Ta Jetjockey. We lived at 80 Keats Street, my grandparents lived at number 4. I've been there since and it is always a great disappointment to see the houses gone. They were lived in by good, honest, upright people who had little money but lots of pride in their surroundings. The steps were scrubbed and the edges whitened. Mum would wash the whole pavement area outside the house and then go on to do the pavements of elderly neighbours. As a kid, I'd run messages for Lilla Jones or Daisy Bell and get a threepenny bit if I was lucky. Keats Street and Hood Street were 'play streets' so we could run around and roller skate in the street without getting run over. The only person I knew in Hood Street was a classmate of mine in Gray Street School - Harold Slater.

Small world indeed. My grandparents lived in Keats Street at number 4 before the war and it survived a bomb dropped on the house at the back in Moore Street. They lived there until 1964 and my Nan died in the front room.

Good for Harry. I like Airedales. I remember a lanky guy, usually with a bandaged knee, and much better than me at sport.

I was very sad indeed to come back one year to find the street 9/10ths demolished. I suppose, realistically, they were incapable of being 'up-graded'. No inside toilet, no bathroom, walk straight from the street into the front room. When we were living there, we never felt in the least bit deprived - it was what we had grown up with - but it was poor accommodation. I'm sure it was privately-owned. I remember the rent man with his leather satchel.

Ian most of those streets were owned /built by William Jones there has been another thread covering him on the site I remember going to the office on the corner of Irlam Road and Marsh lane it was then known as the Exors of William Jones and you could pay the rent there it was like walking into Scrooge's office the clerk i remember had a deformed hand and held his old pen what appeared to me at the time awkwardly of course I know better now but funny the things you remember

Hi Jackie are you talking about the wide entry between Grey Street and Hood Street which had cobble stones if so I remember that garage well one person who had it had an old blue Austin Taxi which I came home from hospital in after having my tonsils out that would be late forties/early fifties when did you live there?

You're right John it was Costigans, I remember when John Frankland
was an order boy there, my Mother lived in the flat above at the time
I was born. She always shopped at the Co Op, corner of Tennyson,
but her 'big' shop was the Co Op on Knowsley Road.

Ah, that debbry between Keats Street and Hood Street. Many a bonfire there and a source of wildlife which would astound many naturalists. When looking at a perfectly innocent earthworm, I was assured that it was undoubtedly a 'bloodsucker'. We gazed, aghast, at this diminutive but deadly beast! Just think, I might have picked it up!!

Ollies were also good there.
