    An image with thanks to Johnny Blue.

    Great Homer Street looking North and quite a bit to see on here. At the bottom is my secondary school, St. Gregorys which became Campion and was demolished only about 18 months ago. A new development is already on its site. Just up from that on the pic is the red brick Rossy School on Roscommon Street. We moved into that for a year in about 1974 due to some work on St Gregs.

    The other red brick building over to the right by the high rise is St. Peters church and the Shrewsbury Club which is still there with all the new housing near it. The middle of the photo is taken up by maisonettes which were on Sackville Street, Dorrington Street, Arkwright Street and Lower Arkwright Street.

    Beyond those, only 3 of those 8 tower blocks are still standing. The 2 on Conway Street and Marwood Tower at Greaty points with Kirkdale Rd. The photo is definitely pre 88 due to some of the high rise still being there. Everton Park sports centre and its footy pitches behind stands out too.

    Don't know why there's a blue tint to it George, perhaps because it's Everton

    I don't know the area very well but I did have ancestors living in Arkwright Street. Is Great Homer Street the long road on the left of the pic?

    The last remaining Georgian Property on the East side of Everton Road.

    Everton Park was designed as layered ampitheatre bowls to enable public events to be held there. As can be seen by this view looking East across Netherfield Road, there is a curvature to the hillside which was intentional when laid out. Sadly, this usage has never been taken up properly though plans have been made in the past but scuppered along the way for one reason or another.

    Good to see this house refurbished, wish they'd do the same to the others on Everton Road.

    I'd love to see inside that house. I bet the rooms are nice. I wonder if they have kept original features?

    The original model of Everton Park published in the Echo had a large lake on it for sailboats and I think it ran down to Gt Homer St.

    It did indeed Joe. In fact had there not been protests from residents in Langraove Street, Netherfield Road was not now exist. The idea was for the park to run from Heyworth Street down to Great Homer Street. Here's another pic of how it was meant for artists to perform to those seated in curves like in an ampitheatre.

    Still say it was a waste of valuable land space for housing,at the end of the day thats all it is....empty space and nobody uses it except the girls of the night,and no Ged I don't visit the area.

    That park never really took off. Don't know why, but it has no atmosphere. It does feel like an empty space, and yet the area has reverted to it's original state which was hills and fields.
    A few people do use the park - mainly one or two dog walkers and people who park up their cars to look at the view. That's about it.
    I think there is the occasional event that goes on there - but the place just doesn't have a feel to it - not like Sefton or Calderstones has.
    It still has the feel of just being a divider between Heyworth, Netherfield and Gt Homer st.

    The fact that is hilly puts a lot of people off,they want to stroll in the park not puff and pant up hills. Seems to be used by joggers when I have visited.

    I should say that any green space in an urban area is a plus.
