The original Overhead Railway opened in May 1893 terminating at Alexandra Dock. The extension to Seaforth Sands opened April 1894.

In July 1905 the Overhead was connected to the Seaforth & Litherland station.

Possibly the construction materials in the background were for one of these projects..

A bit before my time Dan, :)
The Dransfields were a well known and respected Timber Trade Family.
Lots of well known local and national names but many were lost in mergers and take overs over the years.
Mr Dransfield’s company Foy Morgan was an agency house with strong connections in Russia, they later became
Price Morgan ( Price and Pierce Group )

June 21 1935.

Demise of The Hen and Chicken and Little Ireland on Field Lane, and the opening of The Jubilee Inn on Hatton Hill.

At the tail end of the article on the third page, there's mention of Tom Jones of The Liverpool Arms having lived at the property for 69 years.

He must have been born there in 1866.

So many interesting photos, Dan. Can’t believe how posh the Aintree looked when it first opened.
My grandads old watering hole during the thirties/forties!

Thanks Dan :)

Cheers Shelagh

I think The Aintree would have been built on the border of the New Bootle, as Orrell was called. Would have been quite posh then.

Bootle Times July 26 1935

Fatality at Merton Grove Limited.

Don't know what the company produced,only reference is to "finished syrup", but I wouldn't have put hydrogen at the top of possible causes.

Dan. Past machinery, Meccano and Merton Grove explosion; all fascinating to an old Bootle industrial chemist and engineer. Thanks. Walshy.

Christmas in Bootle 1935

Like the spot the errors in the ads competition. Though I'd need a dictionary to check if "corsetieres" is correct.

Yep Phil

Edge Hill, May to October 1913. An apparent example of "boosterism"- i.e. boosting your town/city.

I thought this was an American concept. I've only ever come across the term in Babbit by Sinclair Lewis- Nobel Literature laureate, not fashionable now.
