In a city living 3 When my first two books were available at launches and other events, one of the most asked questions was 'Do your books have any pictures of so and so?' and 'Do they contain any information on such and such?'
To meet the demands and aims of these requests, it was decided to create a definitive record of the 50+ inter-war tenement developments that were so prevalent throughout the city from Kirkdale in the north to Speke in the south with those in between at such places as Everton, Edge Hill, Club Moor, Old Swan, Wavertree, Toxteth and Dingle.
Learn about some of the most influential figures in Liverpool's history when it comes to sanitation, road layouts, new town developments and corporation housing. Find out what existed in the locality before your tenement block and when it was built. See the European influences from Vienna and Berlin.
Together with another 167 photographs, the vast majority never before published, book No.3 subtitled - The Tenements is a must read from whatever part of the city was your stomping ground. Recall too, many of the games that were played from dawn until dusk in those heady days of never ending summer holidays when the tarmac bubbled and nothing was nicer than a Pendleton's twicer.
This book was finally completed and launched on Friday 1st December 06 at the Scouse Italian reunion night organised by Ron Formby of the Scottie press and featuring a revamped screening of Paul Sudbury's Gardens of Stone.
