I found this booklet during a recent clearout and Iím not sure if itís been featured on WikiWirral previously.

It is a 1983 Merseyside County Museums reprint of a booklet by the Bass brewery firm, giving details of a workersí excursion to Liverpool and New Brighton on July 15, 1904.

The trippers were taken by train from the Midlands to Liverpool, then they could take the ferry over to New Brighton. Iím attaching the pages that deal with New Brighton Ė they make a fascinating read.

I've had this book for years. I can never get over how many special trains this company put on for its employees. It contains some information that I found humourous such as warnings about gentlemen discarding their cigarettes with ladies long dresses in mind. Fascinating look at social History of the time.

I'm not the originator. Can you explain what you are researching for? If you want to know about the town during the fifties and sixties just ask. My home and my playground.

can you remember my post for a uni dissertation that got rejected due to lack of knowledge on the subject by my professors.

well I was planning on creating my own book on the History of New Brighton. With possibly the fire of 1969 being the centre point.

I'm not sure how much it would have been in 1904 but I can certainly remember spending a penny in the 60s and 70s, just a few weeks ago it cost me 30p to spend a penny in Scotland, on saying that you could eat your dinner off the floor instead of seeing someones dinner on the floor, if you get my point.

Was when I were a lad but only in the sit down part. Used to wait for someone coming out and dive in before the door shut.

Jack I would have thought 1969 would be a little late unless you are talking about the decline, but what do I know?

yes the decline bit will be based on 1969 but obviously i will be exploiting the good years of New Brighton. Need to finish this year in uni before i get cracking.
