Can anyone help with some pictures of Oliver Street, say 40's to 50's? My mother in law lived there and found out my mum lived around the corner near to the Garroch (spelt right?) Snug around the same time.

Many thanks and would love to see what ya got?

If anyone could show pictures of Oliver Street or the surrounding area would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance

Oliver st was/is parallel to Grange rd and roughly the same length - may be best if you put a house number so we can see what part you are after.
There are pics of St Johns school in the Grange rd topic and in the pubs section the Firemans Arms, Combermere and Little Brown Jug all in Oliver st.

Having spoke with my mother in law she lived at number 129 Oliver Street, nowadays it would be near or close to the British Heart Foundation shop or close to Milton Pavement?

Hope this helps?

Could you give me a link to the thread to which you refer?

Hi all. I used to live around the corner in "Claughton" Road and remember "Oliver" Street well, next to the "Brown Jug" public house was a childrens playground, on the left of that Was a very narrow street called "Back Oliver Place" (Cobbled Street ) when you came out of "Back Oliver Place" and walked down to Oliver Street itself, their Was a Chippie owned by Mrs "Rossi's", further up Was a Carter Buisness who rented Handcarts, everyone used to move furniture by handcart then, ( no stigma in them days ) after that was the "Wirral Boxing Club", situated behind the "Queens" working mans social club ( men only ) then their was the rear of the "Ritz" Picture House, with The "Firemans Arms" public house nussled in the back of it, still standing, still serving beer. bless em, at the other end of "Oliver" Street was The "Combermere Hotel" public house, then five or six reidential houses then their was "Senars" engineering co., they first kicked of in a corrugated little premise here. "St. Johns" Primary School C/E was next, Oh! by the way the vicar at the time of "St.Johns" Primary School and "St.Johns" Church, situated in "Huskisson" Street was the Rev. "Albert Howarth" who was from "Bolton",( and wore clogs! ) this was in 1951 onwards, incidently I started school at the age of 4 years of age at St Johns School. St.John Street separated Oliver Street incorporating "The Garrick Snug" public house, on continuation of "Oliver" Street, were streets named after Mediterranean countries, "Cyprus" Street, and "Malta" Street to name but two. at the top of "Oliver" Street near to Charing Cross was "Hardings" Co. Coaches. I am sorry if my reply seems long winded..... but you came across, as very interested in your quest for local knowledge of "Oliver" Street, sorry I can't help with the pictures, I to would dearly love to see them like you, but I can only give you the pictures in my Memory, of the neibourhood, I loved and grew up in. I do hope it helps. smile
