    What do people think of Dale Street?

    It has some of the best Victorian architecture in the UK but personally I think it is a moribund street.

    Would it benefit from a revamp? Trees perhaps?

    The lower end by Hatton garden has the magnificent Municipal Buildings but over the road are boarded up terraces and the tatty row by Jamaica House.

    Further up the road the old Insurance building lies empty and would look great done up.

    I also would love to see State House demolished and that corner with North john Street redeveloped.

    Need to sort out the bits you mentioned. Think having trees would cut out the view of the town hall if looking towards it.

    Vernon Arms needs to be sorted out as well, as the owners who closed it have done bugger all with it (think they got refused permission to do whatever with it)

    I love the history of Dale Street, one of Liverpool's original seven streets

    I'm just pleased to see someone apart from me use the word Moribund.
    I get horripilation when I see the language abused.

    I have memories of Parades along Dale Street from the Town Hall to Lime Street and St Georges Plateau.
    The pavements of Dale Street were thronged with people, balconies of the buildings full of bunting and "ticker tape" style paper being thrown down on us. We also had 'scallies' them days, with bags of flower being thrown down on us. It was all taken in good fun though.
    It must have been sometime around VE day because I remember Army tanks, Barrage ballons, along with men from all three services lined up on outside St Georges Hall.
    Am I alone with these memories or was anyone else there who remembers ??

    In the days when we had nothing we had fun.
    If tomorrow starts without me, remember I was here.
