Picture post card from Liverpool to tourists of the world - This is the reality!
While walking down Granby Street we met one young woman, I assume to be from an afro-carribean background, who shared her thoughts on the community and informed us that their recently built homes which are shown top-middle and bottom right in the photo-montage are threatened with future demolition. She told us the council officer who leaked this information to the community was sacked as a result, this is the first I'd heard about it and thus can't corroborate it from other sources. As a former resident of Norris Green and the 'Boot' neighbourhood it was plain that we shared similar concerns.
It takes more than one afternoon to drive around all the threatened working class communities in Liverpool and Merseyside. The beginning of this massive demolition programme noticeably began around 1995 in the city centre, the rate has increased and is now spreading like wild fire to the outer working class communities of Liverpool and Merseyside.
