    Default 1950s flats and maisonettes.

    Boundary Street, now new housing. Just the other side of the bridge is now the big tai pan chinese restaurant. This area was desolate for quite some time.

    I remember you saying your back wall was Everton library. You should have made the council pay your lecky bill.

    These flats fronted onto Leeds street and backed onto Worfield Street. Vauxhall Gardens stood behind them.

    I'm not sure I know the subtle differences between 50s/60s designs...some had round windows, landings, raillings and some didn't. Here's a couple that have since been demolished.

    Essex Street Jan. 2005


    Lamport Street (rear) Sept. 2004...you can see where the raillings have been bricked-up.

    That's great that Mike, I'LL deffo get along to that exhibition. I've just posted a film screening and model exhibition at Lee Jones on the Festival and Events thread this thursday if you want to go along. Myrtle Gardens gets a good slot during it, great model that. Those with the orange arrow are the balconies aren't they and yes, that's the central stairway with your green arrow.

    Mike, it seems to be the in thing at the moment these models. I see the Liverpool model in the library has been extended then there's the model of what the metopolitan cathedral was going to look like in the Walker and my friend Mike Murphy who supplied many of the photos on my site made one years ago of Tate and Lyles which he still has, now yours too.

    The Lee Jones screening is based at their headquarters in Limekiln Lane, just off Silvester Street which in turn is just off Scotland Road, near to St. Anthony's church. It starts at 2pm - it's free but you need to book the tickets by ringing Lesley or Joan on 207 1984.

    The film lasts one and a half hours, there's usually people there who bring their own pics to show around and Lee Jones will have their own on show. Ron Fromby of the Scottie press www.scottiepress.org will be present (they're based around the corner and set this up really) and there's always a lively debate at the Q&A session afterwards.

    Hope you and your dad and whoever else can make it.

    The corner of Burrough's Gardens and Limekiln lane.

    The flats built in the early 1950s and demolished in 1992.

    The private Wimpey flats, Kingsway Court which replaced them in 1993.

    Default A mixture of housing.

    St. Martins cottages, the first municipal housing in Europe feature here on Silvester Street (1869-1977) next door is Archbishop Whiteside School with the church at the top of the picture.

    To the far right, the next housing on the picture to be built in that area following the slum clearance programme were Portland Gardens in the 1930s (Burlington st tenements which stood opposite them were built a decade earlier but are not on the pic)

    The lower, three storey standard units and the maisonettes of Ashfield st, Silvester st and St. Augustine street came next in the early 1950s followed closely by Blenheim and Tatlock towers (Blenheim shown here)

    Yes, it's a cr@ppy pic but you can only go with the technology of the time i'm afraid. It's best if you click the pic bottom right and enlarge it a bit.
