A Pictorial History of Liverpool
I’ve been looking for a decent photo of this corner for ages. In my day, when I was friendly with the son of the landlord, a Mr Pepper, it was a Threlfalls pub. No indication of the name in this picture though. In recent times it became “Peppers” but the staff had no idea why, until I explained it was probably in memory of the landlord. I was horrified, mortified and mystified when upon visiting the city I found it demolished and replaced, as you say by a very undistinguished block of apartments etc. Planners betray the city.
My great grandfather ran a cocoa rooms for the Workmen’s Public House company at number 11 – I believe that is the blue building in this photo. They provided an alternative to pubs where people could get a cheap meal and a bed if needed.
