Title: Old photos of Liverpool
Post by: TonyS on Friday 27 June 08 22:17 BST (UK)
Here's a few images, taken from my meagre collection of RP postcards.

Anfield Road School 1915 - on the back of this card it says: "W.E.Jones, front row, 3rd from right - died 1998".

Newark Street, off County Road - c.1909

Stanley Park - 1904

Anfield Road, Liverpool 4

The final image can also be viewed on the  Liverpool Street Gallery (http://www.liverpoolstreetgallery.com/) website.
An article about this project will appear in the Daily Post on Monday 30th June.
We are still looking for contributors, so if you have a camera or some old pictures of Liverpool, why not post them on the website.


See you,

Tony

Hi Tonys, what a wonderfull web site you have. Do you think it might be worth trying to put your school picture on Friends-reunited site as some one might be looking for a school photo back then?

Hi Tonys

Great pictures and website - one suggestion though - ask a mod to move it to the Lancashire Resource forum, if left here it will just drop off the page in a couple of weeks, in the Resource forum it will stay put for a very long time.

Thanks for your comments.
Ken, I will ask for the post to be moved to the Lancs Resource Forum.
Migky, I'm not too keen on posting my images on a commercial website, especially when I have to pay for the privilege.

The Daily Post have just published a 2-page centre spread about the LiverpoolStreetGallery project :
