    Liverpool 1969

    I notice, from Google Earth, that all of the houses on Grovehurst Ave have been demolished. Was there any special reason, or is this just the start of a re-development program for Dovecot?

    Many thanks for your answer. It appears to be the only road missing in that area in my AtoZs. It will be interesting if you can find any remains.
