    I agree shellylpool. I grew up on Huskisson St and went to Granby St school. It was a very mixed area but as a kid always felt safer there than in the next door 'whiter' areas. Also think the...

    It's interesting that you call the Granby by that name.
    Officially it had been the Prince's since 1932, but it had been the Granby before that, and the Granby Hall before it was converted into a...

    Thanks Brian - too kind. The duck story is true and just seemed to add to the unreality.

    When the riots happened, the Rialto was just a shell of its former self. It had spent time as a bingo hall...

    Not sure there was much of a recipe for pea wack. Was it not just a ham hock, piles of lentils, water and salt? Simmered for days so it started as soup and ended being spread on bread.

    I think you may be right about the name. It sold various meat items as well as fish. When I remember it, it was run by a stout, jolly couple. They sold exotic items like shark. At one point in the...

    The other thing about Granby Street was that there were no pubs. I think that there was some restriction imposed by the original (Methodist?) owners of the land that kept any development 'dry'.

    It was a strange day. Quiet. The sort of quiet you get when everyone holds their breath. Liverpool 8 after the fighting and before the Garden Festival. Picking up the pieces. Smelling of damp smoke...

    St Margaret's (briefly), Granby St then Alsop (started before it went comprehensive). I hated it too but, with hindsight, it was probably better than a lot.

    Speaking as a childhood resident of Huskisson Street, the whole thing always struck me as a farce. Not only was he the first railway fatality (at what speed of train?) but, when designing the...
