£3m 'heart' puts new life into suburbia

Page One of the Supplement (left) describes the new building as "the first of ten district centres which will eventually encircle the city and put life into Liverpool's suburbia. ... It will eventually be the equal of Runcorn New Town centre and will provide for 80,000 people".

It's cosy, light and airy

"Women, it has been found, don't like wide-open spaces and here they will be greeted by a cosy, intimate atmosphere. It's an attractive red-brick building, and inside there's no chance of losing your way".
