It used to be the Holt and Clifton ward, it might still be, which covered the Clifton rd and Holt hill area. The school of art might have been what turned out to be the dance school at the top of Holt hill, a big might, I don't know for sure. I don't think standing now.

I think these buildings from the main list are still standing, although most are no longer used for their original purpose -

Town Hall, Sessions Court, School of Art, Children's Hospital, The Priory, Birkenhead Union Workhouse (St Cath's?), St Aidan's College, General Post Office, as well as Rock Ferry, Central, Hamilton Square, Green Lane and Park stations.

- the only two churches I know are St Werburgh's and St Anne's, which I think are both still there.

The Holt was the Administrative heart of the old Tranmere Township.
7 School of Art was part of Technical Institute at corner of Kelvin Rd & Hillside Rd.
Later site of Hillside Court Flats - built 1966 , now demolished
18 Temperence Hall . Probably building still standing in Holt Road .Originally
Drill Hall on some maps -now Electrical Co premises. J.E.S. I think called .
One of the oldest surviving bldgs inTranmere now.
Can place each & every one of the churches & chapels if you wish.Getting past
my bed-time now but let me know if you want me to list them with location &
" Extant or demolished "

The Holt Technical Institute was the 'predecessor' to the Borough Road Tech College. I first went there starting 1951 for electrical engineering Ordinary National Certificate, then to Borough Road when it opened about 1955.
Perhaps the road names 'Kelvin' and 'Leighton' came from the technical and art institute connection.
I'd like to know of the History of the building but there is nothing on the web. Are there any photos anywhere?

As I remember Titan's gym (bit with the metals shutters on) was butchers. And the other building was Harlands an estates agents. I lived down the road, about 30 years ago.

Hope this helps
