Hello

Back in 1992/93, I used to work at the top of Whetstone Lane in the CO-OP in Warrington Street.

That walk up Whetstone Lane everyday used to kill my legs. By the time I got into work, I was fit for nothing and at 8pm I'd crawl back down it on my hands and knees to the bus-stop for Moreton at Conway Street.

With the magic of the street view, I was gutted to see pretty much the whole of Warrington Street like so many places today, completely demolished.

Does anyone have or know of any places that house pictures of Warrington Street from the early 90s

Many thanks!

Hi Derek

Thank you for the reply!

Thanks also for the info. Do you know if the photo index is viewable online or is it only in person at the library?

Many thanks!
