    The web page to the book has a facility for looking up every family that was living in the area in 1960. I've found us and loads of family and friends on it.

    The author of the book Ken Rogers (left) is an echo journalist as is Peter Grant who has written books, his latest being about the dockers. Here they were at the Big History Festival in the St. Georges Hall the other month.

    I've just finished reading " The lost tribe of Everton & Scottie Road" by Ken Rogers and found it most enlightening. Coming from the Everton area I was always likely to enjoy the book, but the author also explains the council politics behind the "resettlement" of the Everton community. I'm sure "macca" will find some answers to his questions if he reads this book with an open mind.

    Great to see pictures of the old school. I've got mixed memories of my time there, but it was a good school generally. Ted Ray, Artur Askey and Leonard Rossiter were old boys of the Collegiate and my mam and grandparents were so proud when I was accepted.
    Thanks Lindylou

    I have read the book also it is a good insight into the slum clearance programme and life in the late 50’s early 60’s, plenty of good pictures.

    Cool Lost Tribe corrections

    Unfortunately there appears to be some editing errors on the photography side of the book. Pages 30 and 31 are mirror images of the area. My friend Stanier spotted this. A corrected version is shown which could save hours of confusion.

    Myself and Ged agree that the picture on page 144 is not the demolition of Rossie school but the much earlier construction.
    I still think the book is a very good read, just pointing out the errors for accuracy if the book is updated.
    My errors!!! Pages 30 and 31 should be 20 and 21, page 144 should be 164, I'll bring my doctors note in tomorrow!
    Thanks again, Ged (see next post).
    Cheers, Chas

    Chas. How strange, pages 30 and 31 of my copy are text. The picture you've shown there is on page 20 of mine.

    The 'demolition' of Rossy school picture is on page 164 and is actually the construction showing brick layers at work and no Heights in the background.

    I have a lot of the photographs in this book from the LRO but lots of good additions too.

    I'm hanging my head in shame, thanks Ged, you're right. The pages are 20 and 21 and 164, I'll edit the post. It was very late when I posted it and I didn't have my glasses on. Ta for the nudge.
    Best wishes,
    Chas

    Ha ha - no probs. I thought I had an updated edition already then. It looks a good read at 220 odd pages.

    Ged! a number of the pictures came from the Shrewsbury Club Archives. If you look in the front you will see the Archive Team get a mention. We have a whole series of the construction of Rossie School, found them in the club.

    Got hold of Ged's books on Thursday. I've finished reading the first two and I'm looking forward to the third one when I get a bit of time. Great bit of research, Ged.
    Cheers,

    Ged!

    There is a sequence of photos showing the left hand side of Dorrington St coming down. I will see if I can post them up sometime.

    Hey, just found this while looking for something else and there's a few of my photos on it and a few that aren't mine (LRO) but that are credited to me. Seems well put together and worth a read.

    Very interesting map, growing up in Anfield (and doing many a pub crawl on Breck Road) mots people there I am sure would have had Everton starting at Breckfield Road North and Robson St. Buy as has been said it was always a vaguely defined area.

    The Park on the Hill was great in it's day (60s), it had a Bandstand, huts where they use to store things for us kids to play with, on open areas for football, you have to remember we had very little and the Park was somewhere for all the kids to go to. They knocked down Rupert Hill and bulit crap in it's place !

    Couldn't agree more,you do know that half the landfill from the clearence was used to build the park as it is now.

    I also agree that something like a 100 houses could have been built on that land and still enough ground for a largish park area,although having not seen what is below the ground I suspect that the engineers might have had their reasons for not building upon it? Sandstone is the dominent mass in that area and covers more than half of Everton.

    Everton Park, the one created in the 80s was due to go from Heyworth Street right down to Great Homer Street, thereby doing away with Netherfield Road as a through road altogether. It was only down to the sit-in by the Langrove Street residents that didn't want to see their perfectly good homes demolished and it's those we have to thank that getting from Everton Valley to Shaw Street for instance isn't the drag it would have been.

    Another drag is when you're on Scotland Road and want to get to Green Street. If your at St. Anthony's Church heading on the Southbound carriageway you either have to go down to Leeds Streets then double back at Vauxhall Road, thus doing a semi circle, or head down Wilbraham St, along Greaty Northbound, then go down Boundary Street then along the bumps of Latimer Street.

    Is it true that St Chrysostom's church in Aubrey St was demolished in error?
