Royston Street - waiting for demolition
This is Royston Street which is being demolished as part of Liverpool's Edge Lane re-development scheme. Notice that all ground floor windows have been bricked up and doors replaced by metal security panels. The top floor windows have all been securely boarded. No one is getting in here before the bulldozers arrive! It seems so sad that these houses (which were among several hundred compulsory purchased properties) have to be replaced by new residential and business facilities. This is how communities die - I wonder if Liverpool will be a better place to live when the planners' vision is realised!
