1825 LIVERPOOL ~ Streets ~ No.23


Since my last walk-about, I have been gainfully engaged in brightening up our Parlour which, you will probably remember, received some unwelcome goods from our local brewery! For those of you who are not acquainted with the incident, I will briefly enlighten you. Some weeks ago a brewery dray careered down our street and collided with the wall of our dwelling, catapulting several fully laden barrels through our window and causing considerable damage to both the structure of our house and the furnishings and drapes in the room. All is now repaired and decorated, and new furniture installed. The aroma of yeast which pervaded the air for some considerable time, is now 'overcome' by the scent of spring flowers bought by my wife from the local flower seller who at this time of the year is selling her wares from a large basket near the top of the street. The day, has dawned brightly, and for the first time for months, song birds can be heard. Everything seems to be springing back to life............... ..........................I am therefore donning my walking attire and setting off for another jaunt!

It has been a pleasant walk today, in warm, spring sunshine. So much so, that I have called into a local bakery, bought a small crusty loaf and some cheese, and am now sitting overlooking the river watching the variety of vessels sailing on their business. When I come back to my next street walk I will be starting with EVERTON BROW and carrying on to EXCHANGE ALLEY..........
