    I stumbled on it about ten years ago on a crawl into town after a match, thought it was a great boozer. Only saw it last week boarded up, sad to see.

    FORMER labourers’ homes almost 100 years old could be converted to flats.

    Eldon Grove labourers dwellings in Vauxhall’s Eldonian Village have lain derelict for years.

    But they are now being marketed by Liverpool property firm Edward Symmons with planning permission for 48 flats and 50 car parking spaces.

    They are owned by the city council and, despite being in the hands of a developer who cannot be named due to confidentiality reasons, Edward Symmons has been named as Law of Property Act (LVA) Receiver with instructions to sell the historic site that was given grade II-listed status in 1993.

    To the front of the block is the former Bevington Street Recreation Ground which could provide scope for further development, subject to the necessary planning consents.

    The last planning permission granted according to the Scottie press website was for houses in a similar style to be built on the former recreation ground which fronts these historic flats. It's a pity the developer seems to have struggled for funds.

    I picked up a link from this thread which took me to Geds inacityliving,when I got on there I clicked People and Places and entered a world that was almost Joycean. Ged has assembled an album of photographs that show people of all different sorts,the young and the old ,the carefree and the careworn,the drunk and the sober. Such a collection ;it is as good as anything I have ever seen. One face stood out above all the rest,Sandy Bromilow,he was a man who could be found down at the Pier Head on most days. There used to be a kind of speakers corner there,religious and political zealouts would come and spout their version of the truth and the passersby would stay, or go, depending on the quality of the speaker. One very left wing speaker would set up his stand and put Sandy on it ,purely as a warm up man. Sandy had cerebral palsy and his speech was difficult to understand,and when he stood on that podium he would rant away ,shouting god knows what but he never failed to pull a crowd. As soon as the audience reached a goodly size .old Stalin would move Sandy off and then get started on an even more incomprehensible rant than Sandys.
    I know this is the wrong thread,but I too drink at the Eldonian when in Liverpool,thread connection right!!

    Well, for a start u are in full control of webpage content, no pop up ads plus I think its a bout time u earned some cash from the site as it is very popular.

    When people click on the ads on the piczo, the money goes to them not u.

    It depends also how u want your 'visitors' to find you. When people 'talk' and your website spreads via word of mouth then they need to be able to give the web address as simply as possible.

    http://www.inacityliving.com/

    But then its upto u to maintain it, not piczo.

    So there would be pluses and a couple of negatives.

    Drove past Eldon Grove last week, and took a few pics:

















    Was just playing with my new camera really. Seems nothing has changed, apart from some new fencing and a security guard.

    Spoke to a guy at Edward Symmons to-day who said the flats had been sold about a year ago but would not tell me who is the new owner. All the lead has gone and it looks like it will be back to the beginning. It was a pity as I believe the showflat was nice. The top floor flats had a bedroom in the eaves but a lot of the skylights have also gone so I imagine there is a lot of water damage. If anyone has any info on the new owners post it up, please.

    I came across this company on the internet called http://www.claimsliverpool.org.uk/. They are based in Liverpool and specialise in helping people claim money back they may be entitled to. They helped me claim a considerable amount of money back and did not charge me a penny for their services. Give them a try http://www.claimsliverpool.org.uk/

    Me too. Go to www.imageshack.com and click on browse. Click the pic you want and when it appears in the box, click 'upload now' then copy and paste the gobbledegook in the 4th line down 'forum code' into your message here that should do it.

    We went over to pick my husband Tommy's Mum up from Raymond Place, off Limekiln Lane to-day as we do most Sundays, and take her to ours "over the water".
    On our way we drove up Trueman Street and took a look at no1, the merchants house.
    Then later we took her back home and decided to have a trip down memory lane before we went home.

    We drove past the flats on Eldon Grove, and what a shock to see those beautiful flats in such a state, its a crying shame to let them deteriorate so badly, how can the powers that be let this happen.

    Onto Grosvenor Street to see what was left of St Joseph's Church, (where we married) and the school next door, that Tommy went to as boy, the memories came flooding back for him.

    Around that area Comus St, Christian St, and Rose Place his old stamping ground, we even looked for the first pub he drank in the Pontac, but that no longer exists.

    Anyway it was good to have a look around and we took our memories home with us.

    The place is wide open most of the time. I can only assume that whoever owns it is living in hope that the whole lot will finally be torched, thus releasing the land for development. At the moment its listed building status appears to be an impediment... So much for the Stop The Rot campaign!
