I've been researching the Bristow and Waterhouse families in Liverpool for ages and had the street addresses for Sebastian Waterhouse and his family in the 1840s and 1850s. They apparently lived at 13 Percy Street and then built a larger house at 14 (I think) Catharine Street, but I didn't know the suburb - only that it was Liverpool. Someone on the RootsWeb Liverpool List has just drawn my attention to this site - what a find!! Could someone tell me if 13 Percy Street and 14 Catharine Street still exist?

Nice site, I found it while trying to find information on My Family history. I know that my grandfathers family came from the area during the mid to late 1800's. He died when is was a young boy in the early 1970's. No one was sure of his age, except that he was around 100 years old. I do know that he had a large family, lots of brothers, and some of them returned to England. One of his brothers was named George, after their grandfather. Any information on the Canning Family history would be very helpfull. Sincerly James M Canning

Hello, my family lived in 60 Falkner Street many years ago ie 1915- 35 approx. The interior was recently featured in David Copperfield. My g. Uncle had a radio shop on the corner of Falkner st and Little St. Bride st. My G grandmother married Charlie Melville who had a chip shop nearby. I'd love to find out more history.

If anyone is interested, that house with the curved wall on the corner of Bedford Street South and Canning Street is for sale. It is owned by the City Council and is for sale under their 'Degeneration' strategy. It is infested with rats, unfortunately. Despite numerous complaints from residents to the Council, nothing has been done about it. Does anyone know what's happening to the courts down the hill on Duke Steet? Whilst the well-off lived in Canning, poor people lived in courts, of which the last survivng examples are off Duke Street. In view of the Council's poor record on demolishing Georgian buildings, it is rather worrying that before they were hidden behind advertising hoardings, the roof had been removed and the end wall demolished.

My name is Tonii, I moved onto Bedford street at the age of four, then moved again at 5 but still on bedford street. at 6 I moved on to that corner house of Canning street and bedford street that was pictured. the corner bedroom in that house has a cool rounded wall inside. I left that house when I was 10, I now live in the Salt Lake City Utah, USA. It was cool and interesting to visit my old home, where I spent many years causing trouble. And mum if you read this we caused alot of trouble. One more thing I have a scar on my head from splitting it open in Falkner square and a scar on my knee from splitting in the park over by the school.

This is the most wonderful web site! I have just returned to the USA from Liverpool while studying my family tree. My great, great grandfather and family lived at 46 Canning Street. I obtained lots of photos of the area, but it was most helpful to get more history. I visited Albert Street/Elm Grove and lots of other places, but nothing original stood there. I would be so happy if you expanded this site to cover more streets in this area (Everton Road) - late 1800's, etc. Again, what a great historical site.

I was born and brought up in St. Bride's St. my Mother and Father were married in St. Bride's church and my sisters and I were all baptised there. We left the area over 30 years ago and moved to Runcorn. It was great to read about all the familiar places. I well remember learning to skate at the Ritz skating ring. One memory that stays in my mind was carrying my record player along Catherine St. to St. Bride's youth club so we could play a record by a local group who were doing well (you can guess the Beatles!!)My first drink was in the Blackburn pub on Catherine St. All memories brought back by your site. One last piece of information several years ago quite by accident my husband and I were talking to the husband of a colleague of mine about were I had lived in Liverpool. His name was Bob Williams, the son of a vicar in Anglesey he told us that his great grandfather had built Catherine St. and had named if after his Mother. It's a small world isn't it? Keep up the good work

As a french scouser( mum's a scouser, dad's a frog), i loved the site, i went back to liverpool in 1998 to live there, start a band, and i did. it was called Shrodinger's Cat, Then Loci. we played the hub cafe, brians dinner, but more important, we used to rehearse in a council flat, at 42 falkner street( and the pictures on the web site, reminded me of those days it was great and ridiculous, it was too small, for a full band but we loved it. We recorded an Ep at the liverpool music house. since summer 2000 i am back in France, Nice, more precisely, i miss liverpool, specialy the warmth of the scousers, the night life, the music scene which is incredible. The site brought back memeories, and i've just booked a ticket on easyjet to come back for a week. pierre-jean Buissieres

Look at the house numbers on Catharine Street (opposite the Blackburne). They go 9, 11, 11a, 15. I think this is through superstition - nobody wants to live in No. 13.As to the estate on Sandon Street / Sir Howard's Way, does anybody know what was there before? Even better, have you got any photographs or memories?

Why it was allowed to be built? what was there originally? war damage site?Thirdly, whilst walking along Sandon street the other day i noticed that the house numbers were something like 9/11/11a/15 but 9 nd 11 seemed like one house whilst 11a was another separate house on its own. HOw can this happen?Cheers for ya help!!

