|Ringo Starr of The Beatles was born here on 9 Madryn Street as Richard Starkey on July 7th. 1940.
In September 2005, Liverpool City Council decided they would bulldoze Starr's birthplace as it had 'no historical significance', despite a previous reprieve back in July. The LCC later announced that the building would be taken apart brick by brick and preserved after all. As of November 2007 the LCC did not yet have planning permission for their demolition plans.
