    Default 1970s Liverpool

    I knew I had some pictures of the sailors home being demolished - I found them tonight whilst looking for something else.

    I've also included the other pictures from the same reel of film - I reckon it was the first winter I was in Liverpool, which would be 1970.

    Canning Street - note the crane still on the Cathedral. The white house below the crane in the picture is where my girlfriend lived.



    This shows the middle section of Canning Street, still with the Apostolic Church intact:



    Catharine Street/Canning Street junction - the white house where my girlfriend lived.



    Falkner Square - Huskisson Street side (I think)?



    Falkner Square - Grove Street side:



    Huskisson Street. This house was used as residential accommodation for staff from "The Blackie" and I had to do some temporary wiring in there before they could move in as the vandals had been in and nicked all the cables.


    ADVERTISING






    This is the Sailors' Home being demolished, showing the interior framework.



    Two more views of demolition in progress:





    St Bride Street, looking towards the Women's Hospital:

    I agree, great images from times and places I remember well.

    I wonder if I could have your permission to reproduce the sailor's home demolition pics on my own sailor's home page? (with full credit of course)

    I was in school Liverpool girls college on Grove Street at this time, and rememeber the area well, we walked to our "school church" which was the Anglican cathedral (not many can say this was their school church I bet !), and our swimming baths was the university baths.
    There were some amazing looking buildings in the area but sadly one after the other was pulled down !, and my old school followed after I left.
    Your photos are a great reminder !.

    The bedsit on our landing was occupied by a young lady on the game, would that be her? If so, you were not alone!

    But I'm not thinking of her like that, I'm thinking of her avatar like that! It's certainly wide eyed - I'm just guessing about the legless bit.

    Incidentally, I've always loved that song.

    No. not since summer really. I may get chance to go tuesday but its a busy time of year. maybe take some modern pics of area??? Still trying to track down pics of st patricks hyslop/upper hill street so cant decide which to go for if i make it to liverpool. i need to fit some christmas shopping in too. So much to do-so little time. But i have managed to get a few pics of the area from people on friends reunited and off here-this site is amazing-hope i can manage when it changes -im not good with navigating. Ive spoken to liverpool record office too so if i go there they may have stuff. They found me some amazing pictures of a pub called the old curiosity vaults in park lane last time-which were brilliant-i was so chuffed.

    Everyone loves the accent. People used to ask me to say stuff everywhere I went and I don't even have a great Scouse accent. Let us know when you're next in the Pool and I'll buy ya a drink.

    will do. wont be this side of 2009 now-no time and lots to do. where do you go thats good??? I somtimes get in some liverpool pubs as i help out my sister with pub vending machines and its a rare old treat to do liverpool. I notice that the people in the bars in liverpool are far more friendly than the manchester ones we do-no offence to them , but its true!! The staff and customers. I just feel at home there for some reason. Theres a good one on the big main street near egerton street in liverpool 8-well two actually-one on the right and one close by on the left-and they are really friendly staff in there. They always offer you a brew and a smile. will just check the map to see if i can suss out the road-egerton street is on the left as you drive down -cutting off this main road. do you know it???

    More 'social cleansing' from 1971 - nothing has changed in 40 years.
