Can anyone tell me who where the landlords of this Pub in the 1915 to 1930 period? I don't live on the Wirral so its not easy for me to trace this period.
Regards

Was this the one opposite New Ferry pier that used to be known as "The Buffs" (now Derwent Lodge Care Home)?

You would need to look in Directories such as Kellys They have these in the
Bebington Central Reference Library, Wirral . They have lists of Pubs in the
Trades and businesses section . Birkenhead Ref Library also have such
directories for reference but Beb are much more accessible and " self service "
system there is much better . If you really want this info i am willing to call in there for you and look it up . Please verity years or dates you want to check
and i will know it is a genuine enquiry . Let me know on this page or by sending
a P.M. to me

From the 'New Ferry Online' website............


NEW FERRY PIER c.1912

Looking back along the pier to the shore, we can see the Esplanade to the right, the ferry office building with the New Ferry Hotel beyond. The boy posing for the photographer (about 13 years of age) was from the training ship Indefatigable that was moored in the river. The pier, built in 1865, was the longest on the Mersey, stretching out 850 feet into the river. It was demolished in 1929, seven years after it was seriously damaged by a steamer.





NEW FERRY HOTEL c.1896

This is how the New Ferry Hotel opposite the pier looked at the end of the 19th century. It had been built in the days when New Ferry had been a "pleasure garden" for trippers from Liverpool who came over on the ferry. However, by the time this photo was taken it was looking rather shabby. It would be replaced in 1896-8 by the second hotel which many older people will remember.

Brilliant! Well done, now just where was that revolving door that my friend caught his heel in one night? Funny at the time, but I bet it hurt!

I lived there as the caretaker in the early 70's, when it was the Buff Club (RAOB Birkenhead and District). Can't remember any revolving door though so that might have gone by the time I was there, or fitted after I left. It was bought by the Buffs direct from the brewery as I remember. We had working parties to clean the nicotine off the walls and decorate the place a bit.
When the Buff's frittered it away I believe it was raized to the ground so any building there now would be a new one. It even had it's own bowling green and good car park. There was also a superb entertainments room at the back, what a waste.
