The hunting lodge at Merton Road a couple of years back. I'm slowly trawling through my folder alphabetically, pulling out a few here and there. Jumped up to M as this has been mentioned a couple of times.

Great, just register at Photobucket or imageshack and it's pretty straightforward from there.

Excellent. I've got some stored on my computer but i don't know whose they are also i've saved a pic that you posted(pretty sure it was you) of St Katherine's Church Abercromby Square(the only image i've seen of it) is it ok to post it. I think you got it from the Records Office,

Springfield St, known to us as Springy. There was a doctors in here in the 1970s and a betting shop, Manny Charles, in the small wreck a little further up.

I've got loads of Seel St, both my own and LRO ones but this one, No.94 I took because it's where my mam and dad were living in from 1949-52 (in the cellar) when my brother was born in 1951. They were originally from the Gerard Gardens area then after he was born they moved back to L3 and Field St before moving to Holly St, in those mock tudor Eldon Grove type/era of houses until eventually Gerard Gardens itself when they came under demolition in 1968.

Some great stuff there, thanks. Heap's Mill is listed, part of it is late Georgian ,1830. That small terrace on the east side of Shaw St could've been restored but a developer wanted the land only. Similar situation occurred on Upper Parliament St(opposite the Women's Hospital) a couple of years back when two large town houses of the 1820's were sacrificed for a community project(could've been saved) Those pair of houses on Seel where you parents lived have been restored. Incidentally i spoke to somebody a few years back up here in Ormskirk who lived in Duke's Terrace(the last back to back) until the mid 1960's.
