A recent trip to Liverpool gave me a perfect opportunity to visit and photograph Macrae Road for the MacRae Streets Gallery. This road can clearly be seen on mapping web sites such as www.multimap.com.
However, on arrival at the turning off of Queens Drive where the map clearly shows Macrae Road should be, I was faced with nothing but a large gate. The map showed that the other end of the road could be accessed from the next turning (Mill Lane), so on I went but another gate awaited my arrival.
The area where Macrae Road is theoretically situated appears to be occupied by the Holly Lodge Girls School. This raises the following question of curiosity:
Does Macrae Road run through the school grounds, or was the school built on the area once formed by Macrae Road?
If anyone can shed any light on this, please do not hesitate to contact me.
