    Default Breck Road, Everton

    Does anyone have a photograph of Edensor Terrace, which was off Breck Road, Everton? When our houses were demolished a Leo's (remember them?) supermarket was built. Asda occupies the site now. I revisited the area last Summer and although the other side of Breck Road still exists, it's not the same. Does anyone remember Mrs. Davies' Pet Food Shop, and Foxes chippy. Mr. Fox would give you a freshly cooked, thick-cut chip wrapped up in newspaper whilst you were waiting for your portions to be served. He would put them in a bowl for you if you wanted.

    I'd love to see a photo of Edensor terrace - I vaguely remember walking through the street ( wasn't it an 'L' shape, or it curved around ? because I think you came out onto Breck rd - by where Tylers the shoeshop was.

    I do remember the chippy and pet shop

    There was a pub called the 'Mona Castle' and do you remember the Chinese restaurant further up by the Royal pub ? it was called The Pearl I think.

    We used to drink in the Thirlmere and Lutine Bell as my mate's bro-in-law lived in Bulwer st off breck rd. That has now been drastically shortened.

    Default Edensor Terrace, off Breck Road

    Edensor Terrace ran (straight) from Breck Road as far as Barnes Street, then for some reason it became St.Albans, which then ran onto Whitefield Road.
    I remember Tyler's shoeshop, and Dick's shoeshop, and the Maypole, which used to sell chocolate slab cake for one and six.
    One the corner of Edensor Terrace was Prouts's garage and Whitehead's florists.

    it's a bit of a misty memory for me - I was only a kid at the time. I just recall walking along that way with my grandmother and I remember us cutting through Edensor terrace and she was telling me that a relative had lived there. (I must have got mixed up with saying it came out by the shoe shop - I'll have a look at an old map and see if I can refresh my memory.


    The Chip shop I remember because when I was a teenager we used to go to the Belmont Youth club and afterwards to the chippy
