Memory:only just found out about this site. Lovely to see a couple of names I remember from my school days such as Irene King and Pauline Lawson. I went to St Georges Primary School then Lorraine Street school then onto Evered Grammar. Known either as Jean or Georgina Wiseman. I remember so many faces but sadly not all the names. I've lived in Australia for the last 34 years but so many fond memories of living around Everton, catching the bus to Evered School (no. 25). moved to Cantril Farm, Skelmersdale, Kirkby, Rainford before emigrating to Australia many years ago with my children. Have only been back once in 1982 and how things had changed then. Would love to visit again.

Memory:Alo Steve and Eric , good to read your posts again which are most appreciated as usual . Peter and I are only vintage 1950 . Born in Mill Road Hospital and in 1955 We were classmates at Heyworth Street Primary School so we only saw the aftermath left by the war and grew up in the gutter like many of us . Right on cue - It is amazing how a word or a name evokes / brings forth a detailed recollection from the past . The innocent Civilians always suffer the most in any war . My old feller told me about a Parachute coming down between Hamilton Road and Premier street and how they all went running towards it to see who it was . There was amazing SUDDEN BRAKES , SHRIEKS and a LIGHTNING U-TURN when they saw it was a MINE . Tragedy That poor lad that died from blood poisoning from a cut from a rusty Bike - Many of us lads also had many cuts from walking on rusty nails , broken glass bottles and more coming through our pumps . I lost a lot of blood down on Neddy Road . My cousin Eric was also treated in Myrtle street Hospital several times and had stitches . Those Tetanus Injections I had in the right buttock in the Royal Infirmary were like CEMENT and took my breath away . I liked the Merseybeats very much in the 1960s . Look forward to reading more of your interesting posts as usual Steve . Best Regards to all alan Manila Sat 19 Aug 2017

Memory:Hello Alan thought I had to reply right away to your post. Firstly let me thank you for my [ honour]title Think Eric who posted beats me to it age wise. You mentioned the 3 big houses in the street well the middle one was ours. Across the street lived the Williams family who had a tragic loss when the youngest who was only five I think, died of blood poisoning after cutting himself on a rusty bike. There other son Jamie, I believe when he grew up was a founder member of the Merseybeats under his real name James Aeron Williams till I believe something happened and he left. Eric mentions Mill road hospital being bombed well my cousin George Darc'y and my Aunt Edie had a lucky escape that night. Up until then they where both in the maternity ward as George had just been born when my Uncle Jim came home on maternity leave and because of the previous nights heavy bombing of the area took them home. That night all the mothers and babies in their ward perished.

Memory:Waiting for your next Book now Peter after reading 'Liverpool Lad'. Adam Cliff Day nursery was mentioned recently, and jogged some long forgotten memory for me. One of my earlier memories was being dropped off here in 1934 or thereabouts :( I can recall a line of small wash basins and learning how to wash our hands, clean our teeth. Got our chimney cleaned free of charge in 1941 by Adolf when a landmine hit Mill Rd Ozzie. Had rellies living in Ganges a while back Peter, on Saltspring. Visit East-Sooke from Montreal on occasion now. I wonder if any LTE members ever ventured into the world of Ballroom Dancing (?) by learninig the cadance of 'Slow...Slow...Quick.. Quick..Slow' at Ma Campbells Dance on Richmond Rd?. Thanks to all for input on this page...keep 'em coming.

Memory:Alo Steve - ( our elder brother) always good to hear from you and hope all is well with you and family . Newlands street - I recall walking along Poplar street in 1950s many times to pass Murray Hall and cross Breck road to your street . What clearly stands out in my memory were the big 3 floor houses with high front steps and long front gardens . In summer the sun shone very brightly on the west side and the green painted pram and bike shop at the top of the street looked so good . I would walk down Breck Road to Addisons to look in the window at the toys which we all could not afford . Malaya - yes I recall from late 1970s when it was not developed like today .Big rubber plantations have changed to Palm Oil Trees . The chilli crab and fresh fisch at Port Kelang Pier tasted so good . Actually I am in Manila this month . I shall be back in Thailand next week and then off upto Hong Kong . Weather is hotter than usual and air humidity is in the high 90%s these days in asean . Not like it used to be as an unpolluted Tropical garden Paradise in the south down to Indonesia . Sorry to hear about your best army mate . Pity he could not return with you . Look forward to your posts as usual . best regards to all LTE alan Man . Fri.18 Aug 2017

Memory:Hello again Alan Bruce. Yes as mentioned by most folk your memory is amazing. When you post it always reminds me of where you now live in Thailand it always brings back happy memories because as I have told you I served on active service in Malaya [ Malaysia as it is now ]which has a border with Thailand. I always thought I would return one day with my best mate who also served there with me, but it was not to be as he passed away before we could return. Best wishes Steve.

Memory:Hiya Alan, Peter Codd and Eric Skean. Greetings from the West Coast of Canada, presently suffering the worst forest fires in local history. I don't remember such a drought as this on Everton Road. But I do remember lighting small fires in bombed houses after school in the '50s, and passing around the Woodies. My book is available as an ebook in U.K. But a hard-copy is too expensive to send in the mail. Alan, I also remember the unique flavour of the orange juice at Plumpton Street Nursery. Does anyone in the LTE community remember contributing a painting for the children's exhibit at the Walker Art Gallery in 1955 ? I put in two pictures. One of a helicopter and another of Bimbo the cartoon character, running away from a cop with a bag of gold coins over his shoulder. My proud mother said there was a picture of me in the Echo that night. It got lost in the move to Australia in Dec. '66. I missed Liverpool so much when the family immigrated, but my memories of the early days is still very vivid: almost uncanny. Alan Bruce has incredible memory cells. Opposite the nursery was the Mill Road Clinic, as you said Alan, where we all got our polio shots, and a sweet as we left. Alan, you also mentioned some classmate's names. Derek Taylor was a good pal, and his dad, I think, was a postman. Derek bragged to us lot one day, that his dad made ten quid a week, and we all went "Auugghh! Wow!" Big dough in those days. I started my electrical apprenticeship in Aug. '66 and cleared five meager pounds for a forty four hour week. Half day on Saturday. I made better money as a part-time butcher-boy from 14 - 16 years old at St John's Market and Wavertree Road, and also got free, left over meat. Good health to all the LTE folk. We may be getting on, but we're still bright as buttons and we don't need a computer to do our sums. Our hand writing is also still beautiful and legible, not like today's world. Cheers, Peter, a Liverpool Lad, catching fish in Canada.

Memory:Alo Steve - good to hear from you again .I remember the Lytton Picture House from 1950s . It was one of the first to close down . That Health centre on the corner of Mill Road opposite the Adam Cliff day nursery at the top of Plumpton street was still standing in 1970s and believe it is still there today if I am not mistaken . That Orange Juice cordial they gave us had a really exquisite taste . Pity Never seen its likes any more .
