Milk Street, Liverpool

It was actually called Upper and Lower Milk Street and lay just outside the city centre to the North near Leeds Street. In 1927, the street consisted of poor Victorian housing which was cleared not long after to make way for new tenements. Only a remnant of Lower Milk Street still exists. Maybe chosen by Lowry as the home of Joe Passalique’s friend the bosun to depict the “terrible city” in the short story 'Goya The Obscure'.
