    Default WORLD MUSEUM EXHIBITION

    It is with great pleasure that I can announce 'The changing face of local communities' Exhibition will be going into the World Museum, William Brown Street on the 4th floor 'Community Room' from Tuesday next 15th July until Thursday 31st.

    I hope you can get along there sometime during the duration.

    I never thought as a scruffy arsed youngster plodding around the St. Georges Hall and the Museum most weekends that i'd up exhibiting something in those places other than my 'little fella' to the girls down by the basement toilets.

    Both Ged's model and my film Gardens of Stone (short 15 minute version) will be on display. Like Ged says, it was unthinkable at the time when we knocked around there as kids, that we would ever be part of an exhibition (although some of Ged's clothes always looked like museum pieces to me )

    After last years event at St George's Hall, this is the nearest the projects have come to their original home (see attached pic which shows how close Gerard Gardens was to the museum; In construction circa 1935 courtesy of Liverpool Records Office).

    The event is on over two weekends. so hopefully a number of Yo members will get a chance to visit.

    Well done lads. I wonder if Ged's old muzzy with his old clothes will be on show?
    Paul my big sister said your film was superb. Can't wait for her to get me a copy
    Again well in lads.

    Ron Formby (who organised the exibition and he of the Scottie Press) pull up stands 'Changing face of Local Community' are to be exhibited at the museum these stands are a fantastic look back into our recent past depicting work, home and leisure, also about 30 of Ron's private photographic collection of 'Now and Then' prints. Definitely not to be missed

    Well done Ged for a fine reproduction of the Gardens
    Such a lot of detailed work gone into it. Must have taken you ages.

    Thanks Mandy. The reason that police car is on a wire is the blue light lights up. Probably doesn't anymore though

    Anyway.............

    One of the good things about getting in there after hours was to see parts of the museum not usually accessable to the public. Entering from the rear there is a massive lift (for moving dinosaurs and the like about) and a loading bay. I got to take some pics out of the rear windows which i'd not seen since the 1970s as the now defunct staircase was there back then.

    From the left, there is Adlington and Bispham House heights, built in 1966/67 - then panning to the right are the new apartments on Leeds Street.





    The end of the old Byrom street technical college as we knew it back then, now part of the JMU.




    I don't know but a couple of hundred low level bungalows and houses where the once vibrant tenements of Fontenoy and Gerard Gardens once stood, housing around 700 families seems to have rendered the area a bit souless
