    Everton has some great history attached to it. Eastbourne st, Westbourne st and all those leading up to Brunswick Road were cleared then the infamous Radcliffe estate appeared in the mid 70s - only to be cleared itself a decade later.

    Try Norris Green. I used to hang around loads of the streets that have now gone. A lot has gone, the school I went to, Broadway baths, Sayers to name a few. It has changed a lot. Some of it looks very strange now.

    Fred Sayer, the great man who started his business in Old Swan...
    his ashes were apparently scattered on the Lorenzo drive factory site, by reception, in a flower bed.
    It's all flattened now, how sad.

    The trouble with looking for the history of Norris Green Zaps, and i've tried, is because before the late 1920s, it was mainly fields so is relatively new. The 1800s pics in the LRO search room will not include Nogsy but the likes of Everton and Toxteth are catered for in abundance.

    The Beacon Light, I remember it well! I had a pal who lived in Petton St, we used to drink in the Beacon Light, played darts there on Fridays. One Friday evening about 7.30 we put our name down for a game of doubles on the dart board, once we got on the board we remained unbeaten for the whole evening. The entire dart team tried to shift use but we beat everyone who tried to knock us off the board. We were asked to join the darts team but refused, as it might have cramped our drinking style.

    I lived in Petton Street too but when I lived there it was surrounded by a bland council estate

    I'm going back to the late fifties early sixties. A block of flats next to the library with a row of older houses and a woodyard opposite. Also some very old sandstone houses on the Beacon Lane end.

    Some old pictures and postcards of early Everton. One picture showing Prince Ruperts Cottage .

    The first picture shows Prince Ruperts Cottage, the view is looking up village street with your back towards the lockup.
    The second picture shows the lockup area as viewed from the bottom of Everton Brow.
    The third picture is the Everton hilside viewed from what is now the beginning of Great Homer St.
    Fourth picture is a view of the old beacon, which was situated approximately on the corner of St Georges churchyard and Northumberland Terrace.
    Fifth view is Everton hillside looking from the Kirkdale rd end of Great Homer St.
    The last two are two views of the lockup and brow with the toffee shop. these two pictures are from two old postcards which I purchased some years ago.

    More to follow when I can dig them out, (if you would like to see them!)

    When they demolished all the 1960 flats around the lockup, they should have reinstated the village. Many developers would have willing built it. It would have acted as a catalyst for regeneration in the north end. Brought it up market. It is not too late.
