[QUOTE=Davec;171800]The only hill we had was the gentle one from Prinny to Admiral St.
All the other 'hill' streets (Grins, Fern, and Pim) give you alternative hits when entered in Google, but not 'Vron'.
In fact I can't think of a 'proper' word that kicks off with 'vr'.
Dave[/QUOTI think I remember our street had a good old slope to it, Micawber St. So, the rest of the Dickens character streets must have too. Not Weller,that ran through them.
All I could find in the dictionary was 'Vroni K?nig-Salmi' Told you it was for me, now it contains my nickname Roni too,

Off LisBURN Lane, Liverpool 13.
Auburn, Bankburn, Craigburn, Deansburn, Eskburn, Fairburn, Gorseburn, Heyburn Roads.
Anyone know why?
In Skelmersdale, each georgraphical region seems to have estates beginning with the same letter. Probably helps the local postmen out a bit.
I am guessing Everton had an Australian grouping-I found Adelaide, but not Melbourne. Are there more?
Hmmm. What no streets to commemorate musicians?!

How's about the Tom Jones roads ?
That's not unusual.
And opposite the pub is Ford Cemetery - or to some...The green green grass of home.
You just can't "Help Yourself" can you
( see what I did there ... )
Pair of Drunken Sods!
From Greek mythology - Kirkdale district, Medea st, Jason walk, and Zante st (Zante is a place in Greece).
Zante st was demolished some time ago but was right by Medea st.
Are there any more around that area ?
I bought a great book at Old Swan PDSA shop last week called "Street names of the city of Liverpool" author Steven Horton. In it he states the 7 original Liverpool city streets are:
Castle St , High St ( formerly Juggler St) , Old Hall St , Dale St , Tithebarn St , Chapel St , and Water St.. if thats correct and I am sure someone out there can confirm it do we have a set we could call "The Originals"
I grew up in Ferrey Road, Fazakerley, on the Copple House Road end. Our next roads were Gribble and Grieve Road. No idea how they came about, but further down the estate, opposite Fazakerley Hospital there is a whole series of names named after Boer War Battles. Harrismith Road, Delagoa Road, Manica Crescent, Montrovia.
I am sure the "Poet Streets" in Marsh Lane have been mentioned. Hemens, Longfellow,etc
Off Cuckoo Lane in Gateacre there are few bird names Fieldfare Close, Redwing Lane , Siskin Green
I am a late entry to this forum and have found this thread very intresting. Re Ship Roads I used to live in Sylvania Road between Mauratania and Lusitania Roads in what I refered to as Cunard Village.
I may have missed this entry in the thread, if so apologies, but if not try this.
Start at Spellow Lane and "walk" north ( By walk I mean using an A_Z or Google Street view) Look at each street names initial letter,
Keep going up to Arnot Street and it will spell out all but the last two letters of the names of the firm of builders responsible.
I think the last letters should be M and S
The Welsh builders were a firm called Owen and William Owen Elias
Starting from the road I lived in Croxteth - Sceptre Road/Walk, Scone Close/Walk, Orb Walk/Close, Throne Road/Walk, Sovereign Way/Road/Walk, Garter Close, Regal Road, Curtana Crescent, Spur Close, Coronet Road, Ampulla Road, Dymoke Road, Mace Road.

And also, Griffin, Dragon and Unicorn.
Also - Trispen, Mullion, Petherick, Dodman, Wendron, Delabole, Tintagel, Looe, Falmouth, Portlemouth, Otterton...and there's a couple more around their which may or may not be from Devon/Cornwall.
WELL DONE Lizzie 1.
Naming streets after groups of things, birds, towns, jewels and the like is not as clever as what this firm of builders did, which was to use the initial letters of the street names to encode their names.
I know it is probably heresy to mention it here,but on the Bootle Forum site there are stories about another Welsh Builder "Klondike" Jones. The streets he built were named after his children, I think, Glynn St. Edith Rd, Elizabeth Rd.
Some Welsh streets from the Everton area..........Aber Street, Lavan Street, Tegid Street, Ogwen Street.
