Just to say that the Wirral Museum (the old Town Hall in Hamilton Square) has a couple of rooms devoted to Cammell Laird's. Well worth a visit. Also in the museum is an excellent scale model of Woodside station which occupies most of a room. The building itself is pretty impressive too.
The museum is open Tuesday - Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Parking can be tricky on weekdays, better at weekends & of course it's just a couple of minutes from Hamilton Square station.

It also contains the Wirral Archives, but that's only open a couple of days a week.

Cheers, Chris.

It's FREEEEE! Definitely worth a visit.
I was so offended when I found they'd moved the Town Hall to Wallasey, but now I'm glad we can all get to see the inside of the old Town Hall.

You don't know how important this is!! I will always regret not asking my old man about all his memories. If we don't do it, so much knowledge is lost for ever. DO IT PEOPLE; if you don't, you may regret it you're 60 & trying to research your family History; even consider recording it.
Why do you think I chose that quote for my signature?

Wirral Museum is also Haunted. wink just had to get that on in hehe.. The Town Hall its self is an impressive piece of building the stained windows up the staircase and all the art deco on the walls. I just go and look at the architecture as that intrests me.. The best building ive ever been in is the Anglican Cathedral in liverpool that building blows me away...

Yes, the cathedral is splendid. I also love the Catholic cathedral. Have you ever been to Prague? The architecture is mind blowing.

Oh yes; especially if you like art deco. It was the home town of Alfons Mucha, one of the greats of the Art Deco period. Apart from that, it's one of the oldest & best preserved cities in Europe. It was never damaged in the war, since it was occupied very early on by the Germans & the allies saw no strategic purpose in bombing it (it was bombed once by mistake by the Americans, who mistook it for Dresden, 80 miles away)!

I love abit of Art Deco and always searching through time out and other mags for any exbo's in London as i am here in the capital for a while now.
If you want to see spectacluar buildings the go to Catalunya!
Domenech y Montaner, Idelfons Cerda, Gaudi, Puig y Cadalfalche, Joan Miro, Salvador Dali, Piccaso, Gorka, Antoni Tapies!..the list is endless. Apart from such a concentrated source of art and architecture the great thing is that all this genuis work atracts many amazing expeditions such as Rembrants and CONTEMPORARY!
Barna = Surrealism!
Sorry if any spelling mistakes, just come in from a rather random and productive night in West London!
Oh how i miss the delights of RJ's, Birkenvegas and Hoylake
