I went out with a girl from there back in the mid to late '60's she would not let me come and get her or take her home, she said I would get done over. I met her brother sometime later and he said that I was "aright" and that if anybody tried to give me a hard time too mention his name. Name forgotten. I also had another girlfriend who worked at a clothes factory up the North End, name forgotten but they had a very large staff.

I was born in Alwen st in the north end in 1945.The photo of the dock cottages and the partially built Ilchester Square (the square)as everybody called it,I think was taken from Ilchester Road.The street at the bottom of the photo would be Ribble Street.I dont know when the square was built but I think it was built in two stages the top half was always known as the new square the entrance was at the church end down along Ilcchester Road.the old square ran along Tyrer St at the bottom as well as the Blood Tub there was a row of shops under the Iremember a grocers and a chippy.when I was a kid the square was the best place in the world. My heart is still in the north end!

I'm lead to believe that the Arch you see in the picture,
St James Church would be behind you.

So you would be looking towards Wallasey now, and the Train Station.
