This is a postcard i purchased on eBay, the picture is of Mersey Park in Higher Tranmere taken in 1904. I do not know where it was taken from, i think it was taken from the Old Chester Road near where the old Mersey Mount flats where because on a map form 1904 i have it shows alotments.

I have got a similar picture somewhere from a similar year of moorland Road, one of the roads between the parks. I will try and Upload it to this thread.

I'd guess that is Downham rd, like the gas lamps and what appears to be a telegraph pole.

wow Brilliant picture thank you

I would say that pic is taken from the the plot of land where the allotments now stands just outside mersey park primary entrance?

Judging from the relationship between the Lodge in the centre & the bandstand, I'd guess it was taken from where the houses of Yelverton Road were later built, looking across the junction of Downham Road & Elm Road - roughly from where I've put a blob on the map below.

I only said 'roughly' - it's often hard to judge exact distances when comparing maps & photos.

If you look closely there are actually two chimneys in the distance, one very tall one and a smaller, fainter one to the left of it. The tall one belonged to the Corporation's South End Refuse Destructor (incinerator, to you and me), whilst the shorter one was at the adjoining Electricity Generating Station that was powered by the heat produced by the incineration of household waste. Both of these were in the Corporation yard on New Chester Road close to the bottom of Union Street.
