Didn't the Goudys live in Alliance Parade.  4 girls and 1 boy I think.  The girls went to Everton School.

I also remember the Gillilands at 16 the Parade. I lived at 17 and Elizabeth was my best friend in our teens. I've recognised a lot of the names on BF. My name is Myrtle formerly Barr and I'm sure lots of people remember my brother Roy who visited lots of houses.

Good to get a reply thanks. I'm not a techphobe altogether but I find BF quite hard to use. Maybe just because I'm new to the website. What was your surname? I remember the Dunbars had a motorbike and their dog rode in the sidecar! The Duncans lived next door to us. Billy, Bobby, Isa, Jean and Jim. I went to the Model with Jean and the Telfords, Nella and Margaret. Also Georgie Bennett and Maybeth Young. Mr Gilliland turned up at STC in the 60s working as a security man. I worked there for 12 years. He was still the lovely man I remembered. Saw a post from Eleanor, Marie Holmes' daughter. My sister Ivy was friends with Marie and Jean I think. Sorry to hear about Eileen. I met her and her Mum years later. Eileen had a great personality. 😁 I was born and reared in the Parade. Mummy, Roy and I left in 1963. Been back twice over the years but the streets are completely different. Still the same in my memory though!  🙂
