    Default Roe Street, 1964

    When people talk about ‘lost’ Liverpool, it is individual buildings that usually come to mind – such as the Custom House or Sailors’ Home. Their loss is relatively easy to assess in terms of their architectural and historical merits. The Theatre Royal in my last post is one such building but it also illustrates precisely [...]

    That's Queen Square to the left.
    You have to be at least 50 to remember anything in this shot.
    Great to see it in colour (which I prefer - never could understand why people rate B&W so highly).

    I think this is the area? The map was surveyed in 1848 [with updates added through to 1864] from the superb 'OLD ORDNANCE SURVEY MAPS' series, the Godfrey edition. http://www.alangodfreymaps.co.uk/

    The buildings in the photograph may be a later addition than those shown on the map? The image itself was taken from St George's Hall looking back towards Roe Street [left] & St John's Lane [right]



    Hi Colin, I hope you don't mind I've used a thumbnail B&W version of your image to show location. If you object I'll remove it?

    Thanks Darren

    I thought it was taken from the other corner further up Roe St on St. John's Lane though?

    Maybe not?

    Great maps aren't they?

    Does anyone have any phots of that curve on the map. That was a row of shops if my childhood memory is correct. It always looked good to me. Tatty but good. Then the bulldozers came in, circa 1965.

    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?
