Street Name:Eastlake Street Street Number:9

Memory:Good to hear from you all who remember the days in the 50s. There was a shop in Heyworth Street called "Johnson & Blackburn" selling groceries. I recall my mother sending me to "Johnny Blacks" for boiled ham (on the slate of course), and playing on the "debris" at 48-50 Eastlake Street - football and ollies mainly. When my mother accidentally locked herself and the family out of the house, she lifted up the coal grate cover and lowered me down onto the coal so I could run through the creepy cellar up to the house and let her in. Spent hours with a notebook taking down number plates of passing cars. Remember the street parties for the coronation? 15/3/18

Street Name:Newlands St Street Number:3

Memory:Thank you Alan for your confirmation of my memories of Shaw St park. I was reading an article about the savage winter of 1947 and memories of that time came flooding back. It was the time when we also had a fuel crisis and no coal was available. I remember struggling through the snow at 7 yrs of age with my steering cart and going to a coal yard just off Queens road near the bottom and was able to get coal briquettes made up I believe of coal dust and something else. I also remembered all the pipes where frozen in the houses and we all had to go to the waterworks around the corner where we lived. The waterworks was in Aubrey and Margaret street where we filed up with any large kettles and buckets we had. I believe it still stands to this day. I am sure other members around my age group will remember these tough times. 14 / 3 / 18

Street Name:York Terrace Street Number:53&57

Memory:Alan. As you say, there is very little physically remaining of the old Everton apart from memories. Of course, there is the wonderful library which will, I hope, one day be restored to use. Lower down St. Domingo Road there is the Roman Catholic Presbytery still standing. This used to be No. 61 York Terrace until almost one hundred years ago when the presbytery was built to replace the large house on the site. Abutting the presbytery is the former coach house at the foot of the former garden of No. 59. This was still standing and in use when I visited the area a few years ago. In the 1940s, this building was used by Mr. Gouldson who had a shop in Northumberland Terrace to stable his horse and trap. Boys used to go into the Gouldsons shop and ask Mrs. Grace Gouldson for Sarsaparilla. She refused to sell it to them unless they asked for Sparkling Special! The lads called her Amazing Grace.

Street Name:priory Street Number:40

Memory:Dear LTE my half-brother liked Everton so much he bought a newly constructed semi-detached house constructed in late 1980s on the Heyworth street bend corner where tanfield Road and Eastlake street formerly were . He was quite impressed with the new house until one morning he came out and found his ford Company car was gone . It was later found somewhere in Kirby . Somebody was hot-rodding with it all night .He quickly discovered it was Not the same people that used to live there . He sold out as fast as he could and moved to North Wales . Everton Library is also a landmark that should be preserved . There are many other Landmarks that were lost like schools and Churches .All ostensibly in the name of Council DEVELOPMENT whereas today the freezing outside toilets we had could be considered as of heritage interest . Many of us saw no reason why Tommy whites should be demolished to become green fields . Ken and several of us who lived off Heyworth street , Everton Road and St Domingo Road went to the same Aintree School . Even the School has since been demolished . In Everton neighbourhoods the people influenced the atmosphere where we all lived . Some good and some not so good . The green Everton fields of today have not erased of our memories of what we experienced and this is assumably one of the contributory factors why we do not hesitate to place them on Kens website . Hope to see LTE 3 book from kEN in the near future and Peters Liverpool Lad 2 . Let us keep up the good work . We shall probably not see its like again .

Street Name:Copeland Street Street Number:58

Memory:Like Don Currie states nothing left of the old Everton. There are just a few buildings around St Georges Church.Everton Village gone,I worked in the village post office for many years in my teens. Its people and houses were Air- Brushed from Everton's history and replaced with walled green fields. Thanks to Ken Rogers that he is getting them to work as a park and having people involved planting wild flowers adding lots of colour and giving character so much so its beginning to now look like a park.So lets leave our memories recorded how we were proud Everton people and loved and enjoyed our childhood living in"Old Everton" Though we had no hot water, bathroom and in lots of houses no electricity.Jean Ellis 13/3/2018

Street Name:Priory Street Number:40

Memory:Alo Don I remember Eastlake street . A classmate from Heyworth Street School in 1955 named Lennie Hall lived there . It was a pity to see Everton turn into grass fields and so many thousand people relocated . It is no surprise many of us went global . I went back to Everton to visit in the 1970s upto 1990s . One could not avoid remembering what stood there before and the friends / relatives and residents one knew . Best regards to all LTE alan Man . Tuesday 13 Mar 2018

Street Name:Eastlake Street Number:9

Memory:I was at Heyworth Street Primary School from 1951 to 1954. Fell in love with Miss Bromilow, my first teacher. All the boys in love with Valerie Allen ("VA") a beautiful blonde girl in our class. Alas, Miss B. must be in her nineties if still alive, and VA 73. Took 11 plus in 1955 and got to Liverpool Collegiate with Roy McEwan also from Heyworth Street. Left Collegiate in 1962 and emigrated to Australia with family. Been back to Everton a few times since.Very sad to see area "gentrified" with no people, no shops, no soul. Who needs green fields when there is nobody to enjoy them, eh ?

Memory:Alo Steve good to hear from you again . Shaw street park sandstone walls with footholes - correct recollection . The big freshwater pool was in between them . That end of the park in the side street next to the collegiate school was a huge high sandstone mound with a building erected on the top . I believe at the end of 1950s if my memory serves me correctly the park was renamed EDINBURGH PARK . I remember one Saturday morning on black and white BBC TV there was a helicopter with a live camera showing the Park .Coincidentally I have a Sony camcorder recording of a Shaw street Orange Lodge 12 July procession in summer 1986 along with Everton Park and Heyworth Street .

Street Name:Newlands St Street Number:3

Memory:Hello Alan Bruce and all. Your post about Shaw street was this the same park where they had foot holes in the sandstone which as a lad my mates and I used to climb up to the top?. Regards Steve. 12/3 / 18

Street Name:PRIORY Street Number:40

Memory:Alo Jean I totally agree with you , Copeland street - I remember some lads more in my age group - Stan Smith lived in a house backing on to the Heyworth Street School alley and Colin Wright and his brother Malcolm ? lived across facing the oller at the bottom of the street opposite the school . many schoolmates lived on and near Everton Terrace before it was demolished for the new tennaments . We would all meet at the Everton Terrace Park and get dizzy on the roundabout before we went to Shaw street Park to get drenched at the pool in summer . It was a different world in those days and we all made do with what we had . Best regards to all Lte alan Man. Mon 12 March 2018
