I've always loved the houses at the Christ Church end of Merton Road.

I went around the small building to the right when it was offices.

This one's for sale at £125k. Should come with its own history book.

Dan. The Merton Road house brought back memories - close to the oldest house in Bootle. As a teenager, I recall tidying the garden and doing the paintwork (mostly black + white) there. A few metres up Merton Road, towards Christ Church, was a red public phone box. It was one of the few that worked in those days and I often called my judy (my wife of 40+ years) in Portsmouth, from there. Walshy.

Used to go to Melwood to watch them train, went there with my friend from Warwick Bolam Jimmy Finegan

Some memories evoked there, Dan. The Strand when it was a shopping centre, not the charity shop shell it is now. :(

Dan, Wonderful postings, resulting in much nostalgia.
Great to see the old lathes and speciality mills; I was made to machine a solid steel cube to be a sliding fit in a steel box, as an apprentice engineer. I recalled the joy of being able to reassemble my Grandad's pocket watch as a 7 year old lad; in truth, it took me just 30 minutes to strip down- but, ahem, over 10 weeks to reassemble (lessons of a lifetime).
The old adverts reminded me of many events. My Grandma used to sit in front of the coal fire, in her South Park Bungalow on Hawthorne Road, intently watching the formation dancing on her Rediffusion TV during 'Come Dancing'. Her favourite was the Constance Millington formation dancing team, trained locally. Like many, I bought vinyl 45s, when saved pocket money, XMAS or birthday money allowed. Recipients of much cash included the Broadway Stores, opposite the Gaumont cinema on Stanley Road and the Pop Inn, on Stanley Road diagonally opposite Ash Street. I bought my first plastering trowel in 1966 at Parrs store on Stanley Road. It was a good few quid but still continues in use, despite so many years of cleaning. The store also stocked the very local ‘Aunt Sally; liquid soap, bottled in Park Street, near its junction with Stanley Road. The smell of this cleaner was unmistakable - it always reminded me of women proudly scrubbing their steps at the front of houses in Brookhill Road - and the grim stairs of the Cavern, in later years. Not to worry, the music was legendary. Walshy.

Cheers Walshy.

Where to start. Aunt Sally liquid soap in a bottle with a cork stopper. Loved the colour, smell and gloopiness of it.The colour reminded me of Lifebuoy soap.We used to get it from Ken the Chandler, who'd drive round Netherton in his van, every Friday night.

We always watched Come Dancing when the Constance Millington Ballroom Formation Team where on, because one of the women dancers worked in Brennand's in the Square.Always had a bee-hive hair-do.I think her name was Connie. I had to laugh at the ad they put in- learn to do The Twist.

Broadway Stores. My older brother has still got my pellet gun. His grandson was using it for target practice in his workshop last year. Firing at the lamp shades. It must be hereditary.

The Paint Pot in the Strand- used to get my pens there, and paper from Richmond Row in town(Tootill's, I think).

Regards
