A row of shops near the Halfway House on Woodchurch Road, Birkenhead, on the way from Arrowe Park Mollington Mill Chester seen here with a sail gone, the rest soon to follow. Mill Lane now reminds us where it was. Removing the loose snow and preparing the ice for skating on Raby Mere during a hard freeze in the late 1930s Eastham Village looking much as it does now 80 years later, though the car would turn a few heads today! A field trip in the late 1930s - Enough said about this little encounter with nature in the raw!
This late 1930s view across Thurstaston towards North Wales is almost unchanged today apart from a few more houses in the distance Rake Lane, Wallasey, in the early 1930s, with a Tram marked "RL" (Rake Lane?) passing Storey & Sons, the butchers "Syrinx" biplane G-ACJK taking-on passengers for a scheduled Imperial Airways flight at Croydon Aerodrome in 1934 A Biplane being prepared for take-off at Kenley Aerodrome in 1934 Rocklands Avenue, Bebington, in the late 1930s , with the original gas lamps and just one lone motor vehicle !
Mayer Library, Bebington Village, at 12.10 on a sunny day in the 1930s.

Wallasey Village as it was before road widening in the 1930s. John Peters from Birkenhead was a scrap dealer by the look of his cart A traditional Punch & Judy Show on New Brighton beach in the early 1930s. Professor R. Codman Junior is using a real dog as Toby The "Black Horse Hotel" in Wallasey Village didn't survive road widening. They are offering "Yates Pale Bitter Ale" - just a quick half then!
