  1. For many years, I've have had in my possession, what is best described as a 'promotional' book showing photos of buildings. The creators of this book were : John Lucas & Son (Builders) Ltd. Prescot I assume that the company is no longer in existence - or has it been renamed ? Anyone know anything, about John Lucas & Son ? I'm certain, that some of the photos will be of interest to some on this forum. The following images were as they were taken (in numerical order) from the book. It is interesting to note small details, such as overhead cables - for trams or trolley buses ?

  2. Many thanks indeed, Alan ! I wonder where he lives ? It would be great to give him an interview. I trawled all over the Internet looking for him, and you've found him so quickly . . . impressive stuff !
  3. Whilst researching my family history, I've found that my grandfather (who was called John S. Heaton); had a cousin also called John "Jack" Heaton. I'm told that Jack Heaton played for Waterloo & England (Rugby). I've also been told that Jack Heaton had a cousin (on the other side of the family) called 'Dickie' Guest who also played for England. Jack Heaton died some years ago; I wonder if Dickie Guest is still alive ?
