    Default Liverpool in the 70s

    I have put up a number of photos on photobucket. I'm afraid my memory is not what it was, so I'm a bit hazy about some of the locations, so if anyone can help I'd be grateful:

    Fantastic pics John. The only one I can name out of the un-named ones is the Harland and Wolfe works of which there is one on Strand Road and another on Regent Road. I have seen your Albert Dock ones on another site and took a couple of now shots on another thread here.

    Great pics and grateful to individuals who have scanned their own photos to make up a historic record. The old warehouse looked things of beauty - and the city was packed with them. Yet at the time we did not look at them that way, even the old Georgian houses. We looked at them as scruffy old buildings that should be demolished and icons of a dim dark past. We wanted new modern buildings. We saw pictures of New York, Hong Kong, etc and wanted that.

    Only when I got involved in renovating the old buildings that in the early 70s were listed, did I really start to appreciate what Liverpool had and it was disappearing fast around us.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Yes, just look at Seymour st in the 1980s and then now to see what we must strive to keep.

    At first I thought that one might be Myrtle Street, and I'm still not sure!

    Its not Windsor Street it might be Myrtle Street but you are certainly looking at Grovelands on Grove Street with Entwistle Heights and Milner House in the far background. Groveland are the small flats in the picture.

    Then again it doesnt look like Myrtle Street as you cant see Myrtle Gardens so it could a street that was demolished somewhere around Vine Street

    Yes, I thought that looked like Entwhistle Heights, but you wouldn't see that along Myrtle Street, which is what made me think it might be Windsor Street.

    I didn't think Entwistle could be seen from Myrtle, is it not Mulgrave st?

    Just in case anyone is wondering, this is the picture we are discussing:



    Looking at it again I don't think that tower block is Entwhistle Heights, wasn't that more of a slab block.

    Being forensic about it, the shadows of the woman and child are quite short, which suggests its near noon, in which case south is to our right, and the street is running from south west to north east.

    "hey la, what's this street called?"

    Is it not Grove Street? Not sure myself but I thought I recognised the Sheltered Scheme that stands on that road. But then again.....

    Great pics Danesis. Thanks

    Have a look at the link and it shows two sides to Entwistle Heights. The side on show on this topic is facing towards Grove Street

    Yes, its me, I'm thinking of Toxteth Heights rather than Entwhistle Heights.

    So, back to my original thought that its Myrtle Street, looking East towards Grove Street.
