Fontenoy Gardens, 1965
I am guessing that the year is 1965. The John Moores Centre (top left) appears to have been finished, with a nearby crane working on Phase 2. The pub on the corner of Fontenoy Street and Great Crosshall Street (the road running up from Byrom Street the left), is the Australian Vaults with Holy Cross [...]
Another brill photo Colin, taken from Byrom st polytech roof. You'll notice Gt Crosshall street is two way and the date is about right as that's when they were building phase 2 up off Tithebarn st as i've another photo of it around this time and also the old property on Fontenoy st is still visible, demolished later in the year for the building of Bispham and Adlington heights. A blast from the past is the old yellow and grey cxorpy bin wagon. The Australian Vaults where my brother drank was known locally as Ma Moores. The other flats in the background on Standish Street were known as the coffin blocks due to their shape.
