    It's definitely Leander Street which is listed as L3 in Kellys. I don't know how I was given the picture, but it was somehow listed under Roscommon St. The records office have mixed them up somehow.

    Frogs and snails and puppy dogs tails, that's wot little boys are made of.

    I just add that it was a different age. As far as I know I'm not in the "Zulu" photograph, I am sure there would be no racism intent and re-enacting Rourke's Drift would be a part of history for many.
    I recall one girl in my class being of Indian/ Pakistani origin, I'm sure she would support me and St Peters.

    Chas

I know that rounders was played by all the school. There are some faces in the final pic that seem to be.... June McGuiness and Janet Holden. Such a long time ago....

    I've used a photo program to automatically enhance the contrast and brightness after discarding the colour info which was the brown colour of age. Apart from that the photos are untouched.

    Hi there. I'm not sure if you can help or not but this picture in particular has made me stop in my tracks...

    http://www.yoliverpool.com/forum/att...2&d=1309635678

    My dad went to that school around that time, his name was Alan Baker. On the picture it has the name A.Baker. I'm not sure if its the one holding the sign or the person behind him as they both have a look of him but I was wondering if you have any more info on this picture? Or any more pictures like this from around the same time frame? I lost my dad in 2005 and my mum in 2008 and unfortunately I don't really have that many people I can go to and ask for information. I don't have any pictures of my dad as a child, only my mum.. So any help or advice would be greatly appreciated by any of you.

    Thank you

    Maria.

    I've just come across YoLiverpool and saw this thread so registered so I can upload these pictures.
    We lived in 41 Back Roscommon Street, three doors down from St Peter's. I was born in 1954, my brother Alan in 1956 and we left in 1966 to go to Cantril Farm. I'd already moved to the John Hamilton High in 1965 and continued there until 1972.

    These family snapshots give a hint as to how small and dark our street was, in the shadow of Rossy School. Chas, is that the "stable" at the back of your house, next to Rossie playground?

    There's the only class photo I have, taken in Miss Mather's around 1959. Either the photographer didn't have a wide angle lens or the photo has been trimmed as so many children are cut out of it. I'd be made up to see a larger version if one exists.

    Anyway, I hope these photos are of interest.

    Great website; all the hardwork and time spent running it is appreciated.

    John Ambrose

    Hi John,
    It's great to hear from you. Pictures are great, absolutely astounded by the stable view. Yes, that was our stables. You've made my day. I've got lots of other pics retrieved from LRO of St Peters. I'll update this thread with them next week.
    Regards,
    Chas

    Hi Maria,
    I'll try to reply properly later. I haven't been on the site for a while.
    Best wishes,

    Great photos John. Yes, your street was dark and narrow wasn't it.

    Hi Chas. I'm glad the photos meant something to you. I scanned all of our family photos a couple of years ago; they're from the days when only one print was made, and the negatives were never kept, so there never was a chance of sharing them. Isn't the internet great? If I get the chance I'll ask my cousins if they have any I can scan. In our very small street both my dad's and mother's parents lived, as well as two of my paternal aunties (surnames Haver, Coleman, Routledge ) so there is a good chance you were mates with at least some of them. The picture of St Peter's cricket and football teams in 1956 both have my cousin Stan Coleman in them, and possibly his brother Ray. If I get any more pictures I'll post them. By the way, your Roscommon Street neighbour Joey Charnock's family is related to my mother. A very small world then.

    .........

    Hi Ged. Yes, dark, and windy too. Somewhere in the LRO is a document from the 1930s about the rebuilding of Rossy School causing a loss of light to the top of our street.

    Forgive me if I'm duplicating anything that is elsewhere on the site (I'm new here) but some filming was done in St Peter's in 1964 for their programme "The Singing City" which is available on the BBC website in their archive section. Here's a link to the programme. Only a very short piece of the filming was used, but there are clips of Mr Newton, and one of girls skipping in the playground.

    Best wishes to all, and thanks again for the site.

    Hi John,
    I was mate's with both Jimmy and Kenny Routledge. I recall many summer evenings spent on the Routledge's doorstep while the sun wet down. Kenny playing skiffle songs on his acoustic guitar ("Tom Dooley" , "Freight Train", echoing through the street). I also remember their elder sister, Ann, was she a typist?.
    The cousin's who lived farther down towards Portland Place were a bit older than Jimmy or Kenny, still they'd have a game of football or cricket with us in that same back street. I think we'd follow the normal games seasons, even managing to fit tennis into the year's agenda. We never tried skiing or sledging when snow fell, snow was too precious to a young kid's mind.
    Probably gilding the lily to some, but heck, I am 63 this year.
    Best wishes, John, my next post will include memories of Joey Charnock, looking forward to your post.
    Chas
