Well lane gardens

Postby Llamedos77 » Wed Jul 25, 2018 9:15 pm

Hi everyone my name is Rob, I have lived in liverpool for 20 yrs, my wife has lived in Bootle all her life in well lane gardens. We both love looking at old photos of Bootle and liverpool and what we are looking for is photos of well lane gardens just off well lane opposite the tannery.

We love seeing photos of Derby park with the lake and how amazing it looked back in the day. We show our children photos of then and now to give them perspective of Bootle history :)

Any hints or pointers or photos would be amazing thanks :)

Welcome to the forum Rob. There are loads of photos of Bootle from yesteryear, courtesy of Fat boy Joe, Bernie, Bob and many others too numerous to mention. You may also want to join the Bootle and Sefton Facebook group, tons of nostalgia on that site, just ask to be added.

Hi Rob, welcome. Will your wife remember Mary and Ronnie Crossley from Well Lane Gardens? (#14 right on the very end) they lived there for many years until about 1990 when they moved to Balliol House at the top of Fernhill Road. She had a sister that lived in Well Lane too.

I'll certainly ask her in the morning but if she doesn't know her mum will. :)

On the list of names showing the residents of well lane, my Nan was Mrs M O’keeffe, I also knew Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Sheehan, on the second list it has Mrs Dorothy O’keeffe, that was a mistake, as my Nan moved in in 1938.

The second list is 1949
the directory has not listed the 1938 numbers
of the new houses only the tannery side

It was good to see familiar names from Well Lane and surrounding areas. In the late 60s, I lived in Little Brookhill Road and was a keen motorcycle mechanic. I recall going round to Charlie Caffrey's house to tune up his BSA C15 250 cc motorbike, which was running a bit rough. Happy days. Walshy.
