Can't find any photographs, Rock ferry urban areas were generally very poorly photographed in the past.

Also Pitt St.

Marne St was originally called Blucher St but seemed to change name after a very short period of time possibly when Grosvenor St was built.

I can only suggest you try the Wirral Archive Service.

They were parallel to and on the South side of St Pauls Road, they ran up from New Chester Road to what was Earl St which is now Thorsway/Lees Avenue.

Or putting it another way, parallel to Ionic and Gothic on the St Pauls Road side of the school.

A previous thread may give you some more background information about the area and previous road names.

Hi Spellbinder, long time no see hi


Some may be interested in this. I have a copy and every page has old photographs on it. He did one of old Bebington too.
