  1. I can only remember Rex Jones's bike shop, (previously Pembertons) at the corner of Winwick Street and Foundry Street... Didnt realise it was at corner of Queen St.
  2. Gleesons Lodging House, that was on Bank Street
  3. Lynn , you said in the above posting that you think the shop must be the one on Winwick Road, JUST DOWN FROM DOLLY BERRYS. That was DOLAN & HATTONS - Believe me....
  4. Lynn, You said the pie shop you are looking for was a few doors from Dolly Berry's shop. If that is correct it was definitely Dolan & Hatton. They did bake their own pies at the back of the shop. Dolan & Hatton was at 169 Winwick Road and Dolly Berrys was at 173 or 175,Winwick Road.
  5. Harry, were you related to Hayes's bookmaker from Hale Street ??
  6. Harry, I must be older than you think. I do remember Ted Beswick. He used to do his barbering in his front parlour, next to Lighfoots fruit shop. The old lady I mentioned that I ran errands for lived in Hale Street. She was Mrs Chadwick (used to call her Mam Chad) Lovely lady. Her family were lifelong friends of my mums family, who lived back to back with them in Cyril Street. Happy days.
  7. Harry, I was brought up in 'old' Watkin Street, so I was very familiar with most of the local shops. I used to run errands for an old lady who lived near us, and Dolan & Hattons was one of my Saturday morning errands for her. They did lovely pies, and what made me think this could be the shop Lynn was thinking of, was that they did sell pies with mince in the bottom and potato on the top, silimar to a cottage pie. They were gorgeous. Then I had to go a few door down to Daniel's grocers to get her cooked meats. I spent may happy days in my childhood and teen years in that area.
  8. Harry, There is one pie shop that you forgot to mention, which was nearer to MacAurthur Beatties than any of them, and might be the one that Lynn was thinking of. It was called Dolan & Hattons, which was just around the corner from Owen Street at 169 Winwick Road just before its junction with Forster Street. Next door to it was Stringer's Chippy, and it was just a couple of doors from Dolly Berry's shop. The shop you mentioned at the corner of Owen Street was Mrs. Hunt's.
  9. Even yesterday is History... The first 4 were won, without the assistance of the League system. If you got beat then, you were out, full stop.
  10. Dont know about lack of Liverpool Posters, I would say that the United Posters are certainly conspicuous by their absence, wouldnt you. Would have had trouble getting a word in on this Forum if United had won......
  11. AROUND THE TIBER, STRANGE NOISES WERE HEARD, THE OMINOUS SOUND OF A RED LIVER BIRD. THOSE ON THE GROUND STOOD STILL AND LISTENED, AS UNDER ITS WINGS, 5 TROPHIES GLISTENED. SAID THE BIRD, "A FRIEND OF MINE TWICE CONQUERED ROME, AND EVER SINCE THEN, ITS BEEN MY SECOND HOME" "THE FIRST TIME HE CAME HE CAME IN A TANK, DO YOU THINK I'D SURRENDER IT TO SOME F.....ING MANC ? LOOKS LIKE THE RED DEVILS HAVE BEEN LEFT IN THE LURCH, BUT GUESS WHAT FOLKS, I'M STILL ON MY PERCH....." (THE ROMAN RED LIVER BIRD (SPEAKING OF BOB PAISLEY)
  12. Observer's new set of rules for MP's are spot. That should save the taxpayers a good few ?million. Cant see it being taken on board though.
  13. Hello again Von, Was looking back at some of the old post, and on one of them you mentioned that your name was Ronnie Keeley. I phoned Anita back, and she thinks she remembers you now. Cheers.
  14. Von, I remember Alan & Anita Taylor from the 1950's. I used to live near them. I have phoned Anita to let her know that you are trying to find her, and she has asked me to pass on her address and phone number to you. Sadly Alan died in the early 1970's at the age of 32 yrs. Anita couldn't bring to mind who you are, but would love to hear from you to find out. I have sent her phone number and address to your email address.
