Malone Paper Company

Dear Webmaster
I recently visited Liverpool in order to trace birth relatives and in particular was trying to trace a lady called Dorothy Malone. I used to visit her at her company which was located in a street off Church Street (heading towards Central Station, the street would have been on the right). The street and the buildings on it appear to have been demolished as it is now a pedestrianised area with new retail outlets etc.
I believe that she owned a paper company and her offices were on the first floor of the building. It may have been called the Malone Paper Company. I have contacted company records in London but without the full name and address of the company, they have been unable to help.
Could you let me know if a map exists of the roads around Church Street in the fiftees/early sixtees. Also, are there any records kept in Liverpool of companies that existed in the Church Street area at that time that may help me to locate the exact name of the company.
Thank you very much for your help.

Elbow Lane (Sweeting Street)

Hello Rob,

whilst researching my family history I came across a reference to Elbow Lane, Liverpool. After weeks of looking thorough many old maps I cannot locate the street. Do you know if it ever existed and where.

Brickworks Walton, Vauxhall or Anfield area


I was wondering if anybody could tell me if there was ever a brickworks in Liverpool, maybe around the Walton, Vauxhall or Anfield area.

It may sound strange but whilst walking with my 4 year old neice in Stanley Park one day she stated she “used to live around here but there was a brick makers then and horses”.

It would be really interesting to find out if there was indeed a brickmakers within the vicinity. Any information would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks
