In 1924, the Great Western Railway published a little booklet called Through the Window: Paddington to Birkenhead.
The idea was that passengers could take it on their journey and read interesting information on the places through which their train was passing, helped by text, maps and line drawings.
The 200-mile trip from Paddington Station in West London ended at Woodside Station in Birkenhead, with many passengers then taking the ten-minute ferry ride across to Liverpool.
The booklet divided the trip into eight stages - The Outskirts of London; The Chiltern Hundreds; The Midland Plain; The Shakespeare Country; The Workshop of England; The Severn Valley; The Welsh Marches; The Wirral Peninsula.
The attached pages from the booklet show the Wirral Peninsula leg of the journey, from Chester to Woodside. I hope they are legible.

Not sure where to start with this inquiry. Seeking a photo of old Gilmour Home on Bessborough Rd, located there in 1910s and 1920s. Now has been replaced with Gilmour Mount and newer homes. Old Census states George Gilmour lived at 'The Firs', Bessborough Rd, Birkenhead.
