I don't think there's any problem with copying the photos from the archives..or they would have prevented it happening by now.
So many memories in this thread,,even though it goes back a number of years.
I remember Warrens grocers (and his dog Paddy), Martins newsagents, Andrews corner shop; Smiths butchers and Mrs Taylors wool shop. I remember the cottages and the school at Laffak and the Post Office. My brother used to help Bob Harrison on his milk round and still has a scar on his leg where he fell off the milk float. remember the Andertons living on the corner of Willink Road/Litherland Crescent and their grandparents having the depot at the top of Woodlands Road.
My Mum worked with Keith Parr's Mum (and Ken Duffy's Mum) at Randolphs café in town.
I remember the park before the wall was taken away and you had to walk down a path at the side of the Woodlands past the remnants of the "big house" to get into the park. There was still a pond in the middle of the park at that time.
..could go on and on..thanks for the memories
