A week or so ago, local business owner Chris Clare asked for photos of the building that is now his office on the corner of Wood Street/Market Street. Syd Bird came up with a couple of photos, the first of which from the 1920s shows a busy Market Street (been to the pub fellas?).
Below is the same location in the 1960s. Not the most attractive of shop fronts is it? You can read the background to Liverpool Savings Bank here and I also stumbled upon this blog about Bold Street that also discusses the bank.
The Woolcraft shop next door must have been going for years as I can remember it being there in the 1980s I reckon. If you’ve got any other photos of this block of shops feel free to send them in.
