Accy,If it's not a rude question, why have you posted a load of Preston pics on the 'Official Liverpool thread?
I know you havn't got your own forum but i'm sure the Mancs would sooner see these exiting pics more than us. :cheers:

Come on though lads, you've got to admit Accy's pictures really capture the romance of Preston. It looks fantastic. I think numbers 4 and 9 are my favourites, but really, I love them all.
The M55 is definately not the most romantic motorway in Preston. I kissed a girl on a footbridge over the M6 in Leyland.

Pub landlord's fear for 20 jobs May 31 2005
By Homa Khaleeli, Liverpool Echo

A PUB landlord faces sacking 20 staff when his Liverpool tavern is knocked down - despite there being no plans for the site.

The Cooper's Emporium Bar in Kingston House on James Street has been open for 10 years and has a special place in the hearts of its regulars.

But it is going to be demolished by the Northwest Development Agency even though it has not yet submitted any plans outlining what it wants to do with the land.

Landlord Les Brown, 58, said he must shut the pub and move out by June 5. He wants the agency to allow him to stay until he can find a suitable new site, as he thinks any plans they want could take a year to finalise.

He said: "Why can't we stay until they have a reason to knock it down? Last night people were crying and saying 'Where are we going to go?'.

"It's a unique bar and Liverpool will miss it if it goes."

But Martin Wright Liverpool Vision Development Director said "Liverpool Vision and NWDA are bringing forward proposals for the development of Kingston House.

"We are close to finalising a development brief for the site and expect to have a development partner in place by the end of the year.

"During negotiations to acquire the building the tenants fully understood and accepted the need to achieve vacant possession to bring forward our plans."

Because he cannot find other premises, Mr Brown said all his 20 staff will have to be made redundant if he has to move out quickly.

MP for Riverside Louise Ellman said she had written to the NWDA on Mr Brown's behalf.

She said: "It's a popular pub and always crowded. It's an important local facility and good for the city.

"It's often difficult when there is redevelopment but he should certainly have an alternative provided."


Good news, lets hope it will be replaced by a new quality development.

Bad news that, not the potential development but the rough house approach to it.

"let's kick out a booming business before we know what will happen"

This is another Queens Square in the making. Progress is one thing, destroying peoples livelyhoods before you have a plan is another.

Toad: But its not like it has come like a big surprise for Coopers, I´m certain I read 6-12 months ago Coopers saying they knew the place would soon be demolished.

i have found a program on the internet that is an interactive globe viewer that lets you zoom right the way in to your own street. i went to manchester airport on it and i could even see the airlines that were there, it is that detailed. download it from www.keyhole.com and select the 7 day free trial. you need to suply an email and password once downloaded. try it, its superb
