Lost Tribe: The People's Memories
£9.99 paperback Trinity Mirror North West (2012)
The best-selling Lost Tribe of Everton & Scottie Road book encouraged thousands of people to retrace their roots into the heart of one of Liverpool's most famous and historic inner city districts.
The publication commanded four reprints and inspired two major street reunions. A hugely popular history course based on the title led to the formation of an Everton Historic Society.
It is not surprising that author Ken Rogers has responded to the clamour for a second book by collating the memories sent to him by an army of 'Lost Tribe' members who were part of a remarkable exodus in the 1960's when a controversial slum clearance programme forced over 125,000 people to leave their spiritual home for new towns and sink estates on the outer limits of Liverpool.
Those families never forgot the open door heartland they left behind and their personal stories form the basis of the author's new book entitled Lost Tribe: The People's Memories.
You will read about the sights, sounds and smells of the original and world famous Scotland Road with a pub on every street corner; the romantic world of the old inner city cinemas; the local seaside paradise that drew hundreds of thousands to the far banks of the River Mersey; and the bomb sites that held deadly Second World War secrets.
You will meet a highly respected doctor who drove a Morris 8 car down a Liverpool hospital corridor and find out who had the longest name ever given on a Liverpool birth certificate.
The book also reveals what happened when a circus elephant and a lion were kept overnight in an inner city stable block.
You couldn't make it up, but that is what inspired so many people to buy the original Lost Tribe of Everton and Scottie Road publication.
