From memory, the bus shelters were made of galvo tubing with "Kee Clamp" fittings and corrugated steel sheets for a "roof".

The tubing was extended up at one end for the large plate that gave route numbers/destinations.

Talking about the days when we had "proper" buses that were clean, well-maintained and were painted blue !!

Took the bus and boat to Liverpool every day for years. The bus "station" at Woodside today is a mere joke - a bad one at that.

The "Avoca" cafe that sold mugs of tea you could resurface the road with was next to the inspector's office. "Chalkie" from "On the Buses" lurked in there !!

I remember the shelters, such as they were, as you describe, Pinzgauer. Maybe they put concrete ones there later; I'm thinking of the 1940's/50's. What's your era, TRANCENTRAL?

Cheers, Chris.

Don't know much about the bus station, could give you a fair bit on the train station though! I did have an old picture somewhere with the cream and green Crosville buses at the station but it's been a while, I'm still gutted I lost my Railway Stations of Wirral book, I'll have to buy a new copy.

Anyone seen the model of Woodside in the museum at the old Birkenhead town hall? Really interesting and shows how it used to be.

I remember Olivia's - a very well to do type of cafe. You could time the buses to the second they were that regular. The blue Corporation buses. 58 to Clatterbridge, 51 and 52 to Levers, 64 and 64a to New Ferry.

If you were lucky, if the bus had started off, you could grab the handle and still manage to jump on, then the Clippy would shout "fares please". It used to cost me 1 1/2d (less than a penny in todays money) to go to school. The Clippy had a machine that used to have a set of cross over straps, he'd ask where you were going and turn his dial, turn his handle and your ticket would pop out - they were long then.
