I think the lake was filled in in the mid 50s. I know a teenager boy drown there some years earlier.

Seaforth Sands station looking south-west in 1894. At this time the dock system had not reached Seaforth which was still an attractive area of sand dunes popular with day-trippers. :wink:

Image

The original terminus of the overhead railway and from where the station
Image

The Station was at ground level until the line was embanked and the road bridged in the 1880s. At the time this photograph was taken, Bridge Road (left side) was known as Marsh Lane and Seaforth Road was known as Church Road. The station became known as Seaforth & Litherland in 1905.

This photo is looking into Peter Mahon Way, the little bit of the green grass was where our house used to stand on Irlam Road. I would say the photo was taken from one of the tall warehouses on Atlantic Road. :wink: :D :D
Do you mind me nicking this photo Ged?

Great photo, Joe, is that St John and St James or St Monica's in between the two blocks of flats? It's hard to tell from the pic on my phone. :D

Joe, i think Phil means the church in the distance between Chestnut House and Salisbury House which is St John and St James, great pictures by the way always look forward to seeing them. JJC.

Haya Phil and John.
When I made my first confession, and holy communion the school I attended was St James school and church? When did it change?

I thought the building with the white roof was Walton Nick?

I can't see another church on that photo, mind, you I can only see out of one eye but that's another story. :wink:
