HUGHSON STREET, LIVERPOOL 8

A row of terraced houses in Toxteth, Liverpool 8. The photograph was taken to record the properties by the City Council, prior to them being purchased under a Compulsory Purchase Order and then subsequently being demolished. The children are playing outside number 25 which is where our family were living in 1963 when the photo was taken. The child standing outside the house is thought to be my brother Gary. Our family moved out of the house in 1965 to move to the leafy suburbs of Childwall, my grandmother and aunt to follow us approximately a year afterwards.
