Old Maps of Widnes

Historic Maps of Widnes and the local area.

I was born in Widnes Maternity Home in 1946. Not sure if that was the correct name. My parents lived on Boston Avenue in Runcorn and my grandparents on Taylor’s row. It was great finding this site. I’m going to look at the pictures of Widnes and just marvel at it.

Are there any pics of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Junior School from the 1960s? It was the only school I liked going to. We were the first children to go when it opened in 1967. I was in the 4th year and was the only one who passed the 11+ that year. We had a lovely teacher called Mr Kilburn and Mr Conlon was the headmaster.
