I was with Arrowsmith Holidays for several years in the 60@s and to work in Bold Street was then the equivalent of London's ' elite ' what a wonderful place with all the top name retailers. I still visit Bold Street ' bit of history ' wonderful memories.

My mum, Joyce Fox worked at Cripps when she left school in 1952. She remembers some of the people mentioned above and a lady named Delores. Mum went on the work for Singers also in Bold Start and then Singers in Garston.

Deni, I delivered milk to the dance school in 1963. I always thought the building reminded me of the American private eye offices. Was the shoe shop Colinsons? One year they had shoes in the window made as the Union Jack.

I remember going down Bold Street one evening to see That Petrol Emotion, in 86 or 87 (?) It was a small place, upstairs I think, with a good crowd that night. Band was pretty good as I recall. Around that time, and earlier, The System, The State, The Bluecoat, Planet X / Jody's and a few other venues.

I stumbled on this site by accident and it brought back fond memories of the 50s and 60s. I worked at the Pink Parrot in the evenings as a croupier and at Littlewoods in old Hall street in the day. Earlier at Morris and Jones in Wood street the wholesale food firm. The Jacaranda from memory was in Slater street and would have never passed any health and safety regulations but what fun. I can't remember the names of the other clubs in the vicinity where we would go when the Parrot was not open on a Sunday. But all happy memories.

I too used to love Bold Street. Looking in shops windows with my mother when I was a child. In the 60's spending time in El Cabala and La Cabala - making one glass of Russian tea last all evening. In reply to Rona's qustion, the till was on the right. I always had my hair done at, I think the name was, Michael Andrea's and my brother Bill, a well known Liverpool photographer, Peter Kaye, had one of his studios on the right hand side coming down from St Lukes. He photographed The Beatles and all the Liverpool stars of that era.

Does anyone remember the Shelagh Elliot Clarke Dance School at the bottom of Bold Street? Any fond memories of traipsing up loads of stairs before a gruelling day in the studios? There was a shoe shop nearly opposite that also sold ballet shoes. I wonder if anyone remembers the name of the shop or the name of the owner? I loved Bold Street - it was full of interesting locales, classy and sassy! When the Dance School moved to the Crane Building I still used to go up and down Bold Street to window shop. Great and fond memories!

I remember visiting Cripps with my Mum and Sister,in the 1950s we visited my great aunt Miss Agnes Wood a tailoress she always had a tape measure around her neck and a few sweets in her drawer, it was such a posh shop to us, but we always behaved ourselves. Happy memories.
