It's obviously my age, but I'm struggling with the orientation of this fascinating photo...…..now if somebody would identify the bridges over canal in the bottom right hand corner & the one above also, then I'm sure "my little grey cells" (acknowledgements to Hercule Poirot here) will be able to process the rest.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Filsgreen & Bob...…….that was a "Light Bulb" moment for me...…..gotcha.

The next thing puzzling me is the bridge over Hawthorne Road......is that running adjacent to Aintree Rd ?......I never knew such a bridge existed.

Cheers.....superb photo. :-)

I think the bridge was taken down in the late 80s Paul. Obviously the line started at the docks, ran behind the Jug and picked up the line around noggsy, or could have joined the Aintree line by the Ghosty. I think. :D

Hi Bob. Noggsy is Norris Green and the Ghosty was the disused train sheds that you accessed from Park lane it was between Warbreck moor and Bridle Road.

St Robert Bellemines

Ste Duffy Am I missing something here? That's not st Robert Bellarmine that's the wispa,surprised I am not on that picture star man must have been in NJ used that week.

Tony Rogan no mate it was most of them but that was a Saturday team I never played for the wispa

Tony Rogan a mixture of both Steve Roomes that is us playing in Belgium in LFC kit you loved so much in fact Steve Duffy that's probably why you went there the kit

Ste Roomes The kit was a netherton kit Mike Ohare got from Liverpool fc . We went to Belgium representing the Giro

Tony Rogan we did and Dan Rowan took all the kit

Ste Roomes Wondered what happened to it as I played in Rushies shirt

Brian Shannon probably didn't score

Tony Rogan I played in king kennys

I was at Balliol Road School from 1945 to 1948 when someone made a mistake and gave me a pass on my exam paper enabling me to move to Bootle Tech.

Games half day at Balliol consisted of Mr Battersby marching us down Southport Road to the schools playing fields. I always envied the talented lads picked for the Bootle Boys team who played their home matches there.

Are those beautiful grass pitches still there or is it now a housing estate? :roll:
