Summat the younger ones might know. Mathew Street before the Beatles. The warehouses down here were mainly fruit warehouses. I used to work in the city fruit market, Queen Square and the Northern Fruit market Cazenau Street, just off Scotland Road. It's now the entrance to the Wallasey Tunnel

Looks grim, doesn't it?

Wasn't Stanley Street another with warehouses, can't quite remember? Also, was the Post Office sorting office at the bottom of Stanley Street? Remember we would get off at Exchange Station and walk virtually in a straight line down to Whitechapel in the centre.

Bad News SS. That's not the same Cavern club. The original was knocked down in the early seventies. it's a good mock up mind. It certainly hasn't got that musty smell or the condensation coming off the ceiling...

Stanley street had a lot of fruit importers offices, a couple of small shipping offices and a couple of insurance companies. Yes, the sorting office was in Whitechapel, exactly where the Met Quarter is today. They built a new Post Office there in the eighties and knocked it down not long after

Quese for the Cavern. The electricity sub station is still there. There is no wall there now. The Roberts wagon would be parked right outside the Grapes Pub

I think that this is taken from the corner of Harrington St ( off to the immediate left, with your back to BHS) with Button St going off to the right, which means the street at the end is Temple St. Therefore you can't see Mathew St because it goes off sharp left at that junction and runs roughly parrell with Harrington St.

The brickwork on the window by the Button St roadsign is a giveaway which matches up with one on Google Earth.

By the way, it's nice to see that Google have now got Liverpool 1 shops and the canal link past the Pier Head on their satellite view - but the new landing stage for cruise ships is still missing.
