Another clip from the German film. This time it’s Dingle and my favourite. Grafton Street is in the vid. If you’d like to see the whole of the film, please add your comments and I’ll sort something out. Thanks.
Click the image for the video.
This is an amazing find. I’ve never heard of this film before. Subtitles would have been a good idea, but it’s a good watch anyway. Thanks Dave!
I was in the same class in Dingle vale with George. We grew up together from Matthew Arnold School to DVS
In the late 50′s I was in a skiffle group called the “Dingle Dices” with Dougie Meakin, John Mahoney,Tony Evans. As time progressed we new Skiffle had had it’s day. Dougie wanted to form a proper Beat Group. We were all working now where as before we used improvised instruments’ Dougie’s Dad A;lbert’ even made his son a Guitar from a Kit! John Mahoney was a wizard in electrics self taught. He would make amplifiers out of old wireless case’s and even made his parents a stereo unit from an old cabinet. It was proposed that we all take out a hire purchase agreement with Hessy’s in town and buy the necessary instruments. Seeing asI had been the washboard player
I had moved over to 1 ‘ yes 1′ Snare Drum. I was at the time an apprentice in Dysons earning around £3.00. per/week. There was no way I could get hire purchase let alone afford it, So my very short band career came to an end. Soon after The Group became quite known in Liverpool called the Mindbenders they had to alter this name as there was another group on the scene at that time which were hughlie popular. It was at this time I think’ when George joined the group as Base Player. They made one appearence on Ready Steady Go! with a Bob Dylan Number. Afterwards I heard that George had indeed Joined the Merseybeats.
I lived in beresford rd and went to dvs 1954to1959,joined merseyside unity theatre group through gym teacher Gerry dawson ,,we won the british drama league festival and scored a FREE TRIP TO GERMANY.Dougie Meakin was with us and we had an absolute ball lots of laughs etc.I,ve lived in Australia now for forty years but still have fond memories of my upbringing in the Dingle Regards Syd Nickson
Hi Roy – just read your lines on Dougie Meakin and the Masterminds… I suppose you know that Dougie left Liverpool in ’65 with a newly formed group called Motowns and became very popular in Italy, releasing many records that made the charts in the mid-late 60s there.Dougie still lives in Rome and never stopped playing and singing. He just turned 68 and is a proud grandad. Lally Stott was also part of the Motowns. He returned to the UK, wrote the hit “Chirpie-Chirpie Cheep-Cheep” and sadly died in a road accident. Check out this site for more pictures of the Motowns and many others, part of the “Brit Invasion” to Italy, http://www.beatsessanta.it .
I’m sorry I do not remember you? I lost touch with Dougie when I got married (as you do ) and although we stayed in the Dingle upto 67 I heard from Dougie’s Brother-in-law Jim I think he was called, that Dougie had gone to Italy. I have tried on Facebooke but upto now no luck. We are the same age as well and it would be nice if we could make contact. We moved about Cheshire and Shropshire before ending up in Valencia 41/2 year ago.
Thanks for the info’ anyway Pat.
An interesting film and as I speak a bit of German. t makes out that the majority of the youth in the Dingle are baddies and go round beating up old ladies with bike chains and pinching their bags.
I would like to see the whole film.
Think you ve got your wires crossed here Ron, George Cassidy was a member of a group and also played with the Merseybeats, he or his friends or anyone else in Dingle House went round beating up old ladies. If you interpret it properly, you can understand things like Ringo Starr, this is because George was heavily involved in the local music scene!
sorry that should read, neither he or his friends beat up old women!!!
I WAS BORN IN DINGLE HOUSE IN 1947 ,KNEW ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE VIDEO BROUGHT BACK A LOT OF MEMORIES
hi maureen we must know each other,i lived in arthur st, born 46 live in gambia now new ethel usher, alan scot, alan morton.hope your well.
do you know thompsons park hill road
fantastic would love a copy if possible, can you e-mail me the details – thanks
I was also born and raised in Dingle House, and know lots of the people on there,I would also like a copy if possible please. Thank you for screening this.
Hi.Brenda,don’t know if you remember me and my family my sister was Gladys we lived in 7e,Iwent to live in Canada when i retured my mum and dad had been moved to number 20e, the Nelsons flat. Are you the sister of Lilian Wright, who lied on the top landing?I went to live in th block about 1946, I still keep in touch with Arthur Craven he lives in Skem, Must close now remember me to all the folks that may remember me. Bill Croft.
hi billy do you remember me, i was born in 7f dingle house. my mum was josie and my dad tommy wilson. i used to babysit for your sister gladis. i lived there till they was demolished in 1986 brings back old memories.
Hi Bill (Croft), yes I remember Gladys well, think she was my mum’s bridesemaid, Lilly is my auntie, my dad was Billy Wright, we lived with my nan in 11F when I was born then we went to live in South Hill House, my mum’s name was Esther (Acky) Atkins, my nanny Acky lived in 17E Dingle House, we did have a pic of your Gladys on my mum’s wedding, but unfortunately t got lost when my mum died.. will tell our Lil you mentioned her.
I think Ron was saying that the German comments where saying that the Dingle was rough, not that Georgie Cassidy was. It was rough, and there were baddies around, just like any other city in the land. There was also lots of respect for older people and people would bend over backwards to help each other, even people they didn’t particularly like.It’s good to see me Gan standing outside our house,well me 2nd home ..lol. I would love a copy of the full documentary too. Nice one
Saw my nan kitty and auntie mary loads of memories and a few tears fantatic. Would love a copy for my mum janet x

