OUR LADY OF RECONCILIATION WAR MEMORIAL>

PHOTOGRAPHS

Added below are photographs of the area close to the church, some old, some new. I hope this gives you an idea of what the area was like, and how it has changed through the years.

 I would like to Thank Liverpool Records Office, Liverpool Libraries for giving me permission to use photographs from their collection. This has allowed me the opportunity to show the many changes within the area. Under each photograph is a reference, anyone wanting to view the original photographs at the records office should quote these references at the records office. A link to the Liverpool Records Office, Liverpool Libraries, and Port Cities Liverpool( where photographs can be viewed/searched) can be found on the home page.

Also many thanks to Ged Fagan, for his input and help with photographs. Ged has allowed the use of photographs from his Inacityliving web site. Ownership of the photographs can be viewed by visiting the site, a link is provided on the home page.

  The following document is courtesy of Liverpool Records Office. It is a recording of Gildart's gardens dated 1883. The writer seems more interested in the Goat and the Chickens than he does for any human occupants. He fails to grasp the point that nobody would have chose to live in these conditions, some had no option. Thankfully others would report the need to replace the terrible housing, and improve conditions.
