    My husband visits someone in one of the ships roads, I will get him to take a photo next time he's down that way.

    I'm always passing these themed roads somewhere or other, as soon as we start getting more than 2 hours of daylight, i'll get snapping again.

    The ones off Wally Hall Avenue are Lusitania, Mauretania, Ivernia and Saxonia Roads but there are also Campania, Caronia and Lucania in Liverpool 19.

    Hello Ged, Lindy and Kev

    I first emigrated to the United States from the landing stage at Liverpool with my mother on January 21, 1955 to New York aboard the Cunard liner SS Saxonia. My mother's cousins, Harry Matchett and family, had a greengrocer's shop as well as a ship's supply business in Canning Place, and they filled our cabin with beautiful variegated carnations that remain a memory to me to this day. My father, Gordon B. George, had preceded us to Baltimore in the United States, and was waiting for us on a steely cold January 30 when the Saxonia docked in New York.

    All the best

    Chris

    Hi Chris, you,ve beaten me to it with your pic of the Saxonia. I had relatives who went on to Canada on board the Saxonia back in the 50s I think it was. Can,t just put my hand on the letter with all the relevant info.

    I've been to a pissup in one of the streets within the ships road. Got a mate who lives over there. I know which one it is (to get to) but have no idea of the name. Blame alcohol.

    Though her boyfriend ask for Ships Roads in Walton and as he was too busy ringing a few people in a taxi hadn't realised he was on his way to Woolton haha.
