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.
