So, continuing my Sunday walk this week. It’s a beautiful, sunny day. And having walked to the Bold Street Festival, through Granby, Canning and down the hill from Hope Street, now I’m outside St George’s Hall.
Waiting for the 19 bus to take me to North Liverpool.
I get off at Walton Lane and walk along Bullens Road to the first place I want to see.
Diana Street, Walton.
This is the street of my earliest memories. We lived in two different shared houses here until I was three years old. I don’t remember any cars then, back in the 1950s. People like us just didn’t have them. But I do remember standing in the front window sometimes and watching thousands and thousands of people walk past the house.
Because at this end of the street is Goodison Park, the ground of Everton Football Club.
