All that's missing is the "Diddymen"

Left to right. Harry Quinn, Ken Dodd, Bryan Newman and Stan Brittain.
A fabulous photo from the 1960's publicity launch of the Harry Quinn race team, which featured the great Stan Brittain. Stan hailed from Ken Dodd country, Knotty Ash. During his career he achieved many successes including-  2nd and a 3rd place in the awesome Peace Race in Eastern Europe. He also competed in, and finished the Tour de France.
Anybody recognize the venue?.
