An old Dairy on the corner of Walton Breck and Valley Road. The Sheep and the cow still look down on pedestrians hinting at the old purpose of the building.
Turkey - from the corner of the Sandon, Anfield. The Sandon has had much alterations over the years and it's hard to determine the date of these decorative segments on the outside walls. They correspond to the decoration around the doorway.
Fish - from the corner of the Sandon, Anfield.
Houlding's Bar established 1888, the Sandon, Anfield - The connection with Everton football club and John Houlding is still celebrated here.
Granby Street Board school, a rather imposing Victorian building built in 1880, probably partly designed to put the fear of God into the local kids and still used for educational purposes, being part of the Liverpool Adult Learning Service. The date stone proudly sits underneath a Liver Bird.
Built in 1875, this entrance to the tramways and omnibus depot on Beaumont Street still survives as the entrance to a car repairs.
Close-up of the date stone.
Villa Maria itself in all its Gothic splendour. By the 1960s some of the houses were rented out and fell into disrepair. One of my favourite stories about one of the mansions off Sefton Park was that in the early 1980s, one was used for parties and during one particular party, The Las turned up and did a gig in the house.
