No he`s not Gerrard. He`s from Sheffield, mate of mine down here in Oxford. I lived all my life on
Scottie, first in Woodstock Gdns, ( Woody ), then after they were getting knocked down, we lived on "The Radcliffe" for six moon before moving to Benledi St.
Me Mar & Dar still there though! Got your personal msg lad, cheers, speak to you again soon.
Cheers for the link to Scottie press mate! Found a great section with photos of lots of old pubs on The Road. Memory Lane eh!! TOP!
Anyone know when "View 146" was completed? It's the redevelopment of two ex-council flats into swanky apartments just off Great Homer Street.
Any info would be welcome!
So that would make it 2004! Thanks for that Dave!
I couldn't remember which year but I do remember the two blocks shrouded in hoardings which I used to spot when going into the Wallasey Tunnel.
Here's a couple of pics which confirms 2004.
The first one is May 2003 and the second is July 2004
Great image Gerard! Love that night time shot!
Thanks for the info guys, can I be cheeky and ask you wonderfull people if you know the name of this tower block? ...
It's on the corner of Great Homer Street and Boundary Street and is next to the Anchor on that open paved area next to the junction with Smith Street and Kirkdale Road.
Any info would be helpful! I just want to make my captions less vague!
All the best
I used to pass it quite often en-route to Wallasey from Northumberland but I just couldn't think of its name! Keeps happening to me at the moment!
Thanks for that Gerard!
Shame on you's ha ha, it's in my first book, a 1960s shot of it when the grounds where the anchor and buoy are was a kids playground.
I don't mean to be rude but that's got to be one of the most depressing areas of not only Liverpool but England.
Which, Great Homer Street? It's vibrant of a saturday when the market's there and people come from far and wide and project Jennifer which gets under way in earnest shortly should bring a bit more life back to it. The area, along with the top end of Scotland road was decimated in the 60s.
Its just a shame that it's lost most of it's neighbourhoods thats all.
