    If it's the same Silcocks Field that I know there was an anti-aircraft gun emplacement during the war and I vaguely remember an air raid shelter. The field I'm talking about was by Robert Bellarmine's church on Orrell Road.

Knowsley Road Memories by Tommy Mc Gregor (Member 10073785) on 28-Feb-2003

    The smell unique to Fell's shop could be bottled and sold for much money - a mixture of Dinky toys, new inner tubes, cycle oil and God knows what. Wasn't there a paint and wallpaper shop very near and on the same block? I remember that wallpaper was put, roll by roll, on a machine which trimmed it before you could use it.

    Yes, 'fraid that's me. Been teaching music for nearly 30 years and living in Scotland. I still have the huge panoramic school photo with us all on. I still get down to the area fairly often as Mum still lives in Waterloo. Hope all is well with you.

    I now live in Surrey B.C. just on the US border.
    Amazing how we all seem to have left Bootle.Was back there in February to see me dad. Bloody cold. Almost glad to get back to the rain. Looked up Donny Rivers as my good mate Norman Gwyther had bumped into him a while back.
    As I get older I get more nostalgic.
    I hope you stopped head butting people!!!Although it must come in handy in Glasgi.
    Nice to hear from you.

    Oops - that is Alec my cousin. He was two or three years older than me and had red hair. He had a fearsome reputation which was useful for me as I could never fight my way out of a paper bag! Sadly, Alec died many years ago of a massive heart attack. He lived down Balfour road. I was only at BGS for two years before we moved.

    Hi Tommy, just been reading your posting for Knowsley road.Although I didnt live around there, my husbands family owned the Brookes Shoe repair shop.It had been there from very early 1900s, i think another shop though in the same road.It was owned by my husbands grandfather George.A Brookes, and then later in the 1950's George's son also George, took over.This was my husbands uncle.I enjoyed your memories.

    Hi Derek,
    Sorry your e-mail to me bounced. I think that if you use fsnet, Freeserve, or fsmail as your mail server, this will be the reason for the bounce, as my server will not accept e-mails from them, due to the fact that a lot of spam comes via freeserve, etc., so they are blacklisted.

My brother Vincent Fitzsimmons went to this school from around 1971. He was an avid footballer and played in the school team. Sadly he was killed at Hillsborough and my Mum is desperate for any old photographs of him during his time at school. Many thanks
