    Default kirkdale

    Hello all - can anybody tell me what happened to Tillard Street please, I
    believe it was in Kirkdale somewhere. At least it was in 1889 because there
    was a murder committed there! And how about Hogarth Road (L4) where I
    passed the first 13 years of my existence? It seems to have disappeared in
    a complete re-shuffle of the area, including the Kirkdale Homes (otherwise
    known as the Workhouse) where I worked for a brief period as an employee
    of the Liverpool Corporation. Any info would be most appreciated.

    Tillard Street was halfway down Easby Road.I walked past it every day going to St Johns School 1942 till 1948. It had a geengrocers shop on one corner
    where we used to get a penny worth of fades ( old apples and pears with the bad bits cut out) on the opposite corner was a general store where we bought our sinkers (it`s called bread pudding now) after coming out of Westminster Road baths,
    The area was demolished and new houses built but they never lasted long.
    I think there might be an odd bit of Kirkdale homes perimeter wall still standing

    I believe Kirkdale homes (old workhouse) can be found on my site 18stanley. Click on the link below and see a view of them from Rumney road and welcome to the forum by the way. Some great memories there Gregs dad.

    A belated thank you,Ged. I'm gradually putting its story together with a
    few good pics.
    Now for a harder one, with even more memories for me. Any pics or info
    of North Dingle? Especially a photo before its makeover, when the last
    vestige of the tannery was still operating?

    Or should I be thanking Greg's Dad?
