    Default It Was 20 Years Ago....

    2007 marks the 20th anniversary since the demolition of Gerard Gardens. To mark the event, and help promote Gardens Of Stone: The story of City Centre Living in Liverpool during the 20th century, I have created a Pepperesque poster. This includes many residents of the tennement blocks, as well as a number of 'stars' who appeared in films shot on location in Gerard Gardens. Thanks go to Paul Birchall (standing in the George Harrison position, for the loan of the Pepper costumes).


    ADVERTISING




    Quick quiz, can you name any of the 'stars' in the poster?

    A further free screening is planned at the Lee Jones League of Welldoers Centre in Vauxhall next month. I will post the full details when confirmed.

    I have added a further page to my website if it's of any interest. http://pic7.piczo.com/inacityliving/?g=28512368
    It's about forthcoming events and features the pepper mock-up.

    I have animated the Pepperesque poster to be used to support the introduction of the 2007 screenings of Gardens of Stone.

    A link to the Youtube file is attached;

    Keep an eye on Yo for future screening dates.
