    Thumbs up 21 Holly Street, Liverpool.

    Does anyone have any info on Liverpool in 1914? Specifically 21 Holly Street, Liverpool. The reason I ask is that it is the address on my late Grandparents; marriage certificate. Their names are Charles Young and Emily Wheeler. Even if no one has any info on them, at least I would know what kind of accommodation they were in. My Grandfather Charles Young had just enlisted in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and I think they got married just in case he didn't come back from the war, and so my grandmother would have a pension for her and their children. Was Holly Street an army barracks, does anyone know. I'd love to find out and would be so grateful if someone could help. Hope I'm not flouting any rules by asking these questions. Look forward to hearing from anyone with any info.

    I lived at 39 Holly st from 1962 - 68 in flats similar to Eldon Grove which are still standing. They were built in 1912 but only went from 33 - 79 Holly st which was from Christian street up to St. Anne St.

    I suspect your relatives will have lived in the row of 10 white cottages that were on Holly street on the other side of Christian street running westwards. The Liverpool records office definitely have a picture of these cottages and I know I have a pic of them in the distance somewhere which i'll try to dig out.

    Holly Street was in the area of the Street heading upwards which is now St Josephs Crescent.St Anne Street Police station is the grey building to the Left..This photo and Hundreds more are part of a Slideshow I made because I grew up in this area and wanted to make something showing the Gerard Gardens area where I grew up..





    The White building right Centre Picture was the Pontack Pub where I lived for years before moving over the Road to Gerard Gardens after getting married.

    That last picture by the way was from the L.R.O. so thank you to them. Taken by Harry Ainscough, an Ormskirk born, Sheffield living chap who photographed a lot of Liverpool in the 1960s, thank God.
