The Josephine Butler House on Myrtle St.

I was proper pissed losing this & the manner in which it went too.

And the new building is shite, the fake brick cladding started falling off about a week after it was finished. Don't know why the uni love that brick cladding stuff so much, I noticed some falling off the Sydney Jones the other day. That's an architectural crime as well.

To be fair, it's been reported in the echo for the last four or five months.  It went on to consultation with the planning department on I think two occasions, after a protest.


March 2016.

I don't read the echo so little wonder I've not heard about it.  Although if that's the only way to hear about this sort of crap then the council isn't putting a lot of effort into publicising this shit imo

Sadly that's the council's MO..as little exposure as possible and get the wrecking ball in pronto

such a sad way to see it go....was only a car park yes, but it offered some welcome city-centre greenery and was a very aesthetically pleasing corner that complemented the surrounding architecture............in the 2012 strategic framework document there were possibilities of it becoming a city centre park (see below).....no such luck - see also the corner of Hardman Street and Hope Street (mentioned in the previous post) - which was similarly earmarked as a potential park/greenspace for students and visitors to the Philharmonic and is now a prefab student lego block with stick-on bricks.

I've Been banging the city centre greenspace / small parks for a while , if your plan is to entice people into the city centre which is my plan one day then green space is a must . New York and paris have this and we should be aiming for it ...but parks need maintenance and don't pay council tax I suppose . Would love to see a bit more philanthropy as well in the city centre , plenty of people from Liverpool have made it very good and are very rich .

One of the worst they ever destroyed was the Sailor's Home.  Imagine that in Liverpool One now, fucking beautiful building.

My mate's dad swears down there was an underpass at the end of Lark Lane going under Aigburth Road towards the station - anyone remember this?
Never heard of that mate, there is one from Sefton Park to Otterspool Park.

Agree.  A multi storey car park on Victoria Street will make the area feel really closed in and claustrophobic.  Like Wolstenholme Square is becoming.  Those new buildings are so out of scale with the surrounding area, it's bloody criminal they got the green light.  How the interior of the Kazimier wasn't listed I will never know.  It was amazing, incredibly unique imo.

When was that? I lived by Ogdens too but have to say I never noticed the smell or just that it was a nice sweet smell, noticed the buzzer that used to wake me up in the Morning though.  Loved the billboard with the glowing pipe.

Mid 70's onwards mate. One persons sweet to another persons sickly! Honestly, it used to run my stomach ragged. The shift horn was always 0755 each morning, if I recall. Got me out of the house to get the bus to school!

There's a new dodgy looking Steak Place at the end of Lark Lane now (Near the bus stop on Aigburth Road)

A few decent-ish cafe/bars at the end as well.

Me and the missus pop down there from time to time. Some have come, some have gone.

Don't go to Belly - minging food and terrible service.

Scal Punters Eh! Cheeky Bastards saw my first film there aged about 5 . Flemo's should be a thread about them. One time at aways before we changed fashion for ever with our wedges best way of identifying a fellow Scouser was the white patch on the back of their jeans with the crossed flags. Flemos only worn in Liverpool but we all wore them

Anyone remember the Sausage Factory n lift bridge in Litherland? Have looked for photos and can't find any with the happy n blissfully unaware pig on top of the building I remember as a kid.
I also remember being stuck on the bus - 55 & 28 - while the lift bridge did its thing.

I had a pair. The big draw was that they were made to measure and cheaper than Levis.
