    Default It all came tumbling down

    anyone got this short pictorial book by Freddy O'conner?

    Opening the cover of the book reveals a picture of a street running parallel with another street,there is no indication of the two streets so this is a long shot anyone know those two streets?

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post but I just don't know where to post this one.

    Hi Mandy
    How do you know exactly it was 1967? the reason I asked the question is because I'm sure its the street I used live in as a child but not the street you named, I could be wrong but thats why I need to know for certain.

    LOL I just cottoned on when the book starts its numbering its starts at seven,WHY! if I go from the front cover and read each page as a number then the front cover is number one but thats not how a booklet should be numbered...was Freddy being funny on this him being a scouser anyway?

    ps...I cannot find reference to that either on page 2 its blank.
