    Default Street Views - Speke

    As part of my continuing effort to catalogue Street Views across Merseyside, I paid a visit to Speke this morning. I was able to take quite a number of photographs, mainly of housing and shops. They appear below...

    Western Avenue:









    Speke Pubs:


    Mill House - Corner Alderwood Avenue and Miners Way


    ADVERTISING





    The Orient - Corner Eastern Avenue and East Millwood Road

    Central Way:


    Corner Central Way and Oldbridge Road

    Southern Road:



    Shops at Speke Church Road / Speke Town Lane "The Crescent":







    Shops at Alderwood Avenue:



    ... and Buckley Walk, on the perimeter of the airport.



    ... More Speke photos soon.

    All still very thirties - curves and lines - like the old airport and hangars. Won't be long before those shops are down by the look of the tinned up flats above them.

    I like pics like this Ross.

    Nice one Ross. Good shots. It looks very run down. Are all the shops empty.

    I'm glad you like the photos... and, yes - very thirties. That's one of the reason's why I'm interested in these buildings. As far as I know, the estate was built between the mid to late thirties and the late fifties.

    Social housing is of great interest to me, and these large estates such as Speke (and Norris Green) are fantastic examples of quality social housing on a grand scale.

    The estate - from what I saw today - is not bad at all. Many of the houses are well-kept, and occupancy is high. The shops are a different matter, but that's the same story on most estates today. Just look at the new Morrisons store only a short walk away, and you can see why the shops are empty.

    I'll add some more photos of this sort - and if anybody else has any I'd be very interested to see them.

    Incidentally, there is a website at www.spekeliverpool.co.uk that looks interesting, although I've not yet had a proper look at it.
