Think that's an tent army camp between what was the Regal cinema and St Phillips

March 25 1947.

Just behind the Sausage Works, Brotherton's Tar Distillery.
I remember in the 60's, the Trinidad Asphalt Company had a wagon depot a little further along on Hawthorne road.
From the comments on Britain from Above there were reputed to be underground tunnels and a WWI ammunition depot in the area,
Also love the white concrete of Dunnings Bridge.
Upper left- Kirkstone Road estate.
Further upper left, cinder path through the golf course.
Pre English Electric.

Same day looking west over Bootle docks.

Don't know much about Seaforth and the dock side streets, but they look great.
For bearings, St Philips, Regal and the White House lower right.
And there's a ship in the Gladstone.

Hello

On Dan's photograph you can see the Bryant & May Matchworks in Longfield Rd, the tram sheds on Linacre Road with the cinema opposite, and what are the light coloured objects running along the canal behind the tar works on Hawthorne Rd ?

John

Could they be barges (with tarpaulin covers)?

Cheers John, Bernie.
Just checked on Going to the Cinema.
The picture house was then called the Coliseum, changed to the Essoldo in 1954.
Just checked, Essoldo came from Esther, Solomon and Dorothy Schenckman. That's all I could find. See Below.
I think lower left, above the Hawthorne Road rail bridge, is the Litherland Tannery,which is now residential.
Also, lower to the side of the Regal, looks to be a short cut path through the fields that used to be Kemp and then Brooks farm that became the site for St Wilfred's school.
The environmental survey for St Wilfred's mentions a rubber works that was 180 metres south west of St Wilfred's but I've never heard of one there.
Looking at the old aerial photos gives an idea of the fundamental importance of the rail network then.

From The Chronicle

Solomon Schenckman died August 1963.
