    Crocus.
    Everybody will be checking their A to Z's, or they might have a copy of "Streets of Liverpool" which covers street names very well.
    Of course, the main reason areas were grouped together under one theme was to help the postmen.

    My in-laws have lived in both Crocus and Harebell Street. There is also Daisy Street and Daisy street school had an underground baths. Woodbine street is where they smoke untipped ciggies Snowdrop is another and the early Mersey ferries had some of these names too.

    Another oddity of Daisy Street school (I don't know if this went on elsewhere) the protestants and the catholics were kept seperated at play time and had different dinner times and going home times yet a lot of the children were mates outside of school time so another instance where religion seperated people who would otherwise get on.

    Thanks for the pic, Ged.
    Let's keep more coming, and make the threads something more than a list of names.
    Remember, Kev says: "Pics, Pics Pics!!!"

    When I was in the Merchant Navy I knew a gay steward called Jimmy Sanderson - though he was known to one and all as Gloria.
    He used to claim that he was born in Pansy Street but never knew if he was just winding us up. Quite a character.

    The Prince of Wales pub at the top of Pansy Street is known locally as 'The Pansy'. Some great detailing in the brickwork and around the windows.

    The 6 flower streets previously mentioned are all off the West side of Stanley road, however, there is just one on the East side called Primrose.
