The later pics. bring back memories. The street on the left, just beyond the bus, is Mollington St. where there was a railway motive power shed & coaling station. Occasionally used to go there in the late 1940's when I was just into my teens & if I was lucky, get a ride on the footplate to Woodside. Later, mid 1950's when I was a projectionist at the Plaza in Borough Rd. I used to have to collect the newsreel film from Central station twice a week.

Ha! don't get me started. Although I live in Shrewsbury now, I visit regularly. Although much has changed, some areas, like Oxton & Claughton have hardly changed at all. I was a child in Birkenhead during the war. My father worked all his life as a shipwright at Lairds & was in "Dads' Army" & we had an Anderson shelter in our garden. My dad used to take me to watch Tranmere Rovers, which I guess is why I'm not interested in football now.
Glad to have found this site.
Cheers, Chris.
