    We've got plenty of beautiful pics, now what about those areas/ buildings/ structures etc that are currently in a state of abandonment, dilapidation and dereliction?

    Shameful abandoned properties in lovely tree lined streets. This is Cairns street off Granby street.It's not just individual houses either but whole streets. Rows and Rows of houses that are closed down and have been for years.

    There's going to be lots to choose from.
    Some of these buildings will probably be demolished, so we might as well include buildings that have recently been demolished as well.

    This is Langdons, not the Scandinavian Hotel which people seem to think it was.
    It was built as a factory in about 1858, and remained a factory.
    The 1887 date is when Langdons took over the building.
    In the 1930s they built an extension at the back (on Duke Street), and it was there that the hotel was.

    That's going to be demolished, Kev.
    It used to be part of the Baths.

    This has been like this for possibly 50 years!

    Default Deelict library, Green Lane/Lister Drive.

    The trees and bushes have been allowed to grow, so it is difficult to see this library from the road.
    Perhaps to hide the shame that it's not the only Liverpool library which is closed in Capital of Culture Year?

    What a shame, this is a picture of the same building being worked on by my Grandad and his crew of carpenters in about 1903.

    Default St Mary's Rd Garston

    There are many derelict buildings along St Mary's Rd. This delightful building is but one of them.

    St Mary's Rd was once a busy thriving thoroughfare which boasted 14 butchers shops no less. These days it's a sad shadow of its former self. A classic example of urban decay caused by shifts in people's buying habits. In part the decline started with the building of the shopping parade in nearby Speke in the 1950s and the Speke people had no need to come to Garston to shop. This Speke shopping centre itself has now slipped into dereliction too.

    The flyover must have added to the decay?

    Yes I'm sure but this is likely to have been passing trade as opposed to regular business. Passing trade would have found it almost impossible to park in St Mary's rd prior to the bypass though.

    Default Speke Shopping Parade

    This was once a wonderful place. These photos taken in 2007. Not been back for a while. It may already all be gone.

    A new Morrisons supermarket and a few associated shops have been now built but there is nowhere near the range of shops that were once trading in Speke.

    Speke depresses me on Friday evening. I'm all for regeneration and the Morissons is great - providing you don't go of a Friday evening. The supermarket is full of mouthy kids, gangs, inside and out and adults who can't even shop in a large public place properly.

    Driving through Speke is the same unfortunately. I know there are plenty of lovely people who live in Speke but the gangs

    Speke should be bulldozed and either:

    1.The airport extended onto it

    2. Built a stadium there.

    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

    Hello taffy

    I know St. Mary's Road very well, having come down with my grandmother from Aigburth Hall Avenue, Mossley Hill, to claim her "divvies" from the Co-op circa 1963-1964 (she died in early 1965 about the same time as Sir Winston Churchill). It saddens me to see what Garston has become in the last fifty years.
