    Default UNSEEN AND UNPUBLISHED - PARADISE GARDENS - 1ST FEB 1966

    Possibly the most inappropriately named housing i've ever come across given the living conditions. Paradise Gardens off Pinnington's Cottages which themselves were off Wavertree High Street were photographed here to highlight the penetrative and rising damp which was prevalent throughout the scullery.

    Don't forget to use the scrollbar at the bottom of the post to see the full picture.

    You give folk running water and they are still not satisfied, even when it runs down a wall in every room.

    For the date, see the title of the thread Stevie

    Funnily enough, I got Rumney Road out on the same day as these, what No. house?

    I also asked for what was known as the 'Cochrane Street slum clearance programme' folder - they said are you sure.

    Now I know why. 221 pics of everything that stood on both sides of Heyworth Street and all the streets off it such as Jasmine, Amos, Desmond etc. I also got Store st, Melrose Road and others in that area.

    I already had what previously stood on the now derelict Easby Estate - the 60s houses on Harcourt street and Lambeth Walk etc.

    Yes, great to look back on. I have others of this area including a street called Pinningtons Cottages, i'll get around to uploading them eventually. The site will go past 10,000 pics. I might look at starting another with pages either alphabetically or by postcode.

    Cheers George. I've had hundreds if not thousands of responses including people who return to it time and time again and not a peep about it being slow though. I just logged onto it and it opened up sharpish, same at home. Is it a Spectrum Sinclair computer he's got?

    1966 then!? I'm not sure exactly which no' house it was,but ours was no'28,which was central,directly opposite the Kirkdale homes,and the house in question,was towards Westminster rd! The area is unrecognisable,bar for the "Medlock" pub,as both Medlock st.,and Leven st. have both gone!
    Thing is,there are houses of a similar age in the area,which are still in fine condition,down towards the "Rec",(park) which was the site of Kirkdale jail!

    I don't know why but only the last image with the cast iron firegrate shows up for me... and that's often the way for me with the images you post from ImageShack.us

    It could be the rest are still catching up Chris. Give it a few seconds then scroll back up to where the top pic should be. It's the same on any forum where a number of pics on the one posting are uploaded.

    Don't forget the pictures are larger than first appear so use the scroll bar.

    In the Jusoda pic, there is a very primitive looking clock.

    In the range picture, there is a built in cupboard. We had one of those in the living room (which everyone back then called the kitchen) of our tennies.

    All I get is a red "X" except for the last photograph as noted. Maybe it's a problem with the browser I use...

    Its to do with your browser,Chris.

    Something is not functioning right? a red X in a white box is it?

    What browser you using?
