    Default A Pictorial Record of Every Street in Liverpool

    The aim of this website is to record in photographs every street, road, drive etc (you get the idea!) in Liverpool.

    It was first suggested by Tony Siebenthaler, but it was Pat Neil from The Friends of Liverpool Monuments Civic Society who informed me of it. The only way to embark on this project is with your help by sending me your Liverpool Street photos. Every image will be credited with your name. All I ask is that the photograph you submit is taken by you.

    A good idea is to keep and retain a hi-res copy before sending me your low-res shot, as it may be requested for use by a publisher. When you send me your photo, please include the name and location i.e. "London Road, Liverpool 3" or by naming your image (.jpgs only please) "L3londonroad". I'll keep the image size to a max of 800 pixels in height and 600 pixels in width.

    Well, thats it! Look forward to receiving your photos! Please email them to admin@liverpoolstreets.co.uk

    Cheers, Dave Wood

    I think this is a great idea to get every single street recorded. Despite the city engineers department records from way back and a one man brave attempt by Harry Ainscough in the late 60s and early 70s, I don't believe this has ever been undertaken before.

    Every street ! ? that would mean hundreds ! Quite a task.

    I could take a few on my travels - not sure if the pictures would be up to scratch tho' .. and I imagine it would be time consuming uploading them to a host for resizing and then to send.

    I'll have a look and see what I've got.


    ps,

    there are a few streets knocking around on this site.

    When you say Liverpool, How far do you mean? Huyton/Prescot are they included? great idea this. do you have any areas covered or know of areas with no interest so far? maybe people could say where they can do, then others could do different locations.


    Parts of Old Swan and Huyton are good for me
    good luck

    I have seen some of your past pictures, LL, and they are good. So I don't think you'll have any problem quality-wise.

    I can't really answer whether Huyton and Prescot are to be included, but I would imagine that they should be part of this great task.
