    Yeah, you're right Gnomie. It was a good around there in those days - 1970's 80's. I spent a lot of time around there with friends and their families who lived in Hope st, Faulkner st and other streets around there. I never went to the Casablanca club but I knew someone who was a regular.

    I remember the Chauffers.

    We used to go in the Crack in Rice st. The Caledonian and the Blackburn, and of course the Philharmonic pub. What was the name of the pub that was later called Peter Kavanaghs ? - originally it wasn't called that, it had another name. Was it the Grapes?? It's on Egerton st.

    Do you remember the grocers on the corner of Faulkner and Hope st ? (not sure what year it closed tho' - could have been in the 70's). My friend's family used to get the shopping there.
    There was a general shop around the corner on canning st. It's still there I think. We'd go there for the Echo, cigs, sweets and stuff.

    I used to go to art college in Hope place.

    Margaret Simey lived in a lovely old house on the side of Blackburn House(girls school).
    Wonder why that school ever closed ?? It was a good school in those days.

    Those huge houses are fabulous. What a shame that so many were demolished - I can just about remember those big 3 & 4 storey ones on Parliament st, Grove st, and around about. There are a few surviving thank God ! Imagine how fantastic it would have been if all those grand buildings had been renovated.

    Unity Theatre, 1 Hope Place

    The Unity name is one of the last reminders of a national theatre movement that once played an important role in the theatrical and political life of the country. The Unity Theatre movement included 250 groups before the war, loosely linked in the Left Book Club Theatre Guild.

    Everyman Bistro, 5-9 Hope Street

    The Everyman Bistro was founded 35 years ago by Paddy Byrne and Dave Scott – later to be joined by Tim Byrne our 3rd partner. In the basement of the old ‘Hope Hall’ with little more than a domestic cooker and a trestle table or two Paddy and Dave turned out food that had never been seen in Liverpool (or anywhere else) before at that time.

    Liverpool Everyman, 13 Hope Street



    Founded in 1964 in the appropriately named Hope Hall (once a chapel, then a cinema), in an area of Liverpool noted for its bohemian environment and political edge, the Everyman quickly built a reputation for ground-breaking work. A succession of visionary directors, exciting writers, and bold young acting companies kept the theatrical flame alive for decades, and the Everyman was the crucible for an astonishing range of theatrical talent. Julie Walters, Bernard Hill, Antony Sher, Bill Nighy, Alan Bleasdale, Willy Russell, Barbara D!ckson, Matthew Kelly, Cathy Tyson, David Morrissey, several McGanns and the Liverpool Poets all considered the Everyman a formative home in their early years. The intimacy of the Everyman’s thrust space has wrapped itself around the reinterpretation of classics that characterised the sixties; the political drama and theatrical mischief that followed in the early seventies; the rich vein of new writing which bridged the transition to the eighties, and the ambitious theatricality which carried it into the nineties.

    Since January 2004, the Everyman has been a producing theatre once again, and the cornerstone of its programme is the living writer. Whether it is the debut of a new Liverpool playwright, a new version of a world classic, or the British première of a major international play, the warmth and dynamism of the Everyman space embraces each of the stories that traverse its stage.

    Philharmonic Hall, Hope Street

    Opened on 27th August 1849, Philharmonic Hall has long been an acclaimed and integral part of the artistic life of Liverpool, and was described as ‘the best in Europe’ by Sir Thomas Beecham before being destroyed by fire in 1933. The present hall, designed by architect Herbert Rowse and opened in 1939, quickly established itself as both a concert hall and cinema. The art deco splendour of Philharmonic Hall was restored in 1995 following a £10.3 million refurbishment; parts of the foyer are said to be based on decoration in the tomb of Tutankhamen.

    On the back wall of the stage, complementing the auditorium’s wall reliefs of muses, a fascinating piece of gently undulating kinetic art, ADAGIO, represents the convergence of the River Mersey with the human face.

    Dave Bateman's poem following is the title poem in an anthology in which some of my poems about Liverpool and other topics are included. The anthology, Living On Hope Street, edited by local poet and performer Jim Bennett, is expected out before Christmas. Next May, we will have a couple of readings in connection with the anthology at the Everyman (under the auspices of the Dead Good Poets) and at the Albert Dock for which I am looking forward to coming over from the United States to appear.

    Living On Hope Street

    I’ve been living on Hope Street now
    for more years than I can remember,
    but that’s partly because I was drunk.
    Let’s call it several years or so, rolling
    between my end of this not-so-mean street
    and the Everyman Bistro at the other,
    passing always The Famous Luggage,
    port out starboard home, the stacked-up
    sculpted and mysterious suitcases of local heroes
    with a view of the river and when you count them
    they never add up to the same number twice
    even though there is a numbered key
    just a few drunken steps away,
    and the seagulls arc overhead like ghosts of hangovers,
    and whenever I try to add up all the drinks
    I have drunk on Hope Street – at the Ev, the Belv,
    the Casa, the Crack and even the Phil, it always
    comes to more than the number I first thought of,
    but dauntless and blithely I travel to and fro
    along this very nearly straight road,
    for say what you like about Hope Street,
    it runs pleasantly from south to north
    or the opposite if you prefer, and
    with one cathedral at each end
    it’s certainly pretty hard to get lost on.

    Default Hope Street Area

    I posted a photograph of 'Ye cracke' in Rice Street a few days back. This is a part of Liverpool that I love - the area around Hope Street, The Philharmonic Hall and the cathedrals.

    I've got a few more photos that i may post, but I was quite pleased with this one - PILGRIM STREET.



    I once read that 'wherever you go in the Liverpool 8 area, the Anglican Cathedral is looking down on you'. It's true, and it can feel quite eerie.

    I'm not much of a photographer, and there are plenty who could do a much better job, but I was quite pleased with this one and I think the black and white suits the image.

    Here's another one. I love this piece of art.

    Can someone let me know what the name of this is, I just can't think at the moment and can't seem to find anything about it on the 'net.

    I was born and brought up in Liverpool 8. I, and all the others were oblivious to it. We never gave it a second glance.
