I always thought Allerton Road was a posh place to shop.  It had little independent childrenís boutiques and adult boutiques.  Showing my age here, is there still such a thing as a boutique? Another long forgotten shop as well, the tobacconist.  There were a couple of them on Allerton Road, was one called the Chocolate Box, sold tobacco products and continental type posh chocolate.  I remember a Tesco on the corner of Green Lane, itís a Chinese restaurant now I think.  Tesco used to be called Irwins.  Gosh Iím old   ;D

Thanks L12 for the walk down memory lane. Canít beat a bit of nostalgia every now and again. 

I think itís a shame when you look at the beautiful old picture house they pulled down and what they put up in itís place.  I canít believe the old one only stood for 40 years and the Ďnewí one has been there for 47 years !!  Itís one reason why I donít want us to ever leave Anfield. You can never replicate,  encapsulate or replace the spirit of the place.

Loving all of those 1980 Allerton road pictures. I would have been up and down there all the time then. I remember Olympic Records and the chocolate box, but was Clooks a cafe as well a sweetshop?

Clooks was a cake shop mate. I donít remember it being a cafe but I donít remember going in there either.  The shop sign was pale green.

Such great independent businesses all over the place even just 40 years ago. Makes me want to photograph the few out there now.

Great pictures, I'm from the area and it's so interesting to see how it used to look.

Perhaps he saw a red door and had some kind of decorating impulse........?

by the look of the poster behind him I'd say he was 'Cheese to meet you'.

By the looks of it, the cheese is unidentifiable, so is it saying to Mick, "Hope you guess my name"?
