Livinia Street, looking north-east


Livinia Street, looking north-east
Description:
1970. View of Livinia Street looking north-east from Well Close View to Hawkins Place and beyond towards Meanwood Road at the bottom of the valley. Houses on the lower part of Livinia Street, below Hawkins Place, have been demolished and the rest of the street was soon to follow as part of a large-scale slum clearance of terraced housing in the area.

There is my bike outside of no31 where we lived from 1966. I had just left Meanwood Rd school and used the bike to commute to Stainbeck Secondary. At the time of this picture most of my friends and neighbours had been shipped out to council estates on the outskirts of the city. They called it slum clearance but it was no slum to me. It gets me a bit emotional and angry that they bulldozed my community rather than modernise it. I guarantee it would be still standing today.
