Seeking old pictures of Egerton Street area, Birkenhead #1031071

Does anyone have any photos of the Egerton Street / Tunnel Road / Getley Street / Grange Street / Chester Street / Waterloo Place area of Birkenhead before it was all demolished?

This whole district was cleared in 1967-1969 to make way for the Mersey Tunnel approaches flyovers. It was totally obliterated, but the attached map from the mid-1950s will give some idea of the area in which I'm interested.

This part of Birkenhead was originally the site of Back Chester Street, a notoriously squalid area of 'court' slums. The worst of these were demolished at the turn of the 19th century and replaced with rows of terrace houses and flats, known as 'artisans' dwellings'.

These were built by the council under the Housing of the Working Classes Act and remained until they in turn were demolished in 1967-1969.

I lived in one of the 'artisan dwellings from 1953 up to relocation in about 1967 to the Prenton Dell Estate. I'm sorry I don't have any photos to share with you, but I would dealy love to see some. I've searched for years and not found anything. Phil
