Street Name:Cadmus Street Number:26

Memory:Hello Jean from Copeland street. Did you attend Heyworth street school? I was there from 1955-61. Our good LTE friend Alan Bruce sat a couple of desks away from me during those lovely days of young innocence, where we got the stick for looking sideways at the teachers. You would only have had to walk around the corner if you attended there. Names that come to mind are Terry Cahill, Peter Smith, Graham Waring (who went to Ozzie) Sharkey, who also came from Cadmus street, next to Breck road. In this world of haste and neglect, I find it a respite to think of the earlier times, as you say, bursting bubbles of tarmac on the side of the road, on a hot day of summer, a small bottle of Tizer to share with your mates. Sometimes we'd stick some melted tar on a long stick to fish out a coin from a street grid. As they always said, "don't count your money over a grid." Ha! Goodness to all LTE folk. Peter from Canada. 29/ 03/18

Memory:Hi Peter, Liverpool was the place to be this Winter while the rest of the Country had deep snow.Liverpool had very little.Cold but Sunny (and a drop of rain of course)Shows Liverpool People are special,we are protected by the Welsh Mountains and the Yorkshire Hills.When my friend and I mention were from Liverpool people step back,don't know whether it is in horror or reverence, like to think it's the last one!! As the song says,Were Simply the Best, Better than all the Rest. Talking of a cold house,we had 4 bedrooms each had a fire place no fire in them,so they would make the bedrooms cold. I remember my sister and I would lift the bed clothes up and breath rapidly to warm the bed up. We had the oven shelf wrapped up in a jumper at our feet and of course Dad's army over coat on top. We had lovely hot Summers. Always seemed to get melted tar on our clothes off the roads.To get it off butter was always recommended,wonder if using margarine also worked?

Street Name:Cadmus Street Number:26

Memory:Hiya LTE folks. I'm living over on the far coast of Canada, near Vancouver and we'e having a very mild winter, now Spring. I'm amazed to see the deep freeze you folks back home are going through, but, i do remember on my birthday Feb. 28th 1963, it may have been the coldest night in a century. Me and Geoff gently pulled off the large sheets of condensation ice from the inside of our bedroom, pushed open the window and threw the big pieces down into the street. One useless coal fire and a small gas one upstairs. That was it. We dressed up in double layers, socks, gloves and my balaclava, warmed out pillows in front of the fire, and leggit upstairs and dived in bed. When we four boys were little we were 'lucky enough' to all share a small double bed, two each end, and that helped us keep warm. Really cold house in Everton. All the best, Peter on the warm west coast of Canada.

From: Currie, Don

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 . Best regards to all LTE alan Man . 14 Mar 2018
