    Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Ged for putting this online.



    Today I was trailing through and came across a video link about " Socialism on trial " so i thought lets have a gander. Nearly fell off my chair as there on the film is my Dad getting interviewed.

    He passed away nearly 3 years ago, and we dont really have much on video of him and nothing of him talking. so this is so special.

    Its so emotional to see him and he is younger in the video. I can tell you not many hankies left in our house.

    Thank you Ged as I would not have found that without your link.

    Oh yeah the photos on the site are great too

    The post war b&w photos are awesome.

    Alot of the photos show how less bland alot of Liverpool buildings were back then.

    Thanks John and Max. Although I can't lay claim to capturing those great black and white scenes that we have to largely thank Harry Ainscough for, I do try and copy as many varied areas as possible to show when in the LRO.

    Getting regular correspondence these days off people submitting pics to me and some wanting me to send some of the LRO ones to them so they can complete their family tree area photos.

    I have around 200 more colour pics to upload soon to the streets ahead and people and places pages and another visit to the LRO coming up to complete the schools section and add to the post war b&W page.

    Careful John!

    We will be calling him 'Ged the Head' if you praise him too much.

    I have just been reading his current joke about the eccles cake!

    ( Although his site is good isn't it!)

    Looking forward to that Ged! Just spent a considerable amount of time looking over your site! I now go to JMU on Byrom Street, its only now I appreciate what it all used to be like, and how much it has changed.

    I have just updated by own site, there's two images of Thornside Walk in Gateacre that could be up your street (forgive the pun!), so if your interested, give me a shout! There's also a few from Lee Park which may be of use to you.

    All the best

    Thanks chaps. Russ, that is a fantastic site, I have looked in before but so much more has been added. I think it's brilliant that just ordinary streetscapes are captured - Colour versions of those great images captured by Harry A. and as important as they are right now, one day yours and others like them will be looked at in the same vein when they are no longer there. Great pics of the flats in Gateacre and Lee Park.

    I remember the zebra bus in the 1970s or was it like an Everton mint. It was always the 79 to Lee Park or Netherley and it always seemed to pass me when I was up at Hatton's model railway shop on Smithdown road, his original little shop. The nos 4 and 5 to Woolton always seemed to be single deckers and I remember I used to wonder where Lee Park was and other exotic far away places on the front of Ribbles like Lydiate, Thornton and Ormskirk.

    Hardly anyone in our square was driving back then, it would seem a mission to get to these places that were just names on a bus. Nowadays it's half an hour tops.

    Around 100 LRO and own photographs have been added to various pages on my website below (see home page for which pages are updated each visit)

    New items include this photo of Rose Place, Liverpool 3.






    On 5th February 1935 the Liverpool Coporation city engineers department took extensive photographs of the inner city area recording delapidated and unsanitary properties including many courts. This is a photograph of 99-105 Rose Place showing some stylish property reminiscent of what's still on view in the south of the city centre.

    No.105 is the furthest property situated on the corner of Fox Street and is occupied by William Washington, a butcher. The fancy property on the opposite corner at No.26 Fox Street at its junction with Bute Street is Blackledge's bakery.

    Hi Spike,
    just looking through your photo's,(some great one's there) and the pic's of Old Swan college reminded me of a visit I made there,a couple of years ago, to the reception desk,in the smaller building. Inside, they (?) had kept the ornate sandstone doorway of the previous building(college?) as a display, and I wondered if this had been saved? I never found out what had happened to the previous building, thinking,maybe, it had been bombed in ww.2,so do you know anything of it's history?

    Thanks Gerrard! It's amazing what does change in such a short amount of time...quite worrying in a way!

    Buses back in the day did have that exotic feeling about them...when Glenvale was bought out by Stagecoach, the city lost a bit of it's identity in a way. Anywhere can have buses operated by Arriva or Stagecoach!

    Great archive image of Rose Place, I will have to go and have a look at the page in full!
