In the mid nineteenth century the area around Edge Hill in Liverpool started being developed, with large houses for merchants who wanted to move out of the city itself for the cleaner air of the suburbs. The main development was along Edge Lane itself. As the twentieth century passed the area changed, as large cities do, the houses became more run down and then converted into flats and bed sits.
Edge Lane it self is the main link between the end of the M62 motorway and the city centre and gave a very depressing view of Liverpool in the Twenty First century as visitors arrived by car. So the council decided to invest in a new approach road along the Edge Lane Corridor but some of the residents fought it and the area languished eve further. Then came 2008 and the City of Culture so to improve the view for visitors it was decided that the boarded up houses would have colourful scenes painted on the boards to brighten the place up, so many houses were so treated, this is just one of them.
