engineers, mechanics and technicians quietly beavered away for so long to get here. Walshy.

Cheers Walshy.
Still a non-believer in batteries as the way forward.
I think the mining of the raw materials and their end-of-use recoverability are a huge problem.
Would love someone to crack small scale fusion, or maybe I've watched Back To The Future too many times.
My last job was at Oil Salvage in Bootle.
We used to get discarded Formula racing car lube oil from Shell Research at Thornton Hough.
Not like anything you would ever put in your car.

Stan Clayton's post on the chat forum, set me thinking about the importance of cinema to our parents and grand parents.

Cinemas in Bootle and Liverpool from the 1935 Kinematograph Year Book.

The King Edward, Great Howard Street.

I walked past this pub a couple of thousand times at 7 o'clock mornings and evenings.
It was a favourite haunt of the Bibby employees.
Only went in there once, a Christmas Eve 1981/82.
You wouldn't believe so many people could fit into such a small bar.
Don't think it ever served coffee or croissants.
Probably why it folded.

Did it have one of those heated boxes on the bar displaying month old pies that had been reheated numerous times ?

It wasn't that sophisticated Ken.
Remember in The Atlantic on the dock road, you could get a sheet of ribs and butter beans and lunch time.
Heaven.
