    Default Lowther Street? 1975

    In 1975, Paul Trevor came to Liverpool as a member of the Exit Photography Group who were documenting the state of Britain’s inner cities.

    It is Lowther street,Colin.

    If you google street view,you will seethe same house on the right is still standing at the end of lowther street,the left was all demolished and new buildings thrown up.

    although there is no doorway on your pic of the house to the right,streetview shows one but having had a look at the doorway it looks as though it was put in after that pic of yours,but the windows are the same layout.

    I'm not sure this is Lowther Street. If it was, the street leading away from us in the background would let us see the large houses on Bedford Street South, which it doesn't.

    I used to walk this way to school all the time during the 70's and 80's and where the garages are at the end of the street on the left, you should see the rear Falkner Terrace, as in the snap below. You can see down Lowther Street on the left.
