Robert Taylor LAIT was my great, great-uncle who was born in Great Grimsby in 1875. He came to Liverpool when he was 6 years old, his family moving over here around 1881 to settle in the area. He had various jobs through his life, working in the local water works, packing and hiring out bottles,Continue reading “89/365 – ST.DUNSTAN’S CHURCH, EDGE HILL”


This is a photo I took a couple of weeks ago of the ‘moby’ at the junction of Murrayfield Road and Chislehurst Avenue, Childwall. During the 1960’s and ‘70’s, these mobile shops were a common sight on every housing estate and were housed within trucks which might pack up and leave at the end ofContinue reading “THE LAST MOBY?”


a bust of an early aviator entitled “The Twentieth Century”, sculpted by Mary Pownall Bromet (1889 to 1932). The piece was first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1928.

Conked out tonight watching TV after a busy day. Realised at 11:50 that I hadn’t taken my shot for today. Grabbed the camera and went for a close-up of the first thing I could….the lines of the glass show up quite well in mono methinks! 🙂 #Project365 #Photoaday

As Mum describes inContinue reading “GENEALOGY – TESSIE ABERNETHY”


Before the days of ‘instant news’, ‘in-your-face’ data and the Internet, things happened at a more leisurely pace. Methods of keeping in touch with loved ones, even those who lived only a relatively short distance away in the next town, would include either a telephone call (if you had one), or more likely a cardContinue reading “GENEALOGY – TAPESPONDING”

65/365 – TEACHER’S PET?

Searching around for a suitable subject for my camera, I found Paige’s blackboard. She and Aunty Becky had been playing school (guess who had wanted to be a teacher since she was about 4 years old!), and I discovered that Paige had been learning about astronomy. I suddenly had an urge to become the manContinue reading “65/365 – TEACHER’S PET?”


Detail of the hotel and museum buildings, Great Malvern, Worcestershire, earlier today. Standing on the site of a Benedictine Monastery and lodging house, the present building was built in 1848 after the previous lodging house was demolished. In 1757 full board for a week in the lodging house would have set you back a princelyContinue reading “61/365 – ABBEY HOTEL & MUSEUM”
