    Default 1950s flats and maisonettes.

    Boundary Street, now new housing. Just the other side of the bridge is now the big tai pan chinese restaurant. This area was desolate for quite some time.

    Great subject for a thread.
    It seems to be the policy now to get rid of them all, so snap away chaps, while you can.
    I've got some of the Dingle I'll post.

    I remember you saying your back wall was Everton library. You should have made the council pay your lecky bill.

    These flats fronted onto Leeds street and backed onto Worfield Street. Vauxhall Gardens stood behind them.

    I'm not sure I know the subtle differences between 50s/60s designs...some had round windows, landings, raillings and some didn't. Here's a couple that have since been demolished.

    Essex Street Jan. 2005


    Lamport Street (rear) Sept. 2004...you can see where the raillings have been bricked-up.
