This house was built for William Pickles Hartley when the preserves manufacturing was transferred from Bootle to Aintree. The Pickles family moved to a large villa in Southport in the early twentieth century. This house was used as an office until the factory closed in the 1960s after a take over by Schweppes who moved production down south.

The building behind the church was St John the Evangelist primary school. The bright looking building just beyond, is the school canteen. It was a new building at the time the photo was taken. The school closed in the eighties. The church is still functioning.

Warbreck railway station.The station was built in 1928 to serve the expanding residential area near to Walton Vale. It could only gain significant business from summer season excursions to Ainsdale, Birkdale and Southport. From 05/01/52 the line serving the former two locations, and Southport Lord Street closed. A lightly used all stations passenger service starting at Aintree Central, routed mainly to Manchester, continued until 1960 when it was ended - Special Grand National excursion trains to Aintree Central ran through the station until 1966

This was a goods only railway branch to the Langton Dock. It was formerly owned by the Midland Railway, one of the owning partners of the Cheshire Lines. The branch became part of the London Midland and Scottish Railway from 1923 - When the railways were nationalised in 1948, this branch, along with the Cheshire Lines, was absorbed into BR London Midland Region.

This loco is hauling quite a lengthy goods train tender first. It is an LMS Fowler 4F 0-6-0 positioned in the photo as having just passed Fazakerley North Junction signalbox. It looks likely it will take the line curving to the right which is the northern spur of the Walton triangular junction, and may continue onwards to Walton-on-the Hill and the tunnels down to Huskisson Freight Terminal near Sandhills.
