Memory:Yes Sandra you're right all those people have gone but are not forgotten.I miss them all so much especially Tom but I just remember all the laughs we shared and it makes it all alright again. But always remember we've still got each other. We are the old ones now, the ones to tell the stories,and they are funny.Kids today couldn't get away with the same things we got away with, they'd get locked up. Tom always said our Albert would go far and low and behold he got a job on the buses, he must've gone miles and miles.

Kevan you and I share very happy memories that no-one can take away, even though most of the people we loved most have gone x

Street Name:Carlos st Street Number:12

Memory:This was a very happy time for me I lived at 12 Caros st with my mother Sandra father Jimmy and sister Della. I was born in 1961 and I am the nephew of Sandra Johnson Kearns, formerly Sandra Murray. Sandra and I where so close she was more like a sister than an aunt. We where like Bonnie & Clyde. She was always in charge and any mischief we got up to It was always me who always copped the flack and she was nowhere to be found. I was always at my nan and grandads Lilly & Tommy. I was my mans favourite and she always called me her little soldier. I also attended St. Georges school, but unfortunately for me I had to attend 12 months early because sa Nora wouldn't stay in school without me and kept running away. She once folded me up in a pushchair and left me in St. Georges churchyard until after dark when I was found. For a four year old it was very frightening but Sandra thought it was hilarious. That was just one of many incidents she was responsible for. Like the time she she pushed me down our st in a peddle car and let me go.Now anyone who lived on or around St. Georges Hill will remember just how steep it was, and how fast that peddle car would be going.Very scary,I didn't stop until I crashed into the Jon Bagot hospital wall at the bottom of our st. Although she used to get me into so much trouble for me they are precious memories of a bygone age and a time I wish I could revisit. Very happy times.

Street Name:Cadmus Street Number:26

Memory:Hello Jean, thanks for your post. The gas and 'leccy meters were the first things hit on break-in, even through the coal cellar. I remember the meter man coming by, once a month, and counting the shillings on the table, adding up the figures and always giving my mum a rebate. Coins flying quickly under his hands. I wrote that down in my memoir, 'Liverpool Lad' (Adventure growing up in post-war Liverpool) which I put out in April '16. Many of us have so many memories of the old district. A few of us have them in print. Our early days in Everton seems to have branded a permanent sort of enderment upon so many of us. We often speak of those early days with reverence, observance and happiness. We learned a lot from those days that set us in stead for our later adult developments. My folks were from Kirkdale and Walton, and settled in Everton from 1943 to '61 when the Exodus was in full swing. We ended up in Childwall Valley. Take care love, and good health to all LTE folk. Peter. April 11th '18

Memory:Hi Peter, Yes I did attend Heyworth Street School, a little before your time.Had no excuse for being late did I Ten paces and I was in the school yard. Your memories about tar on the end of a long pole, I had forgotten about.The side of the Grocers shop on Heyworth Street top of Copeland there was a very large grid all open lattice pattern many the time a group of us fished there looking for money, can,t remember having any luck but it was the excitement of may be a silver coin or even a penny that kept us there so long. Reading about Don Currie's Mum lowering him down the coal grid because they where locked out of their home.Made me smile. Lowering him down by both arms stretched above his head,neighbours peeping behind lace curtains wondering whats going on! Is it a punishment for Don, sticking him down the grid? Makes you think how many burglaries there where accessed by the coal grids in those days. It was the pennies in the gas meter they were after The house holder had to pay for any damage to the meter plus the money stolen. Kind regards from Jean Ellis. 10/4/2018
