No Joe, we're talking about St John and St James church in Monfa Road, Orrell, where my mum and dad were married and I was christened. Not Bootle cathedral. :D

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?

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:
Joe, the direction of the background would not have shown Walton prison. JJC.

Good photo Joe

Great picture, I would say that is from the late 40s or early 50s.
