Does anyone know the History of the cafe, now called 7th Heaven, on Victoria Road, New Brighton. Next to "Tallulahs"
Was last a photo studio, "Skylight" & has also been a tanning studio & various cafe's.
I vaugely remember it being Boughy's estate agents, but as it has an unusual facade, I wondered if there was any other info out there?

I will look into it..

...in the meantime...Boughley & Son also had offices at 77 Wallasey Road. The number at the 124a Victoria office (the building next to the bank shows up in a 1909 map) was 2567 in the 1960s.

From my scribbled notes I have the following info on 124 Victoria Road

The first mention of 124 Victoria Road is in 1893. Mr Thomas A Lugh resided there and was listed as a Commission Agent.

In 1896 'The New Brighton Estate Agent' was formed and was later carried on by Mr B.I Toner.

After the Second World War Mrs Emily Green opened a Cafe on the site. In the early 1950s (c1952) Boughley & Son became its new occupiers.

Paul,

All I could find was similar. The building is so small & an unusual shape, it is very interesting. Hugh Toner & the name "Sandcroft" were mentioned.

Hugh Toner was an auctioneer at 124 and, at the time of the First World War, resided at Sandcroft which was next door to his business.

Thanks Paul,
So presumably "Sandcroft" was where the block of flats is now to the West of 7th Heaven. Still it has an unusual facade!

I am a little unsure if it was Sandrock next door then Rolleston House (Dr Oldershaw house after he moved from Grove Road) or vice versa...

It does have an usual facade. I imagine it was changed as new owners came in many years ago. The odd thing I find is the size of the little builing which stood between the large bank on the corner and a large house next door. Almost as though it was built to slot in to the gap!

It was always Bougheys when I was a kid. There was a massive house next door with ornamental fountains/ponds and the like but it was derelict. I can't remember if it was ever occupied in my time but think it was demolished?

The house next door WAS Sandycroft (not Sandrock as I said in an earlier post)
