Ok, we are Wirral but many started off in Liverpool or worked in Liverpool.
Some footage of how it used to be. Not so many people and cars about .

Great stuff Granny. Thanks. Brilliant shots. I agree with Venice - just the right track to go with it!

Thanks girls. The song is very appropriate.

N.B. the island in the Scotland Road image, with two sets of public w.c's going downwards. Hard to imagine now that they were considered safe to use and they probably were too. How society has changed.

A great video there Granny, many memories. In 1962 I worked on 6th floor of Liver Buildings and we overlooked the Strand junction with Water Street. There was a policeman controlling the traffic from a raised box. We would hear him sometimes roar at an offending motorist to stop and he would simply leave the traffic to get on with it while he strolled over to berate the offender.
Always entertaining.

Maybe it's just my age and the brain slowing down, but I wish the first video hadn't been so fast; it was impossible to see much detail in the shots. It would have been better if each shot had lasted, perhaps, four times as long. The song was delightful; I've never heard it before. The second, Victorian, video is great.

You could slow it down using
http://www.youtubeslow.com/

Then you past the URL which is
https://youtu.be/bGK_pCEEJpA

Then you can make it as slow as you wish.

Love the Victorian video Snowhite. So much covered in it, even Leasowe. The parade and the Rose Queen were quite brilliant. Was the camera the best ever invention ?

Two really interesting videos. I really enjoyed them both,so thanks Granny and Snowhite for posting them.The first one took me back a bit with the shot of Queen Square wholesale fruit market, I used to work there in the early 1950's it's a bit scary when I think of how long ago that was.
