Hi BMW Joe,
Thanks for the photos, they're very good. I need to ask a question though. The photos are for someone else who referred to the place as the Coop Transport Depot. Was there any such place or has he just mixed Coop with Corp?
Again, many thanks.

I've never heard of a place called the coop transport depot, and I'm not sure such place existed or exists.

I think he may have just got coop mixed up with corp as this is the only transport depot on Cleaveland Street.

There was a Co-Op Depot, It was a Dairy, My Dad was a Milkman and worked out of there. It was demolished not too long ago frown
I loved that building with the curvy roof.
It closed down in the late 90's after the milkrounds being franchised out and being taken over by Express Dairy. They moved the Diary up to Greasby.

I lived opposite the Corpy Depot, on the corner. The nearest Co-op depot was the bakery on Price Street/Cathcart Street, but is was horses and carts and there was a big stable setup there too. The lads used to "jock" a ride as the horses were galloping home down Price Street from Duke Street. I think one poor kid even got killed when he fell off and went under the wheels, that would have been just after the war. It might have just been a story put around to stop us doing it. Those horses couln't half shift as they knew they were going back for the nose bag and a kip.

Memory flash. Up the top end of Cleveland Street, towards Duke Street and past the North Star and Manweb yard there was a big depot where the Co-op coal lorries used to be depoted, possibly other Co-op transport as well.
Remembered when thinking of something else, weird.

Yep I can see that. It was built on a site that used to be called "Pat's Field" I think. It was a scrap yard type place and we used to go there collecting slummy to take to the bally's. Using the old words we used to use, I'm getting a kick out this. Pat's field used to go all the way back to Corporation Road I think.
