"The terraced houses were used as backgrounds for film sets, but children were growing up in them and playing football in the streets. The rag-and-bone man called every week and the cobbles were brushed by a street cleaner."
A number of reminiscence sessions were held during the exhibition in which people discussed the events, places and people captured in Stephen Shakeshaft's evocative photographs. Here is an example of the responses to this picture:
"This reminds me of a very happy childhood in Liverpool. It was an innocent, happy, protected time and these children look as happy and carefree as I was."
