    Default Notice the coal holes and old gassies.

    What's the going rate for houses in the Faulkner Street area? this could be the Harley Street of Liverpool.

    Such nice Georgian Terraced houses and always kept clean,I might be inteested in buying one? there seems to be a lot empty? why is this? thats if they are?

    There's such a lot to be photographed around this area

    Wouldn't have thought they'd be empty though, just people out at work maybe

    The coal holes are genuine - though I doubt if many still have coal delivered. Most are lived in, but not on a 24/7 basis. Huge rooms take a lot of heating, whatever fuel you're using, so best to borrow someone else's warmth during daytime hours. Curtains too can be very expensive to clothe those huge but lovely windows. Some residents are still saving up...

    BTW, Liverpool already has its Harley Street: it's called Rodney Street.

    The 'gassies' however are not old, but 'neo-gassies' - repro, like your neo-Georgian or mock-Georgian, and were only installed a few years ago; though they are an improvement on what came before them...

    They are the kitchen fans.Look at the doors,no locks or numbers.The entrance is to the rear.
    I have worked on a few conversions like that.

    Thanks... the "front door" did confuse me.

    I still see someone left stuff for them on the door step that isn't....

    Our local town Planning and Zoning department would really like the idea of everything being completely uniform on the street side...

    That'll be the yellow pages(Telephone Directory)that get delivered to every house...even if its empty.
