I lived in this street from birth till 25 yrs old.  My father lived there from 1925 and he never knew that we were built over Williamsons tunnels.  We always thought that the big disused tunnel in the Corporation Yard was a part built railway tunnel which we now know was one of Williamsons creations part finished.  Pat Burke

I recall visiting once in the late 60s when Walter & Emily Hobson still lived there. Annie & (grandfather) Walter had moved to Primrose Drive by then and Emily & Walter eventually moved to Skelmersdale. I wonder whether we visited because demolition was imminent and my Dad (Harold Hobson) wanted to see it one last time. He had fond memories of Congress Street.
