108/365 – GRANNY DUNN’S FLAT – Eldon Grove, Vauxhall in Liverpool. I’ve been doing so much research recently into my own family background, I decided today to take a trip out to the streets around Vauxhall Road where my wife Sandra was born. The flat near to the left of centre was identified as the home of Mary ‘Granny’ Dunn (b.1876) – grandmother of Sandra’s mother, Rose.
There have been several redevelopment schemes in recent years to turn the 1912 Grade II listed buildings once again into habitable dwellings, but these have fallen by the wayside for a number of reasons. This is a pity, as the dwellings would be ideally suited for development as apartments / flats if a new developer could be found.
