Thread Name: Lyr Req: Maggie May (from A. L. Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A. L. Lloyd's Maggie May
When I was an apprentice on the docks in Liverpool back in the 50s I often used to walk home via Scotland Road.
I'm pretty sure that it has now disappeared completely, but even in those days much of the property in the road was derelict, largely due to bomb damage, but one of the buildings left standing among the rubble was Berry's Pawnshop.
The locals insisted that it was the original 'Kelly's Pawnshop' from the song.