Dear Andy, This latest development seems a bit poor! Considering that your site is easily better than any of the official sites I think it would be appropriate for certain bodies to cough up all or some of the questioned £150, which is a paltry sum to pay for such a well-designed and well-maintained web-site that is a brilliant advertisement for the City of Liverpool!  Merseyworld itself. Yours is a site that enhances their regional coverage, and a good advert for them to anyone thinking of using them as an ISP.  Liverpool City Council- again, a brilliant advert for the city. Their own ham-fisted site relies too much on the footy-Beatles clichés.  Mersey Tourism. As above.  Liverpool Architecture and Design Trust. As above. They also referred to Canning Street as ‘Canning Road’ on their web-site!  Canning Area Action Group. This Group gets funding from somewhere. Europe? The Council? It would be well spent keeping this site alive.  The so-called ‘Residents Association’ in Canning Street. In 15 years of living there, all I know is that it is this shady group that ‘gives permission’ for us to be kept out of our own street and suffer gunfire under our windows at 4.00am when film companies choose to visit. Presumably they get to keep all the ‘disturbance allowances’ that are never paid to the people who actually put up with the inconvenience. They could find £150 in their petty cash!  As above, the Council’s ‘Film Development Office’. Your site probably attracts more film and TV companies to use (and pay for) local facilities than anything they do, and they’re paid to do this!  You could have a raffle or an appeal. I’d bung you a fiver!

Dear All, After almost three years and nearly 10,000 visitors, it looks like this site will soon be closing. Up till now, it has been hosted free by Merseyworld, but today I have received an invoice for £150. Since this site is all my own work, and carries no advertising or sponsorship of any kind, I cannot afford to subsidise it. If Merseyworld will not agree to waive the charge, this site will ahve to close. I'd like to thank the people who have taken the time to add to this guest book, and to email me with suggestions and comments.

For a bit of a laugh, visitors to this splendid site might wish to visit the Liverpool City Council’s own ‘Gold Zone’ web-site which is, presumably, some kind of postmodernist practical joke. Apparently, the stinking squalor just down the hill from Canning Street is an ‘improvement’ on the busy, vibrant, diverse area it was only a few years ago. If you too are outraged at the degeneration and insulted by the fantasy peddled in the flashy brochures and ‘shockwave’ web-sites, pop into their guestbook and have your say! http://www.liverpool.gov.uk/goldzone/guestbook.html

To Clifford70@btinternet.com hiya cliff sometime,ago at the liverpool garden festival in the dingle there was av ery good statue of JOHN LENNON titeld the working class hero it stood alongside the yellow submarine this was avery good statue by a local craftsman to prove his skills ,but he was ignored in favor of the rubbish we now have in the caven area, the same craftsman did the bust of CAPT J WALKER which now resides in the western approches mock up, he was also the craftsman who came up with the idea of the statue bigger than life size for the pier,head he didnt get a look in in either of those commissions. its acase of who you 'know' and i always thought liverpool supported its own ,by the way the J LENNON statue is now owned by BILL WYMAN of the rolling stones, sorry to be long winded with this but i had to prove we truly have the skills in the pool that should be given oportunities. fore ever a SCOUSCE JOHN

I was a student at the poly at the end of the seventies/early eighties and for a while lived on the corner of Catharine Street and Canning Street.Your site brings back lots of happy memories. If my memory still works and that white house that was a drinking club is about 100 yards down on the left from Canning St. as your going towards Upper Parly, then it was the Polish Club. A strange place that they didn't normally let you in to. My ex was half Polish though but it wasn't worth the hassle from lonely old Polish drunks with a tendency towards threats. Martin Brimble.

I think your web pages are marvelous.I was born in Liverpool and have lived here all my life. I lived in Catherine Street and Canning(77) for 7 years, attending art school and continued to paint there.This I always thought of as "Little Paris", the Bateau Lavoire/Monmartre of Liverpool.I miss the place terribly and completely agree with the comment about the block of flats on Catherine/Canning Street,How could they allow this to happen? (Bloody Vultures), unfortunately things will be (and are) getting worse in the City of John Moores... erm I mean Liverpool. I also agree with your comments about public art....The womens hospital on Upper Parliment Street is not only disasterously ugly (I'll give it another ten years before it develops major structural problems..I was there when it was built ... took about ten minutes) but it also sports an equally gross sickly fantasy art meets Tony Hancockesque sculpture of a scantily clad, ripped barbarian type clothing,page 3 model with erect nipples and a head that is about 3 times too big. This apparantly is The Madonna and Child. If one wants to portray realism, at least finish it. Again the Moores statue in Church Street, not bad proportion but looks like a cheap plastic toy soldier come out of a bad mould-no finishing .....John Lennon Sculpture, Clayton Square.. no comment. Where do the council get these people from and why? Public Art should be commisioned by EDUCATED people not egotists no wonder Liverpool gets no attention from the real art world, until something is done about this we will be a laughing stock. The suitcases -great. War memorial-great. museum/walker sculptures-great. Are there any decent painters here?-yes lots but they are ignored.Please no more Beatles exhibitions full of amateur opportunists waiting for tourists and Echo photographers. Lets see more galleries like the Ainscough/Merkmal and less of the Academy/Kwik Save

