Its 1926 but the building you are talking about was there until about when they built the New Ferry Bypass.

It is, the view on the picture is from inside the park looking at the rear of what is now the cafe on the New Chester Road.

Here's the view as it is now. Slightly different angle but instantly recognisable.

I'm not sure if that far building could be St Marks Vicarage, it looks likely.

Does anyone know what the building in front of the park was originally? I'm guessing that it was some sort of a lodge, maybe?

Birkennead school of art was the building across the road if that is the one you mean. I think it was donated to the town and was known as The Laird School of Art as well it looked like the town hall and this building were made of the same stone.You could often find a dozen kids window licking as they had nude moddels.Sorry wrong park this was opposite Birkenhead park gates

The black and white building with the tall chimneys on the other side of New Chester Road was indeed the old Vicarage. It was demolished in the late 1960s or early 1970s and replaced with the current modern house.

As stated above, the Lodge was indeed the Park keeper's house. Not sure when it ceased to be a dwelling house, but certainly by the 1980s it was being used to store maintenance equipment by Wirral Borough Council. It sat empty through the early 1990s, but then became a restaurant. Unfortunately, the owner has decided to sell it, and the restaurant closed last year. The building is currently for Sale, and I have heard on the grapevine that a local funeral director has an eye on it to relocate his business into. Watch this space!
