I grew up in the tenements of netherfield road, remember the the lovely McBride family of the Europa pub on Scottie road, it was next door to where cilla lived.
Cassy market, we took a bundle of clothes and laid them down on the floor and people would rummage through them, picking out an old suit jacket, trying it on and giving me sister four bob for it. Old washer women doing their daily chores, strange to think now, that a lot of them were victorians. Has anybody read Michael Turners 'rough n tumble days', I think its set in Liverpool 6, gritty and course, but gives a true edge to life in the slum clearance times. Does it all still exist in another dimension, like McKenzie in his pyramid shaped time capsule, who knows.
