Mill Lane is off Hawthorne Road - next left after Park Street as you travel away from town (although a bit of it, not the bit in this pic, goes right as well - as far as Gloucester Road).

Bob

I don't think that's a little girl - just the way the washing is hanging???

You can see the shadow of buildings from the left side of the street (possibly the gable end of the proprty on Hawthorne??) but haven't a clue about the chimney.

A great photo

Do you know if the houses in Hemer Terrace and Lambs Terrace would have been similar between 1927 and 1929?

Sure Billy and Ann Shacklady lived in 1 Mill Lane. That would be where the two people are outside. Jeez, memories coming flooding back now. :)

Thanks Bobhamo

It was my grandparents who lived at that address.

Ive googled Luke Hemer as Id never heard his name before and can see the details of him being a shipwright, he must have been pretty well known in the Bootle area to have had a street named after him.

Thanks again for that information

hi gang, the cottages where still standing when I was young, the shadow is the back entrance to the barrack's of the 40-41st tank regiment. the lady standing outside the second house was a distant relation to my grand-mother. as a matter of interest I remember seeing Montgomery riding on top of a tank traveling up park street around 1948 regards billy..

The row of cottages where the little girl is,
the back of them led onto the bank and the Barracks,
and into Dorset street,
the cottage was occupied by the Kerwin family,
at the bottom of the other row of terraced houses
was Pawsons dairy and the Lead works in little Brookhill road.
At the end of the cottages there was a jigger that we could just squeeze
through that lead to a space at the back of the cottages on the bank,
with another jigger that was in between the houses in Dorset street and Little Brookhill that led to another jigger
and the back of the houses in Waterworks Street..

Billy gooner they bring back memories, for me

Cheers Bill Tomo,,
