    Default Speke prefabs

    Hi robione,
    Wonderful pictures bringing back lovely memories of the prefabs and their surroundings. The whole atmosphere of those roads are evident in your photos. Pity there are non of Sandgate road! My mum and dad still live in Speke and everytime I pass that stretch of land where the prefabs where
    I try to gauge where the roads and prefabs were. It is difficult as there are no landmarks to go by apart from the back of the houses on School way which backed onto the prefabs. Do you think they left the foundations of the prefabs intact when they demolished them. If so they might give a clue
    as to the layout of the roads.

    Could this be the Flo Larkin that used to live in Speke Rd Gardens, and had a brother named Desmond?? The Darnells also lived in the 'Tennies' (if this is the same family! Nice to hear those well remembered names once again!

    Cheers!

    I lived at 4 Appledore Road 1953-1963. Our neighbours were the Genges (2),
    number 6 burned down late 50's early 60's and there was a gap there, then the Owens at number 8. I went to Stockton Wood infants and juniors and also had some piano lessons at Mrs Stewarts who I think lived in Dymchurch Road - anybody remember her- a very old lady in the early 60's

    Also anybody remember Jack Allans the toy shop - used to sell toy soldiers and Swopits (which were really the cowies and indians to have in them days).

    When at St Chrissies there was a lad called Peter Foggo - rather he was always called Foggo and I knew his first name was Peter. Perhaps it was actually Foggs? He'd be 59 now.

    Thanks for resurrecting the thread - just re-read some old memories.

    I went to Millwood School in the seventies & although there may have been more of them, i remember that there where a couple of Edwards lads, Peter & one younger by maybe 2-3 years. Think they lived in the flats but moved on to Heaton Close up the road.
