Still there and runs over the Fairy Glen.
Yup and what a sorry state that Glen is these days :( Used to love it there. The bridge was our start/finish line for Cross Country competitions at our school.

Making it impossible to drive a full circle around the park at the point is a fucking nuisance though - I forget every time I go there and want to go from Aigburth to Toxteth the scenic way ;)

These are the type of old photos I love..1960 somewhere in Everton courtesy of Angelcake.



"Frances Pulford, pictured, 72 years old, emptying a bucket of washing-up water down a gutter in the street where she lives. There is no sink in any of the nine houses. There is no sink because there weren't any drains, only 1 cold water tap for each house. 1960 Liverpool"

Assuming that Bold St pic was taken in December, those kids were at the cusp of any old winter to one they’d never see the likes of again.

I remember the winter of 1962/63 well as I was just ten. I still went to school and Liverpool got off relatively lightly to other parts of the country.

And applause to Medellin for unearthing such great photos.

Not exactly the same angle, and must be slightly old as no big blue cladding job to hide Anfield from jealous eyes, but nearly 100yrs later...

Did the houses just fall down or did the Luftwaffe bomb them? Won't have been bought by Everton because thats Redshite behaviour.

Ta mate..one of the reasons I post photos is for the reaction posts & stories/memories others have from seeing them.
Like this..some reason Birkenhead shouts out where this was taken..



Not so old but memories jump out from this personally..





No idea where..

That bottom one is horrendous! Brings back memories of taking the kids out for a swim near Egremont on the 1970s. I went in first and rapidly turned back just before I butted a floating turd.

That large building has Palace on the side - and this is where Gulley would have sailed in, identified the exact year of the cars on the promenade and the date on the can of Foster's floating with all the other detritus floating in, I assume, the Mersey.

In the background though, isn't that one of the tunnel ventilation shafts?

I reckon Rob's right, it is New Brighton. Looks like the Adventureland arcade to me rather than tunnel shaft. I was eating chips in that very shelter a couple of weeks ago, pretty sure.

Yeah could well be right mate. Looks like it has the same canopy type thing lower down and building continuing to the right.

It's definitely not either of the tunnel shafts and I think the New Brighton spot is right.
