Hi Dave,

I've moved your post over to our "Talk about the History of Bootle" section for more replies and also left it in our "Chat About anything" section if it disappears off the page. Anything in our "Talk about the history of Bootle" section is saved forever.

Mack :wink:

Thanks for the school photos. I was very pleased with the Salisbury Road one because that is the first time I've ever seen the outside of the Scots Presbyterian chapel (if only a bit and in the background) on Balfour Road. It was a bomb site when I knew it and we used to play in the rubble. That was before I knew that it was the church that my nan and mum went to before the war. If anyone has a better picture of the chapel, I'd very much like to see it.
