Bloodtub was ilchester square, the corporation rd one was the dolphin . Tolls may have been called the graving dock. Again only vague on this.

The Blood Tub was called the New Dock Hotel. There was a Pub on the corner of Beaufort Road and Tyne Street called the Graving Dock, it was opposite the Bidston Graving Docks. Then working towards the Four Bridges, you had the Royal Duke, corner of Duke Street, then The Dolphin,then The Royal, then the Mersey Arms and finishing with the Wheatsheaf on the corner of Pool Street and Corporation Road.

There was also the Half Way House at the junction of Corporation Road and Patten street demolished in the 1970's along with Beaufort Square. Here is a link to a picture taken in 1948 from Gallaher's Hill.
