    Crosbie Heights, Everton, 1975 Haigh Street, Everton, 1975 Two more superb images from Paul Trevor’s book (and forthcoming exhibition at The Walker), Like You’ve Never Been Away.

    SFX Annexe.. used as a secondary school for the main SFX on Salisbury St when I went there 1969-71ish


    The 'Grim' bit made me laugh in the description on the photo.. it was top notch inside that school.. spotless.
    Still remember the smell of scotch glue in the top floor woodwork classroom...
    and Johnny Nash the main PE teacher from the main school taking french lessons..

    I thought the entrance to SFX infants was in Haigh street? That's the way I went in anyway!

    Mind you it was waaaay back in the 1950s!

    To the left of the photo Lizzie1 you can make out a doorway on Haig St...that was the little tunnel entrance to the playground...that was the ONLY entrance and exit to the school when I went there, at least I cant remember using an entrance on Shaw St...


    I have fond memories of inside that tunnel... memories of speaking with 2 lads from Kensington named John and Terry ...they were never apart..the best of mates since infants through to leaving school....Terry was killed in a car crash in a mini bus just coming out the Mersey Tunnel Birkenhead side, some might remember it in the Echo...John ..(Big JR..) is now married to my cousin and is my best mate.....

    It could be my memory playing tricks Lizzie....there must have been a front entrance, I probably never used it because I had no need to...the tunnel entrance in Haigh St did me as I went home down past the 4 squares to where I lived around Gerard Gardens.

    This pic may mean something to those who went there then. Looking West down Langy on 29th March 1967. The Great Eastern pub and part of the 4 squares on Soho Street beyond.

    i attended S F X college `1948/52 on Salisbury St. The S F X school on Haigh St was an elementary school and had nothing to do with the college. The Prep school for the college was in Woolton where the college is now,moving in 1953/4 from Salisbury St.
    If your parents had a few bob their sons would be sent there,moving to the college at the age of 11. There was a percentage of places available for 11 plus scolarship winners at the college,of which I was one.
