    Question Missing Street Dept.- Everton's ROSE VALE

    Hi ok, I know it's actually still there :smirk , but I am wondering where the middle of it has gone?!
    Part of it is off Great Homer St and the other half off Netherfield Rd. So I am wondering why the part off Great Homer was given the same name, if perchance they were never joined initially... I had kin at No. 85, which end would that land on? Thanks in advance! Pooiver

    Rose Vale ran from Great Homer St up to Netherfield rd! The top half was completely destroyed by german bombers during the 2nd world war.

    A photo of the damage. Rose Vale is on the right hand side in the distance!

    Hello poolofliver. Plenty of Rose Vale pics on my site below. Check out both the pre war and post war pages.

    As Samp correctly states, it did run as one long street but is now fractured in the middle.

    Samp & Ged,
    How distressing that must have been! And to have a reminder for so long. Having been lucky to not have experienced that kind of destruction in Canada, it never occured to me that German Bombers would be the cause for the halving of a street! It just is mind boggling...
    Ged I promise to get to your site!!

    Thanks Poolofliver.

    Samp is old enough to have seen this first hand. Me, i'm a 70s baby.
