    Default Review of 'In A City Living 3' in Daily Post 6 Jan.

    There will be a special feature in tomorrows (6 Jan) edition of The Daily Post, on Ged Fagan's In A City Living book. Part 3 of his inner city trilogy, it covers the tenements in areas such as Wavertree, Toxteth, Speke and Garston. Ged has also made a scale model of Gerard Gardens where he grew up.

    Thanks for the alert Paul, any excuse to get 'another' bad pic of me on the web - that should answer your question Kev. Thank you all for your support with the books, I haven't even seen the article myself yet, I was taxi-ing my girls from clubland at 5am then the Sky Engineer rang at 8am to say he'd be with me within the hour so I feel gozzonked - and all while the little mites sleep.

    Birley baths ey. Does he mean Burroughs baths (complete with cockroaches). There is a pic of the water rats, the local lads who in the early 1900s used to skinny dip in the canal at Burlington bridge which was warmed by the Tate & Lyle flushings. I lived off Burly from 93 to 98 after Burroughs (originally a wash-house) had made way for the Kingsway Wimpey 'apartments'.

    Hello little princess. Yes, it was situated in Burrough's Gardens which ran from Limekiln Lane by Eldon Grove to Bevington Hill. I've seen a pic of it knocking about on the web, i'll see if I can find it for him.

    That is also on the Reflections of Liverpool website Philip but they're walking to Clare st wash-house. I saw one somewhere of Burrough's baths frontage on the street itself but wracking my brain now.

    Ged.
    Did you know that Clare Street Wash-house and the Library were built on the site of the old Adelphi Theatre?

    Yes Philip, read that somewhere, possible the records office. Philip Christian was a potter who appearently built a house out of the remains of Gibson's folly that stood on a market site there. I read somewhere too that the Adelphi theatre was also known at one time as the circus theatre which gave rise to Circus street being built opposite which ran down to Byrom Street. Some great history in the area. I also have a pic of people standing outside No46 Christian st taken on 6th Oct 1926 to record the site of tthe old Adelphi theatre which was next door. It's in my book 2, will try to post it later.

    It's a bit grainy Philip. Note the pre B&Q ladder.

    Default 46 Christian Street & Adelphi Theatre.

    Thanks Ged.

    I've not seen that photo before.
    Is it from the Record Office?
    Have you any of the theatre at that date?

    A potted history of the Adelphi is 73 on the "Some Liverpool Cinemas" thread:

    Default Book signing and model

    Just to let anyone know who may be interested.

    I am at Editions, 16 Cook Street on friday (the Peter Ellis building) signing copies of my books, kindly set up by Ron Formby of the Scottie Press.

    I will also have my model there as the Echo are calling in to do a review.

    Updated pics of the model can be found on my 'Model views' page on
    www.inacityliving.piczo.com/

    You don't have to buy a book - honest, so if you're in town and want to pop in for a chat or a peek, please do so. I'll have some folders/photo albums of pics of Liverpool there too and the framed resident lists.

    Cheers,

    Ged.