Great film. Would love to see more if possible. Do you know where I can get any old photos of the Dingle? I lived in Greig Street
I lived in The Dingle from 1961-1968 and loved it. This footage really tugs at the heart strings. oh the days of innocence. I remember my Dad taking me and my sister to both the parks, Princes and Sefton and the old Fire Station in Bevedere Road. Does anyone the Ice Cream Parlour in Park Road ? Now living in London but each time i’m home me and Dad usually take a trip down to the South End. I used to attend St Finbars School and would love to hear from anyone who also went there,
Warm Regards To All George.

Great clip what is the name of the full movie,brings back a lot of memories..
Where can i get the movie?
What a great clip, thanks you so much for posting it. Would be great to see the full film if there is anymore clips of Dingle House. My family were also born in Dingle house they lived there from about the 1940′s till 1986 when it was demolished. Family names include Wilson, Bell and Harwood.
Hi, you mention the Harwoods…My grandfather was a Harwood, Tom, lots of brothers and he lived in Dingle House.
Hi Ian, your grandfather Tommy Harwood, was his wife and his daughter’s name Phyllis? if so they lived next door to us in South Hill House, I spend many a night sitting with Phyllis watching their telly (we never had one).. Phyllis was older than me but we still spent time together, they moved to Speke, I went up to see them a few times with my mum and they came down to ours, but lost touch.
Hi Brenda, sorry I have only just seen your reply….Yes, my nan was Phyllis and yes they moved to speak. Nan died 10 years ago and grandad tommy 5. My mum, their daughter Phyllis is still alive and lives on the Wirral. Dad still does the accounts for the SAMS club (Southern Area Memorial Hall)….Are you still in Liverpool?
Hi Ian, yes am still in the Dingle, am in a flat now on Park Road, right by the new Tesco, I lived next door to the Gaumont Picture house for 27 years (your mum will remember the Gaumo) but sold up recently and moved to a flat, much better for me.
Ian told me about this. I live on the wirral now, have 2 children, Ian and Lesley. both grown up with children themselves.
I remember the old times very well, we had some laughs with your mum!
Cracking clip, I was also born and bred in the block at 1F, moved to Speke in 1963, but still went to the block every night to see my mates some of them – Gerry McConville, Alfie Frances, Brian Mitchell, Terry Dooley, The McCartneys and loads more, seems like yesterday looking at the clip, marvellous, fully emigrated now and live in Wigan
Hi Alan, I remember you well, you were the same age as me, I remember you going out with Brenda Wilson when we were kids… my name was Wright, my nan lived in 11F, Terry Dooley was my cousin …
Hi Brenda I remember you and most of the others who have left comments, Alfie Francis, Tommy Brown, Maureen Dooley, the Longworth girls and most of the others, what a community it was, but I dont think we realised at the time, cant turn the clock back, but lots of great memories
Alright lad…..how’s you. The clip is very good and as you said, I don’t think we realised at the time just how special the community spirit in the blocks was. It was good to see my old grandad on our step. I hope all is well with yourself. If you get a chance have a look at this slide show I made and put on youtube, watch part 2 as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNxq7sBLcGw&feature=plcp. Take care, Tommy Brown.

Thank you, I have recently been searching for info approximately this topic for ages and yours is the best I’ve came upon till now. But, what concerning the bottom line? Are you sure concerning the supply?|What i do not understood is in fact how you are now not actually much more well-preferred than you might be now. You are so intelligent.

