    Smile Scottie Road Area

    Anyone got any memories from Scottie Rd from the late seventies right through to the millenium?? I`m a scouser, aged 39, called Terry, from the area, moved to Oxford 4 years ago, and just found this site last week. Very interesting story of how I managed to land in Oxford, but thats probably not for this thread.......

    Gilly, did you once mention the Radcliffe Estate?

    From Freddy O'Connor's 'It all came tumbling down'

    Some say, not before time for that estate though. How was it for you there, only a year wasn't it?

    Interestingly a similarly designed estate still stands in Aigburth Vale and is in good condition.

    Just showed me dad that pic of the Raddy and he reckons those particular blocks were on the edge of the estate at the Everton Road end, and the houses that made up the bulk of the estate were slighty different in design and a bit smaller. He's not 100% on that though.

    There was a similar estate off Breck Road that lasted quite a bit longer than the raddy, and one in Croxteth just off the east lancs, which is still standing but waiting to be demolished.

    Hey, that's weird that is, if you didn't know it, it gives the impression of not being straight. I know it's a panoramic shot, just looks like it goes round the bend, like me

    Gilly,
    I bet loads of Away supporters have memories of the bottom end of Scottie in the early 70s when they walked back to Limey, especially that hill This is no reflection on the Scottie community, as all the Red and Blue troublemakers came from the outlying housing estates.

    Here's a few Snaps from my Slideshow I made in 2005.
    Over 650 photos on 1 DVD for a Tenner..Complete with Dvd Sleeve..price includes UK postage.. Region Free..will play worldwide..
    All my own Photos and over 60 Joe Devine classics (which I paid him for the priveledge to use)

    Not a bad price considering 1 photo ordered from the Local Liverpool newspaper will cost you 8..

    (eg..Photos taken Inside T Brown the Jeweller's on London Rd in the last few days before it Closed down..They will cost 8 for 1 photo..I was the only person Invited into T Browns in the last week on 3 seperate days including the Last Day Closing down Party..all the Photos I took of the last week in T Brown will also be available soon on a Dvd Slideshow..price....10...Bargain )


    Im not making claims that this is anything special..Im made up with it though and more Importantly as far as Im concerned is that the the Ex residents of Gerard Gardens and people in the St Josephs/Holy Cross area's are Delighted with it..and that will do fer me mate !!



    Gerard Gardens area today..Pontack Pub white building left centre.
    This is the opening slideshow Screen..click on what one you want to watch and your away !!





    Over 60 of these vintage cassics showing Gerard Gardens and Gerard Crescent being demolished in 1986.







    Looking along Christian St past the Pontack toward the Rose Hill/Bishop Goss area.




    The same area today.





    Looking up Islington with SFX in the distance.














    The Crescent area.



    From Christian St.





    A rare ariel photo showing Scotland Road and the Comus St/Bishop Goss area..

    St Joey's School.








    Chaucer St on the right.





    Looking down Chaucer St.





    From Juvenal St looking toward what used to be the Denbigh Castle and Kitty Carters sweet shop.











    Looking up Gt Crosshall St.





    The Holy Cross area.




    Dangsters on Vauxhall Rd.






    Standish Street blocked of due to the new build on the site where Holy Cross Church stood.

    Thanks Mandy..glad you like them.


    I will be the 1st to admit though that they are not the best Quality photos..
    I had only just got my 1st Computer and never had a clue what I was doing to be honest,,not a single lesson..just harrishing my Lad "How do I do this".."How do I do that"..I genuinely tried to make it to the best quality that I could..
    Its only the last few months to be Honest that I've been on here that I've learnt about proper photography and techniques..
    And that is all down to Scouser Dave...Thank you Dave.

    Anyway..thats why Im only charging a tenner for it..and its well worth it !!

    A couple of my old pics taken around Cazneau St.

    Gerard mate, can you date the pub pic? Just thinking the "For Sale" sign may give a clue. I think it may have been taken about 10 years ago.

    I'd say that photo was taken about 6/8 years ago at the most Dave..
    I can remember though the for sale sign was up for years so it could have been a bit longer.
    My Brother's mate's Mum had that Pub and it was affectionately known as Ginnie Melody's..
    They have been best mates since they were about 3 weeks old and Rrrr kid now works for K.C who has his own building firm.
    I've had a few good sessions in there I can tell yer mate..Lol.
