    Hello Kev

    Looks pretty crumby too me since it doesn't accord with the orginal look of the building. I think it should be restored to look the way it did originally.

    Until recently there were plans [I thought they were a certainty] to fully restore the gardens as part of the regeneration of the site. Unfortunately residents near by took it upon themselves to object for some strange reason Very selfish I thought.

    Default Speke & Garston Gangs in the 1950s

    Driving through Speke is the same unfortunately. I know there are plenty of lovely people who live in Speke but the gangs
    Apparently in the 1950s, it was common for the "Teddy Boy" gangs from Speke to go to Garston for a punch up with the Garston Teddy Boys. Same was true for those from the Dingle who also used to come to Garston for a punch up with the Garston "Teddy Boys". Nothing's new it seems.

    Yes Taffy, even in the 80's there were Speke Heads and Garston Heads. Garstonians would never venture into Speke and vice versa I assume. Graffiti would pop up on occasion, when a cheeky Speke 'ead would write '[name] from Speke was here' on a Garston building! Oh, shock horror! How very dare they!

    Is that supposed to be the head of a bull - perhaps it was a butchers or a pub called the .... Head?

    I'll check some older directories next time I'm in the library.
    It's a wonderful survivor.

    What is happening to those? Private company buying them out? If so, the sooner the better. They were always immaculate.

    True, and built in 1958, an early example of a tower block.

    agree with Marky, it is Scholar St. My gt grandma remarried in St Dunstan's. The street she lived in back then , Corney St, has long been replaced by modern housing. where that green is at the end of the street there was a school, if my memory serves me .

    when i went to liverpool for a visit last year, driving from the airport , i was staying at holiday inn lime st. i think it was london rd we passed , i was surprised that alot of buildings looked Derelict . and then i was on a tour of where ringo starr used to live .. and a lot of houses there were empty .. i was suprised becoz although old , if they were fixed up, they are prob still good houses,. i heard these were rough areas ... but how rough can somewhere be with no people around ? i thought it was a waste .... old houses are always built better than new one, i heard in the ringos house area , they were going to knock everthing down to build new houses ... thought it was a shame as part of what i liked about liverpool was all the old buildings etc ...
