    Come on. What do you have to say about housing mistakes? (by implication, you could even throw in a little bit about how it might be better).
    I never run away. I've said on other threads that the whole Everton slum clearance idea was a mistake. There were many properties that could have been saved and renovated. "The Lost Tribes of Everton" authored by Ken Rogers, gives a perspective on it. Many of the demolished property's bricks were reused, but few by LCC.
    I stayed on till 1968. By that time the area was a wasteland, but friends were still returning to the area they'd grew up in with tales of the soulless estates they now lived in. Hence my tiring references to learning from past mistakes.
    You may have lived in a house similar to the Radcliffe's, it sounds much like the VW advertisement

    ....
    Was that really true fort the Liverpool blocks?

    The only one I drove by regularly is now "gentrified" but I believe was an original 60's block.

    It is the one near the North end of Seffie Park. A google map view does not seem to show any specific park area arounf it - Sefton Park was there before it...

    I don't remember much parkland around the tower blocks...

    Stop lionizing Peel. They bring no manna from heaven.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
