    Default P.MAC/J.LENNON'S HOUSES

    Finally got round to going on this tour,the only one were you can go inside the houses.John Lennon's,at Menlove avenue,and Paul Mac's,in Forthlin rd!Even if you're not a moptops fan,it's fascinating seeing the lack of stuff we just take for granted,now,in both of the houses,i.e. carpet squares,with lino round the outside,wooden draining boards,coal fires,very basic by today's standards,and even though J.L. lived in a so-called middle class area,there wasn't that much difference,from P.M's council house,the address must have been enough! The only "problem" is, you can't take pic's inside, but see if you think one of the custodian looks a little familiar ?

    The guy in the denim jacket looks familiar, but can't for the life of me think who it is, or where from
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

    Two more addresses for McCartney that dont seem to figure in any tours. 72 Western Avenue Speke and 12 Ardwick Road Speke. I was once talking to the guy that presently lived i the Ardwick road house and he was in contact with Mike McCartney who had invited him to photograph/video shoots. McCartneys blacked out windows limo has been seen in Ardwick Road in the past on occasions when he has been up here. Sounds like he still has an oggle.

    Of course the worst bombing was to have already been and gone by then but they took no chances.

    Ged I wouldn't describe Sunbury rd as being small .. they are quite large houses inside.. and look at those double fronted bays These older type buildings have large rooms and a large hallway - unlike the council type shoeboxes. The Speke council houses are smaller apart from the fact they have a garden.

    Yes he did. No 25.

    He lived there as the Beatles broke into fame. People used to come from America and camp out overnight in the green. Then he bought a house for his parents in Mackets Lane before eventually having a bungalow built for them in Appleton Thorne Warrington.
