    Default Wavertree Vale pre demolition

    I was hoping somebody somewhere may have any Pictures of this road or adjoining roads as it is where my Mum's parents lived and i remember going there a lot as a child in 60's &early 70's. My two Aunties lived in the next street too. There was a pub on both corners with prefabs opposite and shops along the main road including a chippy. My Nan's house was the first one next to the pub and she used to clean in there.
    I understand it was demolished quite a few years ago, sadly.
    I am getting my Mum a book about Liverpool as she enjoyed looking through the books on st helens I have (we moved there when i was 8 so remember the town as it was at that time)

    Any help is much appreciated. i really enjoy looking at the inacityliving website but there are only few pics of the High street of wavertree.
    Thanks

    Hello Steffy.

    Glad you liked my site, Wavertree is clearly a district i'll have to concentrate a bit more on

    Have you seen the Wavertree Historic Society run by my good friends Bob and Mike.

    Introducing the Wavertree Society, Liverpool

    You'll also find Mike's book advertised on there.

    Liverpool record office search room will also offer you a plethora of brilliant photographs from their archives if ever you can get down there.

    There is at least one 1949 photograph, ask for the ENG number and there's also a book with the street listings:

    I spent a good few weeks of my babyhood in Olive Mount hospital with what was then a life threatening gastro enteritis.


    Here's Philips Butchers in 1950 on the corner of Picton Road and Carno st, just 5 or 6 streets along from Wavertree Vale.

    Thanks Ged for all the information. ..
    I will scour my local Book Shop also.
    Both my parents and their brothers and sisters lived in Liverpool (my dad in Huyton) so I have memories of all the different areas . My Uncle lived in Myrtle Gardens before they got demolished.

    Default Wavertree Vale

    I have a picture of part of Wavertree Vale as it was in about 1971. I don't know how to attach it here but can send it to an email address.

    my dad lived in Wavertree Vale when he was a nipper.
    I remember the last of the big houses burning down there when I was kid.

    we ended up living in Ash Grove then after I married I was in Ash Close which ran into what was the Vale.

    The Belle Vue was next door to us and kids in the beer garden used to throw stuff at the dog in the garden.

    one day hubby was going to the shop and had just walked past the side entrance to the pub when a bar stool came crashing through a window behind him!

    after several unsavoury incindents (including a shotgun attack) it was closed.
