Speaking from the point of view of a 0 to 7 year old, Landport is, or was a good place to grow up.
I was allowed out on my own on my three wheel bike.
At the time Landport was a council estate providing cheap housing to rent.
Unfortunately, the torries and the labour torries, sold the houses. So now it is hard to find somewhere to live on the cheap. we were the only people in Landport to own our house (and here I give away my identity). We ran a shop.

So,have you many brothers and sisters? all living in the same house? Are some of them doctors and some shop keepers? Does your accent sound like a motor boat engine on tick over? Do you overcharge in your shop yet always ask for a discount in others? Do you not need to sit in the sun for a nice tan? Is your idea of a wacky night out to go for an English and order the blandest thing on the menu?

The shop I'm referring to is The Landport Stores. We sold groceries, Pink parafine and Danish Bacon, sliced to order on a machine. The other shop used to be called Windy Banks.
My parents left the shop in 1967 when I was seven.

I too was bought up in Landport. We had a nice house there, taxi's (George & graham) used to visit our front garden very often. Generally when the cabbies left their handbrake off! I remember the shop in question. They were the only ones who used to let me buy Shandy Bass (I believe the drink of toddler chav's). The other shop thought it was alcohol and refused to sell it to us.
I remember using the short cut under the railway line, by what was the community centre, to get to the river! I remember playing in the park by the community centre and every now and then the bigger boys would come along and beat us up just enought to get us off the swings.
I remember "bunking in" to pells pool after it closed on an evening to get a free swim! I remember running through cabbage walk, in fear of being gobbed on by kids sitting in the tree's!
I remember digging for old pottery in the lake/puddle right at the back of the park.
I remember going to the woods and climbing tree's that had fallen down during the hurricane in 87 and taking a big steamy dump, because it was just too far to run home!
Anyone remember Andrew Wren? I do, we were best bud's.
Ah, Landport really was a great place to grow up, once you remove any trace of the Stonald's from your memories!!!!
