    Default Travers Street, 1930s.

    Another press photograph from the 1930s to illustrate Liverpool’s slum housing. The photograph was taken from the hind leg and unnamed street looking in the direction of Queen Anne Street (Gomer Street is the next street shown). The children in the foreground could be taken from any number of similar streets – with quite a [...]

    Great pic Colin. I have similar ones of these streets from the LRO Queen Anne Street clearance area files of the early 1930s. Of interest to me because the four square tenements were built on their site when these streets were abolished.
