         If you go onto the 'Britshpathe' web site and type in 'Liverpool slums' then click on                                                                        'Liverpool 1974'.

     After a few seconds  you will see footage filmed from a car, starting from the bottom of        Pugin Street. You briefly see Mrs Browns sweet shop ( boarded up ) plus part of Teulon  Street infants school. Then the footage  starts again, from the top of Pugin Street travelling                                                                  down the street.

            You can see the rear of the Orange lodge practise hall in Cockerell Street, but                                                            Moiras sweet shop has been demolished. 

                                             This is how things were beginning to look.

                                          Moira's sweet shop (in Cockerell Street) 1970

                Some people might remember this shop being known as Lil's or Jeans

   This shop was also previously run by a Mr Green who had been a POW to the Japanese.

   In the Britishpathe footage Moira's is no longer there, but the rear of the Orange lodge                                                                  hall can still be seen

            This is Pugin Street from 1970. ( The houses on the left are Cockerell Street )

    The waste ground in this picture is a legacy from the blitz. In the Britishpathe footage                           most of the houses beyond the parked car have been demolished .

This web site is only going to be of interest to anyone who lived in Teulon Street, or who                                     lived in nearby streets and went to Teulon Street school.

                             So i have added a few photographs of surrounding streets

                               The Tintern Abbey above and the Penrhyn Castle below
       The shop next to the Penrhyn was called Clitheroes ( I think ) but was just called

        I would say that this photo was taken from a top window on Walton Road.                       Somewhere between the Fountains Abbey pub and Furness Street.

     Fountains Road houses to the left ( You can see the same 'hall to hall' front   doorways as in the previous picture ) with Woodhouse Street on the immediate                                                                            right.

Wyatt Street would be top centre mixed up in all the debris. The high up chimney                                          would be from a Walton Road shop.

                 Also the street lighting would almost certainly be Walton Road

     If you continue watching the pathe footage from 1974, after 2.25 minutes you

    see film from this area, panning from Fountains Road around to Wyatt Street

                                                               Kirkstall Street 1976

Should say 1951

   Teulon Street County Primary school was renamed

                      Eileen Craven Primary school

Tommy Tripp and David Dewhurst at Alsop. Usually boys from Teulon Street would go to this school, but now, because the streets were due to be demolished most of my class went to John Hamilton Comprehensive                                                          in Everton

 This telegram was sent to our house on 27th of December 1974 for my brother Harry to                                     go to sea. When he returned Teulon Street was gone.

    Most people were moved to one of the new housing estates in the Everton area, some            moved as far as Skelmersdale. In March 1975 we moved by Walton Hall Avenue

       This picture is from about 1975. The school was now surrounded by wasteland                               although the house in the background is still there today                                                                                    ( Number 1 Florence Street )

               This map was published in the early 1980's but is from 1975. A few houses left. 
   ( including our house No 62 ) The council were now finishing off what Hitler had started
                                      The 3 photographs below are from 27th June 1981

          Eventually, about 2 decades later, new houses were built around the school.

                                         Some of the old street names were retained.


This map from the 1990's shows the school surounded by new housing, although the open         air theatre ( highlighted in red ) in Stanley Park was knocked down in the early 1970's




           Teulon Street school closed on 27th August 1997

                                 On the same day, after a short illness, my mum died 

                     The footage below was taken by Alan Poole 

                    The young girl in the pram is Alans daughter                 

                              The school was demolished shortly after this. 

          New houses have now been built on this site. The estate has been named after Miss Craven

                               This aerial photo shows the Craven Park estate near to completion.

                                                  Teulon Street is marked out roughly in red

This Christmas decoration was made in Teulon Street school by our David and has                                              been hung out at Christmas for 50 years.

                 Where was Walton Hall

      All maps of Walton Hall all differ slightly so i have used the above map as it shows                      the entrance to the hall jutting out (as shown in the picture below)
Walton Hall Liverpool

        This picture is from a web site which fuses maps from now and then.                   Although the old map has Walton Hall demolished and only the out

                                     buildings and walled garden remain

  Give or take a few yards. The corner stone for the hall would be near the                                     centre of the middle bowling green

I would imagine that the 300 year old ice house is still there...Buried

                         A Kirkdale Tragedy

                                Wyatt Street

                              07th June 1887

Wyatt Street, Liverpool
Kirkdale Murder
                               This post blitz map has number 62 highlighted in red.
One last Teulon Street footnote. The large building at the bottom of Wyatt Street on this map was where the school dinners were prepared for Teulon Street school as the school       had no kitchens. I only ever had dinner their a few times but can still remember a               circular scoop of cold tasteless mash and i think rhubarb pudding ( not together ).
                                                         Choice of drink was water
Wyatt Street, Kirkdale
                            Wyatt Street. Number 62 would be where the car is parked
