    Well in Lindylou. It seems Mandy and her boyfriend are there too, did she email you to go as a foursome/fivesome?

    In case anyone doesn't know.

    As part of the Liverpool Historic Society event at Hope Uni on Shaw Street, Everton.

    Gardens of Stone will be screened and my model will be on display.

    It is recommended that you arrive at 1.30 pm on sunday 16th for the 2pm screening as there are 80 seats taken already by the Historical Society members.


    All the best,


    Ged.

    Default On our block.

    I like the title The Rise and Fall I lived in Dingle Mount during the sixties then one day I was driving past and it wasn't there. When I hear 'Pretty Flamingo' by 'Manfred Man' it always take me back there.

    Default On the Landing.

    It is difficult being based down here but I am sure it will be interesting perhaps something can be posted. It amazes me the amount of blocks that still exist in London.

    Yes, you always see Londons art deco tenement landing blocks on the likes of The Bill or when london's burning used to be on. Also on news reports, interview backdrops or those Home programmes that there's so many of nowadays.

    Pics of Dingle Mount can be found here if you haven't already partaken paddy.

    Default Cockney dwellings.

    I helped Nick Raynsford get in to the Fulham seat in London I remember going up the steps of a block that was just like Dingle Mount. What struck me was the graffiti on the walls it was as if I had wrote it, yet it was tenenement kids who had done it in a different city.It kind of scared me but it was also facinating as life experiences for people with different dialects are often quite similar. I was born in Warwick Gardens. I have visted most of the blocks in the pictures for one reason or another. One block has me miffed Woodstock Gardens I dont remember the name.Yet I bet I will know where itwas .

    I posted this info up yesterday on the advice of Ged in the "Little Italy" thread as Debz will be promoting her book there along with Pauls film.
    So I certainly am looking forward to seeing a few of you there.

    My friend, Biffo the Bouncer was brought up in the Bull Ring.
    I'm sure he'd love to see "Gardens of Stone".

    looking forward to a meeting at last then

    .. perhaps we can chat and you can explain to me why you posted some ungallant comments about me on SSC.

    should we chat before or after the G of S showing ? - might be better afterwards when we have more time.

    An opportunity not to be missed. It's to our own benefit that this evening brings individuals together, with a shared interest in Liverpool and the G of S. That is after all why we are all here on Yo!

    I wonder if we'll get any explanations why people are still getting "stalked"?
    One lady in particular is still being harassed.
    And I find what are supposed to be "Intimidating" messages in my profiles.
    If ever the expression "Get a life" was relevant it belongs to this person.

    Default The colosseum

    I still don?t know where Woodstock Gardens where situated? that was the only one I didn?t know. I bet when someone tells me I will know. I write poetry quite a lot and I would love to write one about the tennies that could become part of the history. I have quite a few good ideas so if anyone can use my poem let me know. I thought the show at myrtle gardens was such a nice photo. It reminds you of how we where and the innocence and love. I bet the ice cream man made a fortune.
