Thanks for posting that, Lee. A nice nostalgic overhead view of the old Ritz cinema there, where I was projectionist. & a pic. of the Empire, which I'd forgotten about.Now who can tell me when the Conway St. viaduct was chopped?

Cheers, Chris.

there used to be a bathroom kitchen /diy shop running along side it in conway street(where the cool rooms and beach are now)that was forced to close due to lack of custom when they were taking it down

There is some pictures in the PDF, but despite months of searching, I havent yet been able to find modern photos of the Conway St Flyover or the old Birkenhead Bus Station located alongside it.
