Group Description

Smithdown Road in South Liverpool links the vibrant, diverse areas of Toxteth, Wavertree and Allerton. The road has changed considerably over time, and still continues to change today. Many different people live and shop along it, including students at Liverpool's three universities.

'The Secret Life of Smithdown' has been an exciting project exploring the local neighbourhood. The project aims to discover how local shop keepers and shops have helped shape the area and the diverse lives of local residents past and present.

Some of the information collected is now on display in the 'Home and Neighbourhoods' exhibition in The People's Republic gallery in the Museum of Liverpool.

Do you live along or near Smithdown Road now, or have you in the past? We would love to see your photos, especially older ones from past decades if you have any.
