Reporter reader Margaret Crosbie spotted a familiar face on this old Knowsley Road snap we published last month.

She said: “The big guy at the front is my brother, Anthony Byrne. He lived in Vincent Street. Our parents, Frank and Rachel, kept pubs including the Oddfellow Arms at Billinge and the Union Hotel in Hall Street.

“They were the last landlord and landlady at the Griffin Inn in College Street.”
