  1. Factory in Parr

    Was it called Jacobs.
  2. Sad Day for Ice Cream Lovers

    I was a regular visitor to Vincent's ice cream in my youth because my grandparents lived in Gladstone street and when we had one of our family get together's my cousins and I would nearly always end up there, I bet they made some money. Always loved the smell of the place. My dad had a scar on his leg where Vincent's horse kicked him when he was a lad so the business must have been there some time. It's a shame that things have to change. Happy days.
  3. Carp in Taylor Park.

    Happy days fishing with my dad at Taylor park. All I remember catching is perch.
  4. 11pm on Parr Stocks Rd

    Did a lot of walking those same streets and similar areas myself back in the day. Never caused any trouble and never saw any. The world has moved on and not always for the better.
  5. parr ind estate

    We used the corners of some large plastic moulds as boomerangs. They worked a treat.
  6. Oh buoy...and they're off.

    Does that airbus beluga actually float. Good pictures!
  7. Our friend Le200 has died

    So sad . I think we all feel the same even though we never met, going off all the comments above he was a good guy. RIP Le200.
  8. Around St.Helens

    I follow this sport and know a lot of the fighters but I am unaware of this man Jay Moogan. I will keep a lookout in future.
  9. Sherdley Park

    I'M working on it.
  10. Sherdley Park

    Typical. Argue about everything and get nothing sorted. It's the way of the world nowadays!
  11. Priest Robbed in Tellins.

    A prison sentence of X number of years and made to do X number of years. Not a slap on the wrist and a possible fine that they will probably never pay. It's about time they started making an example of these low lives.
  12. Priest Robbed in Tellins.

    This is the second time that the priest's house at St. Vincent's as been robbed. I was informed that the priest as been suffering from depression and that this could be the end of him.
  13. Around St.Helens

    Yes they brought us pies and other goodies every day when I worked at Ashalls.
  14. Car driven into Carr mill Dam

    Should be shot, too much much of this thing going on. And you wonder why car insurance is so high.
  15. Croppers Hill buildings Sold

    Yes Liverpool Rd was once a busy shopping area. And the pictures of Croppers Hill reminded me of how the bus struggled up the road when I was going to my grandparents house in Gladstone St.
