    Marvellous site, and as good a reason as I’ve come across for wasting time constructively!
    I’ve spotted a couple of minor errors that you might want to correct, though. Firstly, it’s Princes Avenue/Road/Boulevard in L8, not Princess. Secondly, the houses there are mid-Victorian rather than Georgian – the expansion of the city to the south of Upper Parliament Street and east of Mill Street seems to have paused for for several years before resuming in the 1850s and 60s. The road from what is now the Rialto to Princes Park (ie Princes Avenue etc) was laid out in the 1840s, but its character looks to have been semi-rural in the early days.

    Thanks once again.

    • Thanks William, I shall make those changes shortly! Don’t know how I called it Princess, when I know it’s Princes, and also thankful for you pointing out the dates of those houses, which I didn’t know!

      And thanks for your kind comments on the site – if you love to spend time here then I shall not consider it wasted! 🙂

      Best wishes,

    My Great Grandad was the landlord of a pub at 251 Walton Road in 1911. His name was Thomas Warren Vallance, he was 33 yrs old and was born in Shropshire (Salop). Do you know what the name was or have any pictures? Guess it was demolished 1930/40’s for the ballroom.

      Hi Martin,

      Is this the one on the corner of Walton Road and Barlow Lane? On the 1891 map it’s called the Palatine Hotel. There’s no name on the later maps, so I can’t be sure if it kept this name or not. Hopefully this answers your question!
