More about this scene

Caption for Liverpool, Bold Street 1887: Bold Street was for many years an elegant and elite shopping area. Here, taste and refinement were more important than price. We can also see St Luke's Church at the top of the street. This church was designed in 1802 by John Foster Senior. It was built by his son John after a lot of trouble in raising sufficient money - this extended the building period. This part of Bold Street once contained a Concert Hall, and in the 1960s the very best coffee bars were here. The street was named after the Bold family, who owned the land when the street was first laid out in the early 1700s.

I belonged to several, but the one which I remember best was the Inlanders. Does anyone at all know the whereabouts of the two guys in this band...Gerry Redmond and Brian Campbell?
