Does anyone remember Mary Cummins (my Grandmother) or know who lived at 156 Irlam Road in 1925?
Thanks in advance.

Peel Road/Tennyson Street library by Bob (Robert) Waring (Member 10113919) on 4-Jan-2004
How many remember fondly, as I do, the small library on the corner of Tennyson St & Peel Road. I was fortunate to live just opposite at 65 Tennyson St and starting borrowing books as soon as I was old enough (5 - 6 yrs old?). My mum and dad were both readers but there was little money to buy books but this library developed in me a love of books and reading which has lasted all my life.

    Reddings was a good old-fashioned green grocer. One corner of the shop held a type of tower where sacks of spuds were tipped in at the top and scooped out at the bottom to be tipped into your open bag.

    Keats Street does not exist any more. I lived there for fourteen years and my family have lived there almost from the time it was built. It used to be off Peel Road going towards Knowsley Road but it, and Hood Street were totally demolished some time ago. If you want to find its location on a modern map you will have to look for the area of park between Moore Steet and Gray Street.

    I would like to thank you all for the input that you gave regarding Keats St etc. I now have a 1907 map of the area that a kind fellow researcher sent me, which shows a great view of the area.
    Arthur SMY moved from Keats St to Percy St then to Cowper St where I think he may have died between 1923-5 as his wife Elizabeth is only mentioned in the Kelly's 1925 dir.

Waterloo front 1930s? by bates (Member 10109085) on 1-Nov-2003
My mum passed away in February this year. She briefly told me awhile ago, that her family lived with her aunty who owned coach and horses in Waterloo and they lived on the front. My mum moved with her parents to Seaforth and then Bootle. Does anyone know of any history of coach and horses in that area@

    Sorry but most of the big houses and I mean big
    had their own coachhouses and stables in that area. The ones that haven't been demolished are now posh apartments. Its a very nice place on the river front. Have you any more details?

    Cheers, DaveE.

9 Oak St. and 70 Cedar St. Bootle by Doreen Travis (Member 10011880) on 26-Oct-2003
In 1898 John NEALE was living at 9, Oak Street, Bootle
Sarah Ann BROWN was living at 70, Cedar Street, Bootle. They married in the Baptist Church on Stanley Road. Are any of these buildings still standing, if so is anyone willing to take digital photos of these buildings please. Thanks a lot.

    There was a Baptist Church on Stanley Rd, between Merton Rd and Trinity Rd. It was demolished in the late 60's to make way for office buildings. It was rebuilt in Netherton and is known today as Emmanuel Baptist Church, Fleetwoods Lane Netherton- I think all records from the old church were transferred there. Website: www.emmanuelnetherton.org

    A picture of the old church can be found at www.merseyviews.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk , click on Bootle Past on the left hand side and then select the box which says Stanley rd/Merton Rd. Hope this helps
