    Default Havelock Street, 1960s

    This photograph of Havelock Street was photographed by Karl Hughes to be used as an illustration in Liverpool author, Frank Shaw's book 'My Liverpool', published in 1971. What is immediately apparent is the traffic-free street, giving the children the freedom to play outside. With no open space nearby and other amenities very limited, the street became a focal point for the community in a way that no longer exists.

    I see this picture crop up many a time on Yo and the net and as I grew up in this Area ie Albion Street, I don't think this is Havelock street ie Havelock Street was the longest declining Street in the area and this one is too short so I think this is either Joshua Street or Daniel Street?

    I may be wrong but willing to be corrected.

    This proves it wasn't Havelock Street ie you can see a street sign near the bottom on the left.at the bottom of havelock street was the wall of John Baggots Hospital on the same left.

    That is Havekock St, it did have a handrail on the righthand side going up. The children in the photo are blocking it from view.

    The hand rail didn't come till some years later? however there is a hand rail going down Mitford Street which was on the otherside of John Baggots Hospital.
