Loc: Bebington
Hi all I own a shop in Bebington road new ferry formally known as Wesley press and then Ferry Fresh. I would just like to see what the road and buildings were like before the road was pedestrianised.
I have found lots of photos of the top and bottom of Bebington road but none of the middle.
So if anyone knows of any photographs of the middle of Bebington road New Ferry. I would be very grateful.

It was 62 Bebington Road. Not only did they sell bread but also pet food, fertilizer and seeds. The date of the picture is 1913 so may of not been around in your time.

These photos are fantastic. I've just spent most of the morning in Bebington library finding out a bit more about my building.
After sifting though the gores directories and Kelly’s directories I found the following entrys.
1902: John Irwin Sons & Co Ltd (Grocer)
1916 - 1955: Roger Williams (Grocer)
And a strange entry of
44 - 46 Bebington Road New ferry
1960-1962 Wesley Press (Printers) & Reece & Sons Ltd (Confectioners).

Thanks for all your help & information
Martin.

Hello Liberator,

You have more photos of New Ferry I see smile Did you find these ones after I asked last year if you had any more?

Can someone please invent a time machine - as I'm sure many of us would love to step back in time to appreciate just how proud and so much better our communities seemed to look in those days? Or is it just our rose-tinted spectacles looking at all these lovely pictures and not appreciating the relative poverty that some people lived in just around the corner?

Hello Liberator??? Whatever happened to using my name "Paul"!!! liberator31 is just my website address. It is named after an OMD album from 1993 (Liberator). The "31" is the age I was when I first started to compile material on Wallasey History for the internet - 10 years ago this May!

As for the photo's... I came across them in "Yesterday's Birkenhead" (which includes New Ferry) book by Ian Boumphrey. Available in all good book shops!
