Found another site with some very informative stuff..especially for those who may be doing a family tree or even curiosity living in a street with war damage.
The road i live in..most of the houses were damaged including my own,when i was converting my loft i found a lot of charred joists & a lot that were joined to another that wasn't replaced,the stairwell area was the worst.
5 doors down from me on the i found out there was a casualty from a bombing..links below.

The ones that stick out is when the Co-Op shelter on Stanley road took a direct hit,without researching i think the site is where the Lidl is located now. The other being many casualties at Brocklebank dock,will have to look into that but i assume that was where the ship loaded with munitions was hit.


Just going through this tonight and it got me thinking, so I googled a bit and came across this. It has bought a tear to my eye I won’t lie. The incident in Old Swan on 17th September killed my Grandad who was a fireman. My dad was just two months old.

A few years ago my cousin married a girl from the Swan. Turns out her grandad was also a fireman who won the George Cross for the same incident!

I recorded that programme on 5 the other day about the May Blitz. I knew Liverpool had been bombed, but I never knew how badly, 8 nights of raids with the sole intention of destroying as much of the City as possible. 2,000 dead, including 1200 in one night, babies killed in Mill Road, awful.

They featured that ship and had the captains son on, it was called the SS Malakand, Huskisson Dock 2 it was in, it had 350 tonnes of munitions on board, the captain was stood close to it and survived as the blast missed him. Bits of the ship were raining down for a minute.

This is the result

It's just a bit further along - where the Sefton MBC one stop shop now stands

I can remember my Dad telling me about it when I was a kid - there used to be a shop there then - I can't remember what it was though.

They talked about this in the C5 programme and had pictures showing the damage.

On terrifying statistic they mentioned was that by the time the Luftwaffe had finished battering Bootle, only 15% of the houses remained.

I think it's St James road, the steps belonging to the Anglican cathedral.

Not sure of an exact date, suspect the late 50's or early 60's, but this is Norton Street which runs between London Road and Islington.
In the background you can see the boozer which used to stand on the junction near to where Machine Mart is now. Pretty sure it was called The Swan.

I think it's a sheet of paper caught in the wind. If you enlarge the image you can make out a shadow below it on the road, see attached.

Interesting snippet here about that shop in the background called "The Tin Hat"

"When my grandfather, Arthur Cecil Scott, returned from the First World War, he set up a business at a shop at 21a Breck Road. He was by trade a master boot and shoemaker. He nailed his military 'tin hat' outside his shop in 1919. He and his family lived at 19 Letterstone Street, Everton. He died of paralysis due to gas poisoning as a result of the Great War, and is buried in Anfield Cemetery.

"In the late 60s, a cousin of mine, when coming home from school, went to retrieve the tin hat but the building had been demolished and the hat had disappeared."

Your letter struck a real chord with me, Ken. I remember the property in Breck Road which in later years became the 'Tin Hat' Sweet Shop well. This was run in the 50s by the family of one of my mother's great friends. I remember the 'Tin Hat' nailed above the door which had clearly survived for all of those years.

 
If you enlarge the picture you can make out the actual tin hat on the pillar between the two doors, red line pointing to it on attached.

All swept aside back in the late 60's and now looks like this around there. (Streetview)

Does anyone have any images of inside the 'World Museum' when it used to be the old 'William Brown Street' museum? In particular the trains and cars that used to be in there.

Thanks
