Memories of Bootle


I moved from Liverpool twenty six years ago. I lived in Aughton Road, number seven, and went to Orrell Primary School. I remember all the shops at the end of Aughton Rd; Bradys sweet shop, Cousins, Gallaghers sweet shop, fruit and veg shop which was once owned by my Uncle Brian. I can also remember the men's barbers shop that was there - very fond memories for me as a kid.
