I work around the City, it always strikes me, the scale of the old buildings and their grandeur and the surrounding streets, and their history, and also the many Pubs, that are now also history, around the back streets.
In many ways, so much to be thank full for, but to build a new future, as EFC, we must rise from Ashes of previous history, and build a new era.

I am also intrigued by where Holy Trinity church was situated, Im thinking of St. Anne Street, and the fact he was born off Dale Street might mean thats where he was baptised.

Anyway John, how are you, looking forward to the new season? These new signings might buck all of us up. I hope you are okay and getting out a bit more than you did during the lockdown, which put years on most of us.

Strange to compare the structural quality of these old buildings, squalid as some became, and in the disrepair they are, with the trash that's thrown up now.
The grandeur Paul describes, when things were undertaken with pride and the best intentions, you can almost feel it. Long gone days.

I'm OK and I trust that you too are in the best of health, I am looking forward to the new season, but I will not return to Goodison until I'm satisfied that it's safe to do so. I know that there are some who mock me for not watching the televised games that were played behind closed doors; my stance has not changed and I will only attend when there is no restriction on attendance figures. I have principles that I adhere to and no amount of snide comments can influence them.

I will be looking at the pros and cons of going but admit I am now eager to watch the resurgence of our team and hopefully they will give us something worthwhile to watch and cheer. Best wishes John and good health.

You watch we'll go and bloody have a miracle and win the league this season without us being able to attend a single game.
And some on here will say "typical Everton that." ;-))

I really enjoy these insights I to our history. I also envy you gentlemen your knowledge of the city. I must confess, my scant visits these days from the other side of the world simply involve visiting the Grand Old Lady, my grandparents' graves in Anfield Cemetery and then back off to the relatives in Rainhill.
On our last visit in 2019 (Everton 2-0 Burnley) even my aunt who has lived on Merseyside all her life said she now struggled to drive round Liverpool centre, such has it changed
You have inspired me to spend a couple of days next time we are back, having a really good mooch around the city. Any suggestions of places to start (apart from L4) would be appreciated. I will certainly have a look over Bramley Moore Dock. You never know, there may be something to see by then!
