    I got a new camera for christmas off the missus and I've always been one for feeding the birds, especially in the winter so I've been getting used to the camera by getting some shots of them. didn't realise how hard it is to get a decent pic, they never stay still long enough, but I'm getting better as i get used to the camera. Here's a few ones I'm happy with up to now. I'm giving google photos a try so hopefully this post doesn't come out wrong. Blue Tit Blackbird Goldfinch Long Tailed Tits Looking forward to when it warms up a bit and i can sit out in the garden and get a bit closer to them.

    It's gone bigger. In the panoramic pictures the building doesn't bow out,it's straight,a wide angle lens would of been better.

    More work there again this morning. Surveyors working. One of them made comments to me about the survey for monitoring draining levels when the dam is emptied.. The other objected to me taking photos in a public place.

    I thought like any genealogy that we wanna restore, legacies are also a thing for some people. My family, happened to be one of those people who love things with sentimental value. When I started my research on my roots, I came to know a distant relative who owned a promising business. I asked her to make a video about family history and about her legacy and how her business started. Her story actually inspired me and I realized that besides the apps that we use to locate our roots it would be good to have something such as this recorded so that when we look back at the past we have something to watch on. What are you guys recording with regards to your family history?

    Hi Billychris.I recently put a note on this site about a long distant relative who was identified as glass worker in 1700s at Sutton. A contributor referred me to a reference to Ravenhead plate works amongst others.in a book about glassworks in st.helens.There is quite a lot of info going around if you google.

    It is a listed building. The maps on the listed buildings pages have disappeared (with changing formats, etc. Something else to fix) but scroll down this page for the description.

    Does anyone remember Gerard School, in Cowley Street, St. Helens. It was an Infants School, and was still going till about 1953. I've never seen it mentioned anywhere in either Local newspapers or local history. I went there until I was 7 and then we transferred to Lowe House School after that. Sadly that school is now closed also. Going back to Gerard School, I remember the teachers as Miss Corsey, Miss Burrows, Miss Whittaker, and Miss Hartley. Hope someone else remembers. B)

    Yep, it was the Pilks Car Park Ollie. If you look at this pic: http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/download/EPW009312 The Geraldo is just left of bottom centre in the lightish area - you'll see the gap where the school was.

    Cheers for that, Le - so it was an entirely different building altogether. I don't think I remember a building on that particular spot - in my memory, when I worked at Cowley Hill Works that piece of land was a 'fenced off Car Park'.

    I'm still struggling somewhat with 'Gerrard School' as opposed to 'Gerrard Hall'. Some people seem to be saying that they are two different buildings. Although you're saying they're two different buildings, were they actually attached to each other .. or did part of 'Gerrard School' become 'Gerrard Hall'? Looking at the building, from the aerial view it looks as though it's all one, but of course, it could be two adjacent buildings .

    I lived in Cowley st and went to Gerards school , the school gate was in Cowley st. The Gerards Hall was in Lords st it was opened by father Challinor it was for the young people of Gerards Bridge they had snooker tables and table tennis tables ,they also ran jumble sales ,and played bingo there ,it then became the Grealdo club ,then it became a gym.

    As far as I'm concerned, the building in the Google Pic that Phyll linked to in post No 15 is DEFINITELY the same place that I remember as The Geraldo . I know that I was frequently 'rather inebriated' when I left the place, but I was most definitely sober when I arrived there, so remember clearly where it was and what it looked like . Besides that, I passed the place 2 or 3 times a day for an entire year when going to/leaving work/doing the 'Pie Run' via Cowley Hill Works Lodge Gates.

    I think you're right Olliebeak. It later became a gym/fitness place. I'm not sure what it is at the moment (haven't been down there in a while).

    Was Gerrard School the building that became a nightclub called the Geraldo round about 1968? That was in Cowley Street near the lodge gates to Pilks Cowley Hill Works. Ollie
