    Default Albion Street

    does anyone have a pic of this street taken roundabout the late 60's or before the area was demolished?

    Albion street ran parralel with StGeorges church,cannot remember the street name and the wall of StGeorges graced the street all the way down,the other street at the bottom of Albion Street was Northumberland Terrace.
    Albion Street was at the back of StDomingo Road,in the street was a club at the top if memory serves me right it was called "Albion House"? you used to go up a flight of stone steps to go into the hall.
    I wus a nipper when I lived there in the street but was a right romeo with the young ladies when they used to sit outside on the steps.

    What a site this is so many memories of the past.

    Thanks for helping out if ya can.
    George.

    Albion House is still there George but don't know if it's still in use or not. I have some pics of the flats/maisonettes on my site below.

    Hi Ged
    Awsome site you have put up there alas it was the houses before the maisonettes I was interested in as someone argued with me there was no front gardens in Albion Street.
    There was as we lived one of the houses opposite to the ones that didn't have front gardens.
    They were on a bit of turf and a privvy edged bush but they was big enough and to bury our dog in.

    Much appreciated Ged.
    For the life of me I can't even remember the street after Albion St going towards nethy way,I remember a very old grocery store and thats it?

    Anyone remember a climb of a very steep wall I'm sure it was called the cat walk? and it might of been part of the john bagot building left there after the hospitals demolished state?

    Cheers.

    Would the street going north have been York Terrace, Hobart Street or Torr Street? It may even have been abolished during the redevelopment.

    Hi Ged
    Ok I've remembered...
    You had Albion Street, at the top by StGeorges was Torr St,at the bottom was York Terrace and the next street was Northumberland Terrace.

    Yay,the grey matter is still working,just got to give it a thump now and again.
    As someone said "dont look at me like that or I'll give ya a Nethy Gob".

    Hi Robbo
    Thanks for the welcome.
    I did browse that site and came acroos those pics.Havalock street was my playground around 64/5 as its where a few of us urchins made it our race track,we used to get some wide boards and nail a piece of wood on the front of the board to act as an handrail,we would then wax the boards underneath with a candle and from the top of Havvy we were pushed down the street on the boards.
    You had to have no sense to do this because at the bottom was a busy Nethy road and before you got to the bottom you rolled or jumped off the board or you'd end up having a relationship with a car or vans side.

    Cheers.

    Hey just remembered I have a DVD of a film made in the 50's or 60's maybe I can take some stills off it as pictures?

    The film was "The Violent Playground" and is mainly based around Gerard Gardens with loads of clips around Scottie Rd ect.

    I have it - 1957 Rank - released in 58, not many of Scottie in it though. Perhaps 'Us and them' by Peter Leeson, available at the Rotunda College, Gt Mersey st for just a 3 donation would be better. Ring them on 0151 207 2176.

    My older brother knocked around with an Albert Schorah - an unusual name. They lived in the St. Joseph's area, perhaps Cazneau st at one time too, in fact I think one of the family still live in Christian st?

    because of the clearing.

    The club had a footie pitch at the back didn't they? it was on StDomingo and was put up where some shops had been knocked down?

    Hi again Ged
    If you can also have a look for StDomingo as well,ie on the opposite side to "Tommy Whites" more to Stgeorges church area as there were a couple of shops that had tenaments over them.
    They were more like flats because you had to climb a few sandstone steps and when you got to the walkway it had castiron railings all the way along.

    Cheers.

    Default Landing stage

    Rock Ferry Landing Stage 1952. The slipway was built in 1802 and the iron pier in 1899. It was demolished in 1957.

    I don't think the old Albion house is still standing ,I'm sure it was knocked down along with the Fred Robinson Laundry when they built the Albion club,will check tomorrow

    they were filming at the Albion Club last week,not sure if it was for a film or TV

    Here is the 1908 street map of the area.




    and an old LRO pic of York Terrace looking west towards its junction with Netherfield road north and Thomaston street beyond. The ante-natal clinic is on the near right.




    Both from the Edwardian A-Z Liverpool book by Paul Bolger.

    How do Horoscope.

    First off Ged has some pics on his site here.... http://www.inacityliving.piczo.com/ press F3 and in the seachbox at the foot of the page type in Albion Street,you must first go into one of the links as you scroll down,I cannot remember but I think they are in the Pre war scenes link?

    If you want them please ask Ged for them,they don't show Albion Street looking up or down the street just the two house that where left standing at the demolishing stages,Ithink there's four?

    Secondly,you say you lived at number 12? if I remember correctly the boys club was Albion House? if this is the case that side up to the boys club was even numbers and started at the bottom Nothhumberland Terrace end of Albion Street ie #2 and 52 would have been right next to Albion house,then after Albion House there where another couple of houses and I don't know their numbers.

    I so I'd like to know if I have this correct from you because me mem is vague on a few slots of Albion Street,I'll reveal the house number I lived in on your response,you see as far as I can make out if I'm correct then #12 would have been the Faircloughs?

    Do you remember the Kelly's,Cammicks,Smiths?

    I lost track of this thread,Ged sorry if Ididn't thank you for those two other pics of Northumberland Terrace and Cicero.

    I borrowed that book off a Neighbour and never seen the Northy one in it,did Freddy O'Connor have an early and later edition of his book as the one I looked at was early?

    That's ok George.

    I think it was re-printed at some time so I must have the last re-print if that pic wasn't in your neighbours book.
