I listened to Frances Green’s memories (15th August 2009)of now defunct Liverpool tram service, having only just discovered the interview.
I knew France when we were growing up in Liverpool, living in Withers Street. We kept in touch for many years after we both married but lost contact after a while.  It would be really nice to be in contact with Frances again after so long.
I now live in St Helens and see that her interviewee address was St Helens. If she or anyone who knows her sees these comments, perhaps contact will be made! Doreen Blower (Nee Parry)

I remember the tram depot.
I became an avid collector of tram numbers until one day a ticket inspector invited me inside the sheds. He showed me a book with every tram number I wanted. I no longer wanted to be a tram spotter.
I lived in Brompton Road until 1963.
My farther worked at the Lucas factory on Edge Lane Drive. The Vauxhall car factory opened up in Ellesmere Port and he started there.
