    I was born in Everton Valley , as i remember it the was big houses on the same side as the pub , we lived in rooms , the house was owned by Johnny Morrisey who played for Everton , the there was the bank , and over the road was Pobjoy's jewellers and Harry Quuins bike shop .. Opposite the house i remember the bus stop and Barn's sweet shop , i cant remember what else was there though .. I'll ask my Dad , he'll know .

    Don't recall any flats being at the bottom of everton valley? there where hi-rise flats at the junction of scotland Road and Boundry Road,behind those flats where Hi-rise flats on Great Homer Street.

    What type of flats?

    Here's a pic below of Everton Valley which Ged F posted elsewhere,the bank you can see opposite the pub and on the pub side further up(Blue Gates) I'm sure that was either a builders yard or council depot? opposite the pub is the Barcleys Bank,its closed down now and in recent times was a Upholstrey funiture business.

    I can't realy pinpoint what the yard was he's on about,even though I was forever going around that area when I wus a lad.

    Lived in Albion Street which was the next street to St Domingo Rd,went to Venice street school and I used to either cut through Tommy white gardens or sometimes take the long way round which meant going right down the bottom of St Domingo and up past Notre Dame girls school.

    What period are you interested in?
    I might have some information.

    The Record Office have post-war Ordnance Survey maps (called 50 inch) which are a large enough scale to identify anything.

    Chances are they have copies from each decade.

    The red brick build next door but one from the pub up is or was the Lyra or Lydol? Theater at one time,the blue gates was some sort of works,next to that was the council depot...knew there was a council depot on the block somewhere.

    The one I was referring to was William Rainfords, 11-13 Everton Valley, Builders Merchants, Haulage and Demolition, Plant Hire and Ready Mixed Concrete. I think it also was a brickworks.

    As far as I know the only pubs in Everton Valley were the Derby Arms and the Valley.
    Next door to the Derby Arms was what remained of the Lyric Theatre.
