    Maddox Street. Home to my great grandad according to the 1911 census. Maddox Street ran off Scotland Road alongside the original St. Martin's market. This alley belongs to No.3 court, he lived in No.7. The whitewashed walls added a bit of reflected light and the walls are braced with wood. A chap is seen standing at the far end, probably a council worker given his attire.

    Down the back streets we called them jiggers. I hated wild dogs and there was a few about. We taught a parrot in Bootle to say Liverpool instead of Everton while his owner was at work. Sat on the backyard wall everyday for hours telling it to say Liverpool. The ownwer went mad when the parrot changed colours. The jiggers smelled and people threw all kinds of stuff in them. Still growing up you don't think about it so much. At night the cats would cry, awfull noise they made.
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    Anyone remember the art of "berrying" or "bellying" as some peoople called it .
    You had to leap from one wall to the other in the back entries. The easy ones were the two walls were of the same height and it was possible to jump
    on your feet.Then there was the ones with the opposite wall being higher which you leapt and hung on with you hands before pulling yourself up onto the wall. The next one the opposite wall was lower which if you had good balance you jumped with you feet if not you leapt down to hit it with your belly and hands. Some were wider and higher and were classed as difficult.
    There was always a few of us with plaster of paris on our bones.
    When the Flash Gordon films were on the kids matinee,sacks were used as cloaks as we attempted to fly off the the back entry walls like Flash.

    Cracking views Joe, You've given me a bit of inspiration to get out and find these largely unseen parts of our city.

    Thanks for the pics, Greg's Dad - as always something untoward and
    interesting.
    And even the alleyways are in the sunshine!

    Hi all,
    does anyone here know when the use of the word WEINT,went out of use? Apparently, some of the alleyways,and small streets,down near the riverfront/town centre, were so named. i.e. Dawson's weint. These were still in existance in the 60's/70's!
    Thanks Steve.

    Yes, there was Ogden's Weint off Litherland Alley near to Benn's Gardens and Prison Weint near Tower Buildings. They seem to stem from the second lot of street naming after the original 7 streets in the 'H' shape.

    There's a Grange Weint off Grange Lane in Childwall, you can enter it by car but the far end is just a footpath.
    Doesn't look very 'weinty'.

    Thanks Ged,Davec,
    I wondered where the term came from,as I'd certainly never heard of it, before I saw a mention of it, on here! Dave, your mention of Grange weint,reminded me, that I had recently passed by this,not far from the site of Childwall hall,I think? And yeh, I agree,not even slightly weinty.