An ingratiating virtual walk through the evokative streets of the Canning area. An awe inspiring magical mystery tour of great stature. This is simply some of the best work yet on the internet and will do no harm in promoting Liverpool as an historic city, filled with atmosphere and passion. This shows Liverpool as it truly is: a place of enormous character and extraordinary originality.

It is such a pity that City Council policy has turned the area into a vomit and vandalism area for drunks going home from the 'entertainment' areas in the so-called "regenerated" parts of town. It was particularly thoughtful of the Council that when part of Bedford Street South was re-cobbled for the benefit of film companies, that the cobbles were so poorly fitted that drunks can easily lift them out of the road surface to smash residents' car windows. Lovely.

Regarding the 'CAAG Rag' terror campaign. These threats to 'out' rubbish tippers are all very well, but I have written to the 'CAAG RAG' to complain that my rubbish had been STOLEN from our private back yard and thrown all over the back alley! Are the real tippers likely to be tortured by their consciences? I think not!

Wonderful, Wonderful site - I visit through tearstained eyes - it brings back such a wonderful carefree childhood I spent at 93 upper parliament street in the late sixties and early seventies. We used to have a play school room in the attic, a disco in the basement (the whole street used to come) and climb the huge sandstone walls to the back garden (they're no longer there now - I went back recently). Liverpool Housing Trust have restored most of the houses in Upper Parliament Street but to my eternal horror they have bricked up the basement windows. Your site makes me sooo' homesick.

Soon (May 2000)it will be my joy and priviledge to again walk Liverpool's hallowed sidewalk's on a forthcoming holiday.Incidentally,is there anyone out there who can tell me how I can obtain a copy of "The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists" by Robert Tressell ?

CHANGE OF EMAIL ADRESS last one wrong PRESS RELEASE IS YOUR STREET A STYLE STREET? A STYLE STREET RIGHT UP OUR STREET! A PLACE TO COME FOR A CUPPA! TV Producers are hoping to visit the residents and businesses of Grambier Terrace/Canning Area to star in the BBC's very own road show called 'Style Street'. Presenters and production teams aim to spend a week on location at a fun, lively and attractive street - looking at some of the more unusual businesses and shops in the area and the people of the street who have fascinating hobbies, skills, pastimes, collections or jobs. The programme will also feature some of the more unusual attractions in the area as well as residents chatting with television experts on everything from fashion and cooking to gardening and health. The production team would like to hear from anyone in the Liverpool (especially Rodney Street, Canning Street, Gambier Terrace) community who is or knows of any colourful characters that may fit the criteria. And any interesting groups or societies that are keen to be involved. The more unique or quirky the better! Series Producer Tracy Molloy says: "We're keen to find a street with residents who share a great community spirit and who between them have some unusual interests, hobbies, business or crafts etc. Either at work or in their spare time. This is also a fantastic opportunity for people to show of their street." We have our own garden and cookery experts on hand - also some lucky resident will be given a free DIY makeover in their property. Anyone who thinks they have a potential 'STYLE STREET' in the area - please contact Annemarie Leahy or the rest of the production team at NMTV 192 Huntington Road York YO31 9BW 01904 621331 - Tel 01904 621335 - fax research@nmtv.ltd.uk Notes to Editor: NMTV is an independent Television Production Company. Filming for this 40 programme BBC series will begin in April. For further details please do not hesitate to

I am impressed by the work that has gone into assimilating information on an area of great historical interest. If anyone gets the chance, have a look at St Brides Church and check out the egyptianate windows and 'free pews' which remain intact. Also another Liverpool gem exist around the corner at St Margaret's Toxteth - a testament to Victorian high church, tractarian influence. Keep up the good work!

Looking at your photos has brought back many memories of my younger years playing in the streets around Bedford Street, Egerton Street, Huskisson Street and Parliaiment Street. I can visualise all my friends of those days! I went to St Saviours School in Canning Street from 5 - 13 years of age. I then went to Toxteth Technical School in Aigburth Road.
