The original Tyrer's store was lower down Liverpool road past Case Brothers the shop sell ex war department bit & pieces.

I remember a pub called The Float in the late 60's which was near the Dingle car spares shop area.  Not sure if they were both there at the same time.

Those were nicknames for the pub. I remember an Uncle from Greenbank used to drink in the pubs. Both pubs were at the top end of Liverpool Rd. I went in the Temperance Bar a few times, it was a dark, dingy place so far as I recall and sold a weird tasting cola- type drink which I found disgusting. There was a toy shop near the bar too which was known as the Dolls hospital (for obvious reasons.) I remember train sets in the window and those balsa wood planes that some boys collected.

Yes, it was in Westfield St. and frequented by those who lived on Greenbank. My family from Bold St used these places so the names were often mentioned when I was a youngster

Why do I suspect you know the answers to these questions Hort and are just trying to fool someone?
