    Default Everton Terrace

    Hi,
    Does anyone remember anything about Everton Terrace. My Great Grandma, Alice Owens ran a shop at 51 Everton Terrace. SHe had children called Billy (who died in WW1) Alice, Mary Catherine (she was known as Kate) Gertie Tom, Charlie, Joe and Lily. My Great Grandad lived there too until he died in abt 1919.
    Any info or pics would be fantastic.

    Thanx D x

    Thanks Steve.

    Yes wardleyd, the high rise pics page has some of the tower blocks on Everton Terrace and the post war b&w pages has some rows of houses. Your relatives may remember a tragic accident that happened in one of the houses there in the 50s.

    Ged your site is fantastic I spent one evening last week going through all the snaps! Even my friend in Kentucky was impressed haha!

    Anyway what I would like to ask is do you have anything on Amos Street, Everton? Not far from Netherfield Road I expect. My grandmother was raised there, she is now 95 and still going strong. I'm doing the family tree which is going great but I am after snaps of the areas.

    Thanks!

    You sure it was Amos Street? and not Pathamos Street?

    I lived round that area as a child but don't recollect an Amos Street,although I was a kid at the time maybe I'm wrong?

    Hiya Lou and welcome to the forum. Thanks for the comments about the site. There was an Amos Street too George, off your Hill actually - St. Georges Hill, it ran between Minera st and Cochrane St. I don't appear to have any pics of it as yet Lou but i'll look out for some next time i'm in the LRO.

    George, a question for you since you're ex Northumberland/York Terrace/Albion St area. I have a couple of pics on the high rise page of my site sent to me labelled as Cresswell Mount but showing the Cygnet pub on them and the corner of a bank - Do you recall them looking like that?

    I do Ged,why?the bank as you call it was a school and the playground showing in the pic is right on the edge of a slope.

    I remember going to a sunday playgroup at the end of Nethy/bottom of York Terrace...tis where I made paper mache puppet heads and got put in charge of the punch&judy show every sunday.

    Hiya George. Are we on about the same pics here.

    Check out this page. http://inacityliving.piczo.com/?g=33776503&cr=7

    Scroll down almost to the bottom. The pics on the 8th and 9th lines up. Is that tower block Cresswell mount - I don't remember it turning a corner like that and the roof line looks different but i'd never seen it from the back. Also the Cygnet pub is there and a building seeming to say Bank. What street would the bank and the pub be on.


    Cheers,

    Ged.

    How many lines up after the Cantril Farm pics Ged? I can't see any bank you're on about? can yer be more specific on the photo?

    Is it the pic showing the lorry turing the corner? and the line below it says...

    "Boundary Street in 1972 showing the row of Georgian terraces that contained doctors and dentists. Marwood Towers and Corinth Towers are between Great Homer Street and Netherfield Road in the distance"

    Go right to the bottom of the page.

    Then count up, either 8 or 9 lines - you see the words ANK so i'm assuming it's a bank

    There's two pics one on top of the other, each with the Cygnet pub on them. Do you recognise the area?

    Yes,the street by the ANK is either Adelaide St or Melbourne St? the Aussie named ones,are these the streets yer looking at? if its the ones on the other side by the Cygnet? then my map doesn't show these names as it ends there.

    Default Cresswell Mount

    You have got me going on this now.
    Although I grew up around that area it is all a bit vague to me now, but I have been trying to piece it together.
    Looking at those pics, the church referred to as St Polycarps and still standing today, the only one I can see on Bing maps is on the corner of Conway Street, which is a long way from Adelaide Street.
    Also looking at another pic, the view up Gordon Street, the flats appear to be on a much higher level than Netherfield Road, and behind a few of rows other dwellings, so it looks odd that the church is right behind them when they came down.
    Is the road between the Cygnet pub and the flats supposed to be Northumberland Terrace, isn?t that were the flats were on?
    Also the road markings do not seem apt for the area I am thinking of.
    Where about does John Bagots hospital fit around this, wasn't this somewhere behind the flats?
    Something does look familiar about it though.
    As I said, time has dimmed my brain so forgive me if I am talking rubbish.
    Fantastic site Ged, it has robbed me of many hours of my time.

    Anyway, this is me on my bike in Abbey Street, Grays the chemist at the top on Heyworth Street. Not sure when the street map is dated as it doesn't show any of the high rises.

    Pete.

    Give up Pete,I'm right and Northumberland Terrace was nowhere near that demolition of the flats.
    Northumberland Terrace was the next street to Albion St 3/4 of the way up York Terrace and York Terrace was next to Melbourne Street.

    John Baggots Hospital was on Havelock Street further along and up.

    Something does look familiar about it, but one of the others pictures shows a view of Cresswell Mount from Gordon street which is further along past Havelock street.

    You're too far along Nethy Pete,the sygnet pub was near to the end of Nethy..near the junction of Nethy and Great Homer street

    Yes , I know where you are talking about now and it does ring a bell.
    So that picture is not of Cresswell Mount which was the other end.

    That's not the Cygnet but the Crescent Vaults George and those are Everton Hieghts on Everton Terrace.

    Thanks for the kinds comments about the site Stanier, glad you like it.

    I think my text regarding that being St. Polycarps is wrong having looks at Polycarps again so still scratching my head.

    Stanier, snap - here's me on my trike with Holly Street tenements being demolished in 1969.

    Ged, I think this might help in solving that location.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSGmjjsWmYc


    There is mention of a pub called the cygnet and a row of shops protected by scaffolding.
    http://www.wikiwirral.co.uk/forums/u.../341615/3.html

    Birkenhead was also where I spent a bit of time. I wondedred why it was familiar.

    Pete Ged knows the demolition took place on Nethy road north,he's just curiuos as to the streets in pic,Birkenhead has nothing to do with it.

    But then again I've studied that clip you posted and something tells me you could be right? the windows in the heights look very similair but the block doesn't show the staircase frontage in Geds pics

    There is one on here that does.
    http://images.google.co.uk/imgres?im...a%3DN%26um%3D1

    Even the round portholes. And also where the higher levels had verandahs (sp) that were removed prior to demolition but you can still see the doors to them.

    hi Steve I think that photo is of the small park that was further along Netherfield Rd close to Hapton St or "cardiac Hill" as a taxi driver once called it when I asked him to go that way
    the park is still there but now its part of the bigger Everton Park
