1906. 'The Square'

1906. The trap behind the horse is piled high with furniture, could this be the day of moving for the licensee and his family as this was the year the 'Old' Mull was demolished to make way for the 'New' Mull.

This is obviously a cropped and enlarged section of the previous photo, can you spot the difference?.

1907. 21st Feb. This was the year that the 'New' Mullberry Tree Hotel was built, was the crowd gathering for it's opening?..

Great photos Algy. Absolutely marvelous. I love to see what places looked like then compared to now. Your 1904 photo of the tramlines being extended from across Wilderspool bridge up London Road is relevant, as I took a photo c.1980 from a similar angle and now one from 2012. What a difference over the years!

middlec, great to make comparisons, it makes you realise how much we have moved on, although sometimes I do wonder. :unsure:
