with respect Jim- most of our conversation had been erased by the time i arrived at Lime St Station- combination of John Smiths and failing short term memory!!

Jim Brady

Barmaid in the P&W?
She is quite clever that kid actually, she was throwing a few quiz questions out.unfortunately she reads the same paper as me so she knew the answers to what I asked her.
To you John not the barmaid in the P&W is not the source!!!

Very much doubt if correct buy found this to be of interest:
As we near Christmas found news of the Light at the Liver Building:

Looking for a unique venue in Liverpool? Look no further than The Light at the Liver Building: A city-centre venue with fabulous space in a historic building, with great facilities and a wonderful view of the Mersey. Check out http://www.thelightrlb.org/ Apparently now closed ?

Not a new idea at the Liver building:



A dinner using the Liver Clock Faces before they were put in place in 1908

Jim,
Its the Royal Liver Assurance Building opened in 1911 and still its Head Office. ts one of the Three Grace's, along with the Port of Liverpool Building and the Cunard Building. The clocks are known as the Georges Clocks as they were set at the exact time King George V was crowned on 22nd June 1911.

Was actually looking up the bankers dancing on seamens' graves and led me to the Light at the Liver Building: A city-centre venue with fabulous space in a historic building, with great facilities and a wonderful view of the Mersey.

Scouse Nouse was the giveaway !

Will explain more again, but can you tell more of this pic ? it is a Liverpool mystery to me. Check out the dates. upstairs was built before downstairs and the satellite dish becomes priceless in context with the photo.

Possibly also of local trivia interest: The flagpole at the Kop end at Anfield home of LFC came from this ship: The Great Eastern and chimes at the Liver Building is a piano wire being struck and amplified to a speaker on the roof. There is no bell. K.

Tony there is not a picture in post 1#.Maybe my wording is a bit confusing,I think if I would've shown a picture it would've given it away.

Keith that picture of the pub,I was telling John Gill about that on Friday when we were in the Pen and Wig.It was said a pub in Liverpool where the top half was built 200 years before the bottom half,the answer was the Central.The Central is where John and I say our goodbyes,by the time we got there last week it was dark so we could'nt see the dates.
Regards.

Hope you didn't look back when we said our goodby's last Friday Jim- I dived into the Central, not for a bevvy but to visit the Gents before boarding my train- just in case you got the wrong idea!!-To access the Gents in Lime st station costs 30p and i'd spent all my pay off in the P&W.

Was a bit busy to reply more fully. replied Whoops as I may have made a blooper but had no time to double check. In all honesty if I had knowingly erred, would have apologised: The link above was not my source and was added for additional info on the post and not to intentionally block Scouse Nouse etc. I hope that the link to the latest news, sport and all things scouse from BBC Merseyside... is of benefit to anyone interested.

I have not accessed or listened to BBC Merseyside or seen any pictures they show on air as doubt many have.

I further imagine that you have many Liver gems that you can and may post and hopefully will continue Scouse Nouse.

I will follow all, but not answer as my source as found is better than the radio.

Best wishes and regard's, Keith
