    Crocus.
    Everybody will be checking their A to Z's, or they might have a copy of "Streets of Liverpool" which covers street names very well.
    Of course, the main reason areas were grouped together under one theme was to help the postmen.

    My in-laws have lived in both Crocus and Harebell Street. There is also Daisy Street and Daisy street school had an underground baths. Woodbine street is where they smoke untipped ciggies Snowdrop is another and the early Mersey ferries had some of these names too.

    oh yes, the ferries have flower names too.

    I have heard of Daisy st baths but I didn't know it was underground.

    Another oddity of Daisy Street school (I don't know if this went on elsewhere) the protestants and the catholics were kept seperated at play time and had different dinner times and going home times yet a lot of the children were mates outside of school time so another instance where religion seperated people who would otherwise get on.

    Let's keep more coming, and make the threads something more than a list of names.

    When I was in the Merchant Navy I knew a gay steward called Jimmy Sanderson - though he was known to one and all as Gloria.
    He used to claim that he was born in Pansy Street but never knew if he was just winding us up. Quite a character.

    The Prince of Wales pub at the top of Pansy Street is known locally as 'The Pansy'. Some great detailing in the brickwork and around the windows.

    The 6 flower streets previously mentioned are all off the West side of Stanley road, however, there is just one on the East side called Primrose.

    Hi Ged, I went to Daisy St school every day but not as a pupil, but to play
    football in the playground between 4pm and 6pm It was supervised by teachers, Lads played football and the girls took dancing classes. I think they
    call it extra curriculum now. Anybody from any school could join in. This was in the 1940`s.

    Hi Ged,
    My husband's Auntie lives in Harebell st & we visited a few years ago, my first time to England.
    Your pic is great but I thought Harebell wasn't as level as it appears to be in the pic.

    Cheers

    Hiya Browniescorner.

    They are all quite steep as you'll know, leading down towards Commercial Road.

    Default Flower Streets

    Hi to all,
    I am new to this site, so I am looking forward to it.
    Regarding Daisy St. school, I went there and as far as I am aware it was split in two. Protestants in the top part nearer Stanley Rd and Catholics at bottom, further down the street.
    We had our own playgrounds and outside loos, we did go back after 4p.m. for activities.
