    Default Olive Tree Street

    Hello

    Does anybody have an older street map that shows the location of Olive Tree Road, Wavertree?

    If so, can you tell me where it was located?

    My wife discovered that her Grandparents lived there in 1934.
    Neither of my copies of the AtoZ Liverpool (the oldest being Edition 3) have it indexed.

    Thanks

    Ed

    Hi Ed, According to my copy of Burrow's pointer guide map of Liverpool 1966.

    This is what your after, Olivetree road(all one word) I have marked it with a gray circle, near the top right.

    Hi drone_pilot

    Many thanks for your answer. It appears to be the only road missing in that area in my AtoZs. It will be interesting if you can find any remains.

    Thanks again

    Ed

    Olivetree Road is indexed in the following A-Z:
    Edition 2A (Part Revision) 1998. This Edition is in colour.

    I have the Edition 3 and Olivetree Road doesn't appear on the map nor in the street index. This black and white Edition is undated, but was published earlier than 2A.

    We really appreciate your efforts. The pictures are excellent. As you say it is still an impressive road. I guess in the 30s it was still quite new. It certainly looks a lot better than my old road in Dovecot.http://www.yoliverpool.com/forum/ima...lies/smile.gif


    My wife's grand-father not was exactly poor. He had managed and owned a number of cinemas in Liverpool through-out the 20's and 30's. He died sometime before 1938, as my wife never met him.

    Thanks for the info. Funny that it is missing from the B&W edition but re-appears in the later edition.

    I will probably have his name and details of what cinemas he had in my notes.
    If you want to keep it private, pm me.
