    They're not old pictures.
    They're actually quite new.

    The owner of the website link I have posted claims that the buildings in the pictures are old, they certainly look old. I have not gone through every image that is on the weblink, but, alot of the pictures look old to me, but hey! depends upon your definition of old doesnt it?

    Photos of old buildings taken recently are not "Old Pictures".
    A lot of people will expect to see old pictures if the name of the thread is "Old Pictures".
    Having said all that, the site is a commercial one and should be classed as Spam.

    How can that be when the site clearly states that the photographs are free for none commercial use? I personally have no connection with the website in question.

    each to their own!
    technically they are photographs of old buildings (with some new) I wouldnt call it spam because it is still the Liverpool theme.

    In the mid-70s, I was living in Hartington Road when they demolished the church in the 'Ullet Road' picture above. The workies were smashing up everything in sight including the memorial stones so I 'rescued' one, a handsome marble memorial to John Lea, a former mayor of Liverpool. I used it as a coffee table for a while, it travelled with the rest of my gear to London and back- twice- and now lives in my back yard in Chester- possibly the most travelled memorial stone ever?
    There's a block of flats on the site now, corner of Brompton Avenue.

    Here it is:

    We used to take all that for granted until it is gone and then there is a big void. I lived on the corner of Croxteth Rd and Hartington Rd. I left Liverpool, came back and the church was gone.

    When I lived around there, apart for the cars on the roads, it could have been the 1870s. Everything was still the same.

    I lived in Brompton Avenue in the late 70s, and could see it from the back of the house (beautiful sandstone walls in all the back gardens in that area).
    I actually sat in the park and watched it being demolished.
    And never took any photos!

    Why was it demolished? Not sound?

    Just 'redundant', I suppose.
    It had been empty for years, so probably had interesting 'visitors'.

    There is a Joseph Mayer Collection (no relation to me), but I thought it was mainly silver.

    Hi DaisyChains,

    Yes, lots. I learned my stuff when living on the dole at 100 Hartington Rd. Did some courses at Open Eye- when it was in the old pub at the end of Whitechapel- and used to wander the streets with my trusty Pentax K-1000 snapping away at everything. So have hundreds of B/W negs of this area, mostly 70s/80s.
    Darkroom sadly defunct now due to space demands of growing teenagers and rise of digital but intend to start scanning the archive when a suitable- cheap- scanner turns up. Anyone got a spare one that also does 120 negs?
    Also hundreds of city centre/river etc etc. Will start posting here when scanner sorted and I get my head around how to do it.
    Meanwhile, see galleries below...

    Go to ASDA.
    They can put your negatives onto a CD, and it'll be just like from a memory card - postives, etc.
    And they'll probably get all 120 onto one CD, all for 97p!
    I couldn't believe how cheap it was.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Would absolutely love to see the hartington rd/smithdown area pics.
    Have a look at what Phil's said about ASDA! Brilliant stuff!

    ASDA? Amazing. But do you have to leave your negs with them to have it done? I'd be very nervous of that, also having then scratched etc..
    I've got hundreds of the ruddy things so may get expensive. Would probably prefer to spend it on a scanner of my own and have total control.
    I went on their website and saw details of putting digital images on CD but not scanning negs/slides. I'll give our local one a ring tomorrow to check it out.

    I will try to put some images up of the hartington Rd etc area as soon as poss though, so stay tuned! If you're in the Chester area anytime, you're welcome to mooch through the files...

    great photos. The LRO is an excellent place for old photos. I took my camera with me when doing some family tree research and took these.

    Crosfield Rd , Edge Hill. My paternal gtgt grandparents had lived in the street from 1891.



    Downe St, Liverpool 3 I think it was. Maternal gtgt grandparents lived here in 1881. everytime I look at these I hear the Hovis tune .

    quincyg, i'm from the tenement block that was built on Downe St (the other street on that pic is Holly Street, you can just see the word Holly on the gaslamp), my family were living at 39 Holly Street when I was born.

    I'll add the Crosfield Rd ones to the LRO page on my site if that's ok please, Mandy, likewise i'll add Webster Road if that's ok please? Should be able to build up a good collection for people to look at.
