Liverpool Corporation Tramways Office to the left — Seaforth & Litherland Railway Station to the right

The 'Cinder Path' ran alongside the railway hoardings to Violet Road & Aikenside Street. The original 'Cinder Path' was laid with cinders left over from the building of Litherland Army Camp WWI. The cinders in the camp were used for the parade ground and walkways. The headmaster of St Philip's school offered the services of his boys and himself to the council to help spread the cinders to do their bit for the war effort.
