If that was Wallasey dock rd the water would be on the left in the pic, or am I being a dipstick, I'm thinking more up Bromborough way?

Does it matter where Pablo gets them from, they encourage discussion and activates brain cells that would otherwise lay dormant.

To me it looks like the Manchester Ship Canal, possibly around the, or just before the boat museum. confused

That is the Ship canal, looking down on Merseyton Road, the big building was Lyjons back in the 70s and the road in the bottom left is probably where the Motorway is now

Here you are, fill your boots.
Why nostalgically look at third hand pictures posted by Pablo42 when you can see the originals on the above website.
Nothing mysterious about them, they are all captioned.

Nothing new about that site and a lot of us on here have been aware of it for many years along with many other sites. On here is a place to discuss them and sometimes that goes further than just the photo. As far as I know Pablo has never claimed the photos are his work, doesn't claim any fame, just puts them up for discussion and debate and there's nothing wrong with trying to rekindle memories.

Well I would rather look at selected photos that a member has posted and not trawl through the whole website. As Bert says, Pablo has not made any claim to these photos and if you want to investigate information on the photo and also post it, that's interesting too!

If Pablo42 captioned them, they wouldn't start so much interesting discussion. He realises that, why don't you?

If I know a photos geneology, I credit the photo. I was sent these photos, like most of them I put up. Because a lot of folk know I'm from Wallasey, they send photos of the area. Most I recognise and label, some, like this one, I never recognised.

Sorry if me not knowing where they are offends folk, likewise, sorry if they are on another site.
