    Default Lost Liverpool Suburbs & Districts

    This thread was started with the demise of some old Liverpool buildings. Then it was advocated it should include structures as well. Well what about districts?

    During the slum clearance programme of the 60ís and 70ís the entire district of Everton disappeared. With the exception of a few churches and a few pubs, every road with shops and streets with houses disappeared. A few new buildings have been built over the years but the main area has been turned into vast parkland.
    Some may say for the better and certainly there was a lot of slum property spread along the hillside, but think about it! One of the oldest villages on Merseyside has gone forever; the only trace left is the old lockup on the brow. How about that for culture?

    Samp. When you look at the pre war housing of Kirkdale's flower streets still going strong, and Lambeth Road, then there's the pre WWI housing on Summer Seat and Bevington Hill in Vauxhall. They have a lot more character than the new red brick housing that looks like anywhere land as it all looks the same. I think i'd rather see old conway st, havelock st, sackville st and Fairy st than the desolation that's there now.

    Anfield is losing a lot now. Kensington has lost loads and Toxteth. All houses that could have been fixed up instead of building these cardboard boxes.
