This photo taken during the War, is allegedly the New Brighton Home Guard marching in New Brighton. I cannot for the life of me recognise the location. I'mm unsure if it is New Brighton. Can anyone help?

Nop. Traffic lights get moved though. Looking at it there's differences so I've changed my mind but seems close.

The reason I mentioned Mount Road was a memory recall of a photo on the web showing something similar to this one,
Must be showing my age now, memory is on the fritz

I've seen similar before, could be part of the Home Guard parade 1945, I think they ended up at Harrison Drive.

In a 1949 directory, the same shops are numbers 108 to 112 Wallasey Road at the Belvidere Road Junction. Looks like they're heading up Torrington Road.
