    Default UNSEEN AND UNPUBLISHED - L3 IN 1974 & 75

    These cranes are building the very part of the Central Library that is currently being demolished to the rear. My brother was working here at the time when what is known at Clayton Stack (as it's in Clayton St) and Picton Stack (the part of it directly attached to the Picton Library) was built. They were moved down to the library's book stores at Mercer Court off the Strand near to where the Queen Elizabeth Courts now stand.

    The first one is taken in March 1974

    The second one is taken in February 1975

    The next photo shows what was built back then having bitten the dust already. I posted this and another one or two some time back on the 'old buildings' thread.

    The older photos are looking North across the Churchill Way flyover showing Fontenoy Gardens, Byrom Street and the heights on Lace Street which are called Adlington and Bispham.

    They come down a lot quicker than they go up.

    Tis true Gnash. I didn't realise the demolition was going to be so large scale though.

    Ah! Sweet memories.
    The girl of my dreams lived in Fontenoy Gardens.
    Nope! She will remain nameless.

    Cheers Mart, my sentiments exactly and as you know the many emails I get asking me to forward copies of those unearthed gems to their parents and grandparents for pleasure and enjoyment make it all worthwhile as we can all go and photograph the now. Hats off to the LRO for archive all their records and making them available.


    ellergreen. That is so totally unfair. We want a name and we want it now

    The walkways over Byrom Street offered brilliant vantage points for watching lfc come home with the spoils during the 70s as Joe Neary's fantastic photographs of the time will testify. However, they were also our playground for us locals living a stones throw away in Gerard Crescent. They acted as places to hide during mass hide n' seek games that centred all around the area, sometimes continuing on for days on end. Also of course, the obligatory bike lanes, especially those long slopes and curly whirly spirals. A pain for what they were really meant for though, women trying to get from one side of Byrom Street to the other with small children and prams.

    Lol, correct Joe. That's on my 5th pic down. They may have been officially opened on 15th April 1972 but I can assure you they were in use well before that - possibly unofficially

    Great pictures. I had a couple of trips to Byrom street to see what the 'Poly' was like and I loved those curvy flyovers!

    What have you got when you have Kerry Katona up to her neck in concrete?

    Not enough concrete.

    Nice pics Ged, I remember the flyover being open around 1970, maybe it took 2 years for the concrete to go off?

    Tally man, ha, i'm not as old as you sir. I remember those games well and kick the can. Hiding behind the statues in St Johns gardens and in the sunken flowerbeds. They went on for hours and were sometimes carried over. The searches went right into town when you could walk through the precinct.
