Doon Street, Humber Street Memories - a Memory of Liverpool.
1956, I was brought up in Doon Street, Kirkdale, along with my 3 brothers and 5 sisters. We all went to St John's School, where we had Father Hopkins and Sister Mary Francis, we used to call them the dragons. If anyone is still around from that era I would love to hear from you. I read some comments yesterday about Walsh's paper shop, can anyone remember Riley's Radio shop corner of Orwell Road and Westminster Road, Pete's the butcher, Fazackerly's Fruit Job where we used to go for penny fades, Melvilles the Chemist, and the most important shop of all, Halls Fish & Chip shop, there was also Buckleys Fish & chips on the corner of Orwell Rd and Medlock Street. Hemmings corner of Tawd Street and Leven Street, he was always grumpy when you went in. The Rec where all the kids used to go with their jam butty sandwiches and bottle of water.
Anyone remember the May prossessions we used have in the street, and then on the Saturday afternoon we would have a tea party taking turns to have in our back yards. Afterthought - if anyone from Doon Steet is around do you remember WEBB's the little shop corner of Humber Street where we used to sit on window ledge of the job and have our discussions.
As I mentioned I would love to hear from any one of the gangs from Doon Sstreet or Humber Street (ie gangs I mean that in the nicest sort of way).
