    Post Oldest Original House 1874.

    Here's a few pics of the oldest house in L9. It is the only house along the lane which has been kept to it's original design.
    The owner said that he thinks it started off as a doctors house for Fazakerley hospital patients.

    Hi Zap

    You could be right that it's the oldest house in L9 although 1874 does not seem very old compared to what I know about the age of Liverpool buildings....

    The old school house next to St Mary's, Walton is believed to date back to 1613.

    Default Thomas Parr's House, Seel Street c.1799

    Thomas Parr's House [complete with warehouse in the yard behind], Seel Street c.1799

    According to James Stonehouse, writing in 1869 in The Streets of Liverpool: [Thomas] "Parr, used to boast that he had the handsomest house, wife, and horse, in Liverpool."

    So there's no older houses in Fazakerley ? Are there any older ones in Aintree.
    How about "the oldest in Norris green" ?

    NL, there are lots of older houses around Liverpool with bricked up windows. There are some around Anfield where I live, will take a photie next time I'm out. Not sure what it was about, but used to hear the older generation tell us that it was to do with a window tax or something.
    Sounds pretty bizarre windows being taxed

    It's utterly true and very strange.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_tax

    Childwall Abbey Pub gives an excellent example of this with the 4 'painted on' windows to the right.

    Sounds like he owned 'house, wife & horse' - lock, stock & barrel. At least he had the common decency to put his wife, before his horse?
