Local history lesson (March 29, 1945)

March 29, 1945
When Liverpool authorities decided to widen Dale Street in 1820 they found that owing to a defect in an Act they could not eject an old shoemaker who refused to leave a brick cottage which stood on the opposite corner to the Old White Bear Inn, in Hockenhall Alley.

For many years after Dale Street was widened the old cottage remained standing in the middle of the road!
