Yeah definitely Prenton.
It was Sainsbury's that gave it away lol
The roads were dead compared to nowadays, I can't imagine getting along Woodchurch road that quickly today.

they were not that empty,i used to live in 73 singleton avenue and it was always quite busy there.i loved watching that,went past my house and then up past nu-fronts windows were my dad used to work,i had forgotten about that place.incedentley just before the video gets to sainsbury's the video pans past the post office to the other side of the road.and there is a shop next to the car sales place,anybody know what it was called,i asked about the shop a few weeks ago in a post but maybe seeing the video may jog someones memory.

Doesn't look like anything had changed from the '60's except maybe the Sainsburys supermarket. I remember coming back from New Brighton late one night me and a mate and acouple of girls. We got hit head on just near one of the 4 bridges. Tell you now it was a long dark walk back to Higher Tranmere.
