Thanks. As a result of this post, I just bought a copy from Amazon. (Not an original copy: it was re-printed in 1983 by Scouse Press).

Great pics. Neil. Thanks. Picture No.2 looks as if it was taken from the overbridge at Park Sta. You could (maybe still can) see the "new" brickwork on the bridge. Understand it was aerial mine that came down on a parachute and exploded. The old Mersey Railway cars were built like brick outhouses and withstood most of the blast. All were repaired pronto.

That area from Castle St. to Paradise St. and Lord St. to Custom House must have been the most devastated as regards the number of buildings obliterated. It's amazing how the Victoria statue survived!

In the Borough Road photo, note how the back yard air raid shelters survived. Proof that they did the job well.

Which area of Borough Road is that? Is it Christchurch, Oxton in the background? Would that make the area Briardale Road or maybe Carlton Road?

That's the old children's hospital in the background, its a bit farther down than the Carlton, Christ Church Primary is on the right of the picture (looking untouched!).

Picture is taken roughly from where the shell petrol station is now.
