Hello,

In this World in Action Part Three video about Birkenhead there is a comment re. 6th and 8th avenue on the Ford Estate (My mate lived on the Ford (6 Ave) and I remember walking to the 8th Ave (where these flats were - 1 min 10 seconds) to a shop around 1984/85, I was around 14 or 15).

On Google Maps I only see avenues 1st to 5th. Was there a renovation scheme on the Ford Estate where they demolished the 6th to 8th avenues?

Thanks.

God help us,
Come yourself,
Don't send Jesus,
This is no place for children.
