    Default Clayton Street, No.3 Court, 1930s.

    Here is another fascinating photograph of a Liverpool court which demands a storyline.The young man with his caged bird standing between two grim-faced women suggests impending eviction. Certainly, it was around the time that the street, which backed on to the Walker Art Gallery and the Museum, was demolished in the 1930s slum clearance programme [...]

    A brilliant picture Colin. As this was my old area and my parents and their parents before them, I have lots from this area from the LRO. It seemed to be widely recorded due to the impending and massive slum clearance programme as you say. Just one thing though, it's Gerard Gardens with one 'r' - not as in Steven Gerrard. Gerard Gardens/Crescent and Close took their names from Gerard Street which was demolished. That ran from Christian st down to Byrom St with many smaller streets running off it or nearby it. Circus Street ran parallel with it, named from the circus which stood at it's East end on Christian St which later became the Adelphi Theatre and at one time was also used as a gymnasium. Hunter st survived the clearance programme with the old friends meeting house moving over the road to accommodate the tenements and eventually the old brewery and Manchester slate company on its south side giving way to the Eastbound flyover in the late 60s.

    Agreed! I'm still pondering though on what led up to the event portrayed... An opportunity for someone to develop a creative writing Thread, perhaps, under Traditional Creativity
