it did that the first time, when I clicked on the link - then I looked and realised I'd got the spelling wrong. When I changed it, it was ok - try it again, purplekat (like the name :))

I cannot see that you have said which part of Toxteth Park you are interested in. At a large scale - town plan level - that shows street names you could end up buying quite a few.

If you tell me a street I can tell you which map to buy.

Thanks purplekat and paulene. I will try that link and see what comes up.

Ken,
This request was in connection with an earlier post regarding Jamaica Court, which I was told was  a court in Jamaica st. near Park Place. An ancestor of mine,Alice Smith, is on the cencus of 1841 as living in No 3 Jamaica Court. I was brought up just a few hundred yards from that area and I was curious to see what the area was like in those days. I have a number of local history books with photographs of these old courts some of which I can still remember from my childhhod in the 50s and early 60s. I understand that these particular courts had gone by the 1871 cencus but I need to check that out.
Thanks once again for your help,
Regards,
Dave

 :) Thanks very much for that Tony. It's exactly what I've been looking for. I am still a bit of a novice in this family history research but maybe I could return the favour one day.

Best wishes,
Dave
