Wow donno, it really is a small world, I lived in Tees Street from 1958 until 1994 when they decided to pull it down. In fact, I appeared in the 1985 TV Eye documentary "Tees Street Isn't Working". I have some great childhood memories of Teeog (as we used to call it). I can even remember the fights with sticks and stones, we used to have with the Ilchester Square mob but no idea what they were over! But mostly they were good memories. It annoys me that the Council, in their infinite wisdom, decided to turn it into a cark park! I tell you, mate, if someone built a time machine and offered me a one way ticket back to my childhood on Tees Street, I'd accept it in a heartbeat!

However, getting back to Charlie Wright, I admire the guy for sticking it out this long. I call his house "The Little House on the Prairie".

Yes Dave2745. I'd go back to "teeog" (as we also called it that too) any day. It was a street were everyone watched out for each other and looked after each other. If i came home from school and no one was home i could easily let my self in. If i couldn't be bothered walking round back to the open back door (every one left theres open). I just put my arm through letter box and key was there hanging on string (same as most homes in the street). We moved there about 1973 and left just after the TV eye documentary.

I'm guessing you lived down bottom end nearer murphys. I was top end by green box.

I parked on that car park last week and tried to park on exact spot were my house used to be Lol.

Charlie was and still is a legend.

Planning permission has been put in to demolish the supporting empty houses either side of Charlie Wright's and make good his house https://planning.wirral.gov.uk/onli...WIRRA_DCAPR_106625&activeTab=summary in advance of them building new houses around him.

Workers were there today.

2001 I think, only 18 years but seems longer, the other side of the road was knocked down earlier, around 1995.
