    Default Any pics of Wavertree road?

    Does anyone have any pics of the Wavertree road area...From the top end by Overton street down towards Botanic road?

    I was brought up there in the 60's...
    Cheers

    Certainly do...My Mum and Dad bought me a bike from Freemans for passing my 11 plus.

    Also Sturlas, Crawfords, and Woolies at the top next to Freemans.

    Are you from around there?

    No I'm from Anfield but I had an aunty who lived in Winifred st off Wavertree rd. My mum or nan would take me visiting and we would have a look in the shops there. My mum used to get lots of stuff from Freemans, it was a good shop. They sold everything, shoes, clothes, perfumes, etc. They even sold records, I remember buying chart hits there.
    Kays the dress shop was there for years, my mum always used to look in there.

    I have a few from the top end of Wavertree Road and also the Botanic Pub...


    Wavertree Road, Edge Hill Now sadly fallen into dis-repair.


    Wavertree Road/Martensen Street I took this for the ornate brickwork really, its something that you don't normally see in buildings today!


    Wavertree Road The section of Wavertree Road between Overton Street and Nelson Road is generally marked by the Tasker's DIY Superstore. A somewhat dark and grotty building in my view. You would have thought that a DIY shop would at least look pleasant from the outside!


    Wavertree Road Looking up to Overton Street and Marmaduke Street, the Royal Arms pub now looks run down and may be possibly closed down; any locals know if this is true??


    Wavertree Road Most of the right hand side of Wavertree Road has been landscaped, a familiar story with several routes leading into the City Centre.


    Wavertree Road/Winifred Street I thought this scene pretty much summed up the whole area; sadly, it has lost its local community which has led to its slow downfall.


    Wavertree Road/Janet Street At least the chippy is still going!


    Dorothy Street Just to finish, even derelict properties look appealing in the sunlight!

    EDIT:
    Specially for Lindylou...


    Winifred Street Looking up toward Gladstone Road.

    A nice set Wallasey, thanks for posting them. The ordinary streets and shops deserve some more coverage.
