Liverpool, Church Street c.1905

More about this scene


Caption for Liverpool, Church Street C1905: We are looking up Church Street from Lord Street, with the fascinating shop, Bunney's, on the left. Bunney's was the shop for unusual gifts and imported goods from all over the world, which came to Britain via Liverpool Docks. Bunney's specialised in oriental goods and 'novelties'; it was always an exciting shop to visit. The tall building further up the street on the left with its unusual sloped top is the Crompton Hotel, now the site of Marks & Spencers. This cross-roads was nick-named 'Holy Corner': (Our) Lord Street, Church Street, (White) Chapel and Paradise Street met here.
