All the old newspaper archives have an extortionate subscription to view and browse but there is a free welsh paper archive
It helps with some very old History requests somewhat
It has a lot of Wirral and Merseyside stories within these papers
What I found was a numerous number of collisions on the River Mersey but that was just 1 search
Here is one from 7th December 1878
It covers 1800 to 1910
Here is the link if interested http://newspapers.library.wales/
If you find anything interesting please post
