No he`s not Gerrard. He`s from Sheffield, mate of mine down here in Oxford. I lived all my life on
Scottie, first in Woodstock Gdns, ( Woody ), then after they were getting knocked down, we lived on "The Radcliffe" for six moon before moving to Benledi St.
Me Mar & Dar still there though! Got your personal msg lad, cheers, speak to you again soon.
Cheers for the link to Scottie press mate! Found a great section with photos of lots of old pubs on The Road. Memory Lane eh!! TOP!
Anyone know when "View 146" was completed? It's the redevelopment of two ex-council flats into swanky apartments just off Great Homer Street.
Any info would be welcome!
So that would make it 2004! Thanks for that Dave!
I couldn't remember which year but I do remember the two blocks shrouded in hoardings which I used to spot when going into the Wallasey Tunnel.
Here's a couple of pics which confirms 2004.
The first one is May 2003 and the second is July 2004
Great image Gerard! Love that night time shot!
Thanks for the info guys, can I be cheeky and ask you wonderfull people if you know the name of this tower block? ...
It's on the corner of Great Homer Street and Boundary Street and is next to the Anchor on that open paved area next to the junction with Smith Street and Kirkdale Road.
Any info would be helpful! I just want to make my captions less vague!
All the best
I used to pass it quite often en-route to Wallasey from Northumberland but I just couldn't think of its name! Keeps happening to me at the moment!
Thanks for that Gerard!
Shame on you's ha ha, it's in my first book, a 1960s shot of it when the grounds where the anchor and buoy are was a kids playground.
I don't mean to be rude but that's got to be one of the most depressing areas of not only Liverpool but England.
Which, Great Homer Street? It's vibrant of a saturday when the market's there and people come from far and wide and project Jennifer which gets under way in earnest shortly should bring a bit more life back to it. The area, along with the top end of Scotland road was decimated in the 60s.
Its just a shame that it's lost most of it's neighbourhoods thats all.
Personally I really hope project Jennifer goes ahead and new life is breathed into Everton because people there deserve better.
I would be concerned about the proposed Sainsbury's Supermarket though. It's alright having a small neighbourhood Kwiky but a large supermarket might affect the likes of Walton which possibly already has a fragile shopping district seeing as it is about to have two Sainsbury's supermarkets rather than just the one.
Not that I want to meet you or anything..Just trying to work out what Kind of Social Life you have around there...
Do you still live there !!...Cause I've never ever heard of anyone calling where they Live the Most depressing area in England..Tell me yer actin the goat here...
The town end of Scotty was destroyed by the building of the tunnel and has never recovered. There must be some way of reconnecting Everton with the city centre and Islington.
There is loads of waste land around the tunnel and surely could be used somehow. Have you ever tried walikng from St Anthony's to town? It is virtually impossible linked by one bridge.

I never said it was. Anyway I was only discussing how a poor inner city area could be improved to benefit the people who live there.
However, I know where you are coming from you are the type who is still bitter that Cilla left.
Try not to turn nasty guys!
It's great to see that you have pride in where you live Gerard; Its not often you find someone like that!
By the way; I don't normally go and sell me Flickr Space in the forums but as I have been asking for some assistance, you might all be interested to see the images which have just been uploaded now!
Once again, Many thanks for your help! Especially Dave and Gerrard!
Oh well! Pictures will, I am sure, capture the flavour of the day.
The Door Bell
The voices in my head
Can I bring that model and me book Gerard and i've got Cilla's 'Anyone who had a heart'
