    There were quite a lot of prefabs in Speke - the end nearest were the airport originally was. We lived in one in Dymchurch Road from 1955 to 1961.

    These were the ones in the now abolished Croft Street I mentioned earlier. There is a booklet on the Belle Vale prefabs in News from Nowhere showing plenty of pics.

    Was it prefabs that were opposite the Royal years ago? I thought I remember seeing caravans there sometime in the 1970's...But maybe it was prefabs.

    There were some caravans located somewhere around the Everton brow area. After all the streets were demolished travellers moved in.
    This would probably be around late 1960s early 70s.

    Does anyone remember ?

    The travellers were on the right side of Shaw Street as you approached Everton Brow - about 300 of them if I remember rightly. It was the late sixties/early seventies.
