Sefton Road Roundabout, 1955
Sefton Road Roundabout, 1955
Another view of the roundabout at the junction of Sefton and Hawthorn Roads in 1955. Not the best quality image but it has some interesting items. Note the pre-fabs on the far corner, these lasted until at least the 1970's, The Regal cinema can be seen in the distance and the steeple of St Phillip's Church is peeking under gas lamp. The Leyland Ribble bus is on the 55 route from Ford to Liverpool city centre. Not sure about the cars, but I think that one could be a Standard Vanguard and the other an Armstrong Siddeley. Please correct me if I am wrong. Another view SJ3397 : Sefton Road Roundabout, 1955
