    Default Torr Street, Everton (inc. Rock View)

    Dear all,


    ADVERTISING




    Whilst looking at the story of my Great Grandfather's sister I found that, shortly after she married in 1911, she lived on Torr Street in Everton. Now, confusingly, the particular address is given as '3 Rock View'.

    I knew that Rock View was one of the old tower blocks, but obviously that wasn't around in 1911, so I presume it's the name of one of the 'slum' terraces on Torr Street. Just quite a coincidence that it's the one they named the towerblock after!

    What I was wondering is whether anyone has any photos of 'old' Torr Street, before the tower block was constructed, perhaps showing some of the old housing...?

    Regards,

    Stephen

    Thanks for that - it covers the walk from her house to her brother's house.

    That's one huge hospital down by the Gordon St. end. When did that appear/disappear...?

    Thats John Bagots Hospital which was in the middle of the two steepest declining streets in Liverpool.
    The map is dated 1927 so therefore the Hospital would be around 1890's?

    Ah, yes. Those streets with the handrails on...?

    It's odd about that hospital. My Great Grandfather (who lived on Robsart St - right next to it) was rushed off to Mill Road Infirmary in 1921 shortly before he died (aged 31). Odd that he didn't go to this John Bagots one. Or was it not for the poor...?
