Ged Fagan has added another book, containing numerous photographs of Liverpool’s tenements, to his previous two ‘In A City Living’ books (published by Countyvise in 2006) that chronicle the history of tenement housing and living in Liverpool.
Ged’s three books began life as being a simple record of his Liverpool childhood, which saw him living for a period of time in the Gerard Gardens tenements. The books have now become a wonderful means of preserving the memories of the tenements (city wide), including those built in Vauxhall, Edge Hill, Wavertree, Tuebrook, Old Swan, Toxteth, Speke and Garston.
Ged will be having an official book launch and signing of ‘In A City Living 3′
at Editions Ltd (Cook Street, Liverpool 2)
on Friday 16th February 2007 11.00 – 15.00
On display at the book launch will be Ged’s scale model of Gerard Gardens, which has been widely acclaimed and praised by all who have seen the model in 2005 and 2006.
The model also includes Gerard Crescent together with Cartwright, Lionel, Downe and Thurlow Houses. Ged’s book launch and signing is quite poignant in that it was 20 years ago (1987) that Gerard Gardens was demolished. 2007 also sees the 50th Anniversary of when Gerard Gardens played a significant role the film ‘Violent Playground’, which starred Stanley Baker, Anne Heywood and David McCallum.
