    Default Yates Street - L8

    I was very pleased to come across this street today when in Toxteth to photograph the heights on Mill Street...

    This is a lovely terrace, and very well kept... This must have been a great place to live in years gone by.

    See video:

    After seeing the video, I'd often wondered where this street was and today I fell across it accidentally.

    I think they are the only houses left in the city with those raised pavement/landings. There was lots of them at one time. Some had house below the landings making them a sort of flats. I never figured out why they built them like that, raised up. It just doesn't seem logical to do so as it would have been cheaper putting them at ground level. Maybe something to do with rear entry access.

    The church is St. Gabriels. The wrecked school was Beaufort St Board school. I think is it totally demolished now. It was listed but they allowed vandals to wreck the place.

    The film These Dangerous Years, with Frankie Vaughan in, was filmed around there in the 1950s. Those two streets are forever having film crews filming around them.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    My late wife was instrumental in setting up the Housing Co-op in the Corn and Yates Streets when they were purchased from Stansfield for a nominal sum.

    You must be very proud of her achievement, which was to the benefit of the local community and of our collective heritage.