Hello fellow Dingle-ites,
What happy memories i still have of living in Dingle House we lived in 7c,
I’m trying to trace the family & fate of a lady who lived for years at 9e Dingle House. Sounds like many of you must have known her. Her name was Margaret Birch, born around 1905ish. She was definitely at Dingle house in 1944 & got remarried from there in 1968, then in her 60s, although the marriage was not in Liverpool. Any help would be very much appreciated. Please phone me on 0151-249 7597. Many thanks!
My wife and i were both brought up in Bowring St, Dingle. She was friends with Christine Costello, Linda Wealthy she can remember a girl called Sylvia. We both reminisce although on a seperate basis, when you walked through the entrance of the Tenny’ from Dingle lane on a Sunday at 12.00. you got a waft of “Sunday Roast” I bet this brings back memories for a lot of people, wherever they may be…mmm still smell it now!!
Hi Roy, Christine Costello lived in my block South Hill House, the one right by Matthew Arnold, there was another girl called Sylvia Evans, is this who you re thinking of? and yes, as you walked along each landing in the ‘block’ you could smell the roasts emanating from each flat… happy days.
Yes Brenda it was Sylvia Evans. Thanks for this. When we got married we lived at my Grandma’s house in China Town (Granville St) We then moved to Byles st,back in the Dingle then as always’you want independance so we took a house in Plevna St, right next to Matthew Arnold playground. I would walk through the Tenny’s at 5.30 a.m to get a bus to the Pier Head then get the ferry to Woodside then get the bus (if I had the fair) or walk with a run down to Cammell Lairds to start at 7.30.a.m. Not complaining, had a job’ second child on the way time to move on!! no regrets.
Whenwe wereat Matthew Arnold School they organised a trip to Port St,Mary Isle of Man. We slept in a church hall on straw pailiases. Me George and Im not too sure but Billy McNulty might have been with us. We went to Woolies and bought a few nick nacks and some other things that seemd to fall into our pockets. George was as far I know, the only one who wrote to his mum and sister nearly every day. He would send broches in the post. He had a wonderful temperament. He would never belong or imbibe to any violence group. In fact none of my Dingle friends had had any trouble with the police. Our parents strictly working class with Working class values,that’s how we were brought up.Also I had never heard of any violence towards old people in the neighbourhood. That’s not to say we were Angels we were’nt.. But avoided bad company whenever we could. Before I left Liverpool I remember reading in the Echo that George had just been made upto Sargeant in the Royal Marines! Would love to know what he’s upto.
hi roy,colin lancaster here from sunny gambia 80f at mo.i remember the isle of man trip couldent beleave it when the porthole,s went underwater on the trip out.remember the trip to romley marsh in kent had never seen apple and pear tree,s lining the road before they dident last long. next trip i remember was 2 italy with jerry dawson and his wife 1 easter we beat eyeties at futty.happy day,s mate.
Great to see your name Roy, there was only a couple of Halls in Matthew Arnold and Dingle Vale and I think it was you and me, I dont know if we are family,I moved out of the Dingle when I was 14 up to the green fields of Childwall, I have moved about all over the place in the last 53 years. Its great to see all the names I know from my school days . I delivered papers working for Mr Cooper in Cockburn Street, in the area the tennies and the shore field streets, I could always read the comics before any one else, in the summer months not the winter, it was a little on the cold side and there was always wind running up the river mersey. I can remember the smells first thing of a morning of toast some times bacon frying, if there was any other aromas I could not smell it as I could not wait to get home, to get my breakfast , it was specular on a Sunday, were everyone seemed to have a fry up or salt fish, ( did not like salt fish)At Christmas my packets would be full of coins with the tips that I had been given from very good natured people of my little area in the Dingle, god bless all of them.
Yes Syd I think you are right.There were few Hall’s about the Dingle I do remember you as I still have a photo of Matthew Arnold with all the kids we went to School with. Names like Billy Mcnulty,Barry Bilsborough (went to his 60th) Eddie Pope, Tony Edwards,Yourself and lots more whom I cannot recall their names. My first job was in Waterworths Park Road. I started there when I was 13 just before Christmas I was amazed with the amount of tips I got. I gave my Mum the wages and kept the tips myself. I could go to the Gaumo’ and watch a U film! and buy an Orange Maid! We still have a Fry-up on Sunday (in Spain since 2009) but we have it for Brunch. I also moved around last place was Market Drayton Shropshire. Had enough of various things going on in UK mainly the bloody weather as we, my wife and I suffer from Arthritis so the warmer weather helps. The Dingle was a great place in Liverpool to be in it had it’s drawbacks but one thing for sure it taught you damn good Streetology which kept us out of trouble etc, Hope you have had a good Christmas mate, All the best from Roy.
Great memories of a bygone age ! my Nan and Grandad had a house on Grafton Street not far from the Iron Bridge, we used to watch the “puffer trains” as they went past and blew their whistle and waved to us !, a New year all the ships on the river would blow their sirens and let off flares !. The house was knocked down ad they ended up moving out to Kirby communitities ripped apart it was a crying shame ! they had been born and brought up in the area for over 70 years ….love to see the rest of the film XX

Yes Colin, I remember Gerry Dawson organising that trip to Italy that must have been where Dougie Meakin fell in love with the Country I guess? If I remember rightly it cost about £17.00. wow! but most of us could not afford this sum as the average weekly wage was around £10.00. per week…boo hoo! so you where one of the lucky ones. Oh’ by the way Temp here today on the terrace is 36.C.(Valencia)
