    Red face russell street and brownlow hill

    hi everone. would like to hear from anyone who lived in russell street/brownlow hill ,city centre during the 1960's.
    one childhood memory of mine is cleggs the timber yard i think it was back russell street, we kids used to bundle
    firewood and pack them into tea chests, not sure how much we used to get paid, maybe somebody remembers it
    more clearly than me and would like to tell more about those days.

    I lived in Sherdley Street just off Crown Street in the 1960s. Just a short stroll from Brownlow Hill and Paddington. I remember the houses being demolished and the university buildings replacing them, and the steady rise of the Metropolitan Cathedral.

    Am I mixed up? ... the left is Brownlow Hill with the Liverpool University clock tower in the distance.

    Mount Pleasant is to the right...

    The clock tower still looks the same...
