If you put "tobin" in the WikiWirral search box there are a few topics relating.

Could you give a house number for one of the houses on the plot, just to give people a guide where you are looking, I presume this is the Egremont/Seacombe/Wallasey Tobin Street?

Hi, sorry I should have gone into it a bit more!! There are only about 7 houses in the street now, (which is in Egremont), and they are not quite sequential in their numbering. May be something to do with the possibility at the planning stage for more properties than was eventually built. These houses have only been up since about 1978, so fairly recent. I am trying to find info or photos of what was there prior to the houses being built,we know there was a wood yard opposite, can anyone help? Thanks Jess

On the corner of Tobin st and Wright st used to be a company called Dodds Shopfitting, I think it disappeared in the early seventies

On the same side as the wood yard there
was a workshop which made neon advertising
lights.

Was it "Bells"? A mate of mine worked there, then they moved to King St.

Don't know the name but they used to have
signs lit in the shop as they were making them.

That was not "End away" was it - he was a
glass blower.

I don't think there ever was much along that side of the road before the modern houses were built. Here's the OS map of the area from 1909; all of the later editions look pretty much the same, with the addition of an odd outbuilding or two. Apart from the Midland Bank at the top at No.1, the only other property listed in the directories is No.5, the yard on the corner of Wright Street. This was occupied by R T Astle, wringing machine repairer, in 1911, and by a plumber named Robert Pemberton in the 1930s.

Hi thank you very much for the info!! My mum has just bought one of the houses on the top and wanted to know what had been there previously. She can rememeber as a little girl hiding under the privt hedge that used to hang really low to the ground at the bottom of Tobin Street, so there must have been something there at one stage, again thank you, Jess laugh
