#561711 - 13th Aug 2011 7:35pm Can anyone name this building?

According to the label, this is Argyle Street, Birkenhead 1941 (RAC)




My first thoughts were that it was St Paul's Church that once stood on Argyle St. at the corner of Market St. however I can't be 100%. I can't seem to find anything about Erlac Billiards Hall, nor that Der(went?) property in the background. I also have no idea what the RAC means written in brackets on the rear of the pic. Does anyone have any ideas of what this blitzed building could be?

Can't help with the building, sorry, but ERALC was a brand name of E A Clare & Co, who made (and still make) snooker & billiard tables & equipment. ERALC is Clare backwards! See http://www.normanclare.co.uk/EAClare.html - they actually use the same photo about 1/3 down the page.

'ERALC' Billiards Hall belonged to E. A. Clare & Son, the snooker/billiard/pool table manufacturers in Liverpool.

The same photo is on the site telling the History of the company but only says Birkenhead Air Raid 1940. Maybe that will help...

That website contains an image that says the billiard hall was on the corner of Argyle St and Conway St. Might help identify the building from it's location.

Just the one shot I'm afraid. It's a good one though!


I think it's a bit further on from Hinson St, according to the new info on this thread. I'd have no idea otherwise. Not a great deal of clues in the shot itself.

Which bit of that site Frogger?

yes dan, exactly where the railings on the picture start and finish. it also came right over the road to what we think is a roundabout now. newbee is also right mentioning hinson street. the entrence to that building was fromm hinson street. it was the tiny road between the big general postoffice and the Pub. my dad thinks there is a tiny bit of the road left. we have not been home in the area since last summer, so my dad has had to put his thinking cap on, recalling all his time around there as a child. thanks dan
