|Message||i love the pictures|
After trawling hundreds of pic's of Old L'pool what a wonderful surprise to find a photo of the actual house my Dad was born in in 1916 - 88 Celt St. As far as is poss from this distance I've tried to ensure there had been no change to Street Numbers between 1916 & the date the photo was taken (1960s/70s going by the TV aerial). While Celt St clearly was later truncated by the urban renewals your photographer had done his good work in the nick of time.
Our family emigrated to NZ in 1920 & we had no photos of their lives in the UK prior to departing. We know the previous generation lived in Hockenhall Alley which was also cleared in the slum clearances after WWII. Am keeping an eye out for any photos of housing in that location too (have copies involving the one surviving pre-1900 building-all there is to date.) All this inspired by the Dickensian conditions our family must have lived through in the mid-1800s - emigrants from Ireland were at the very bottom of the social heap in those times. Great work & all strength to your hand!

|Message||My Great-Grandfather was a foreman in the factory and he also had one of the houses in the village. The address was then 4, Hartley's Villa's, but when I go on google earth, it takes me to a different address!!! My Grandmother was married from this address in October 1929 and her father, John Flanagan is listed on the marriage certificate as Foreman, Preserve Factory. So I was really pleased to find this site.|
