I used to live in the Round House in Magazine Lane, one of the oldest buildings on the Wirral. I have a scrapbook of photos and newspaper cuttings which I don't want any more. Would a local historian be interested in it? If not, I'll bin it.

PM me. Mike

You could hand it in to the the Record Office at:
Wallasey Central Library, Earlston Road, Wallasey, CH45 5DY - Tel: 0151 639 2334

or to:
Wirral Archives, Lower Ground Floor, Cheshire Lines Building, Canning Street, Birkenhead, CH41 1ND - Tel: 0151 606 2929

I'm sure both would be very interested in it.

Thank you for the name drop. cool

Is there a possibilty that you could scan the information and e-mail them to the interested parties? The originals could be presented to Wallasey Reference Library as suggested.

Well, certainly a lot more interest than I expected. I'll scan the stuff and put it up here, though some of it is fairly faded newspaper cuttings and may need touching up with Photoshop or similar.

One person who would like to live in the house at some point in the future has PM'd me to ask if he can have the book, but I agree with the suggestions here - it's part of Wirral's History - and once scanned will donate it to the archive. I work just around the corner from the Cheshire Lines building so it's no problem to drop it off.

Thanks all, watch this space for the scans (give me a few days)

cheers
Mike

ps. Jabber, you're welcome to have a browse. PM me and we'll work something out.

I went to MikeT's house & had a look through his scrap book & collection of photographs. All very interesting & well collected.

What was of interest is that the actual round house,(that was a separate building at one time) was actually built 50 years before The Magazines (not the Pub!) so was not originally the watch-keepers house, but maybe a fisherman's cottage, albeit of unusual design!
