I've just come back from a fascinating trip to the Wirral and Liverpool to search for some places I remember living in over 70 years ago! One of the addresses I 'think' I remember is 121 Poulton Road, in a flat above a butcher's shop. Does anyone know if 121 WAS a butcher's shop in the early 1940's? I remember playing at the back on what I think of as spare ground? On my recent visit there was no spare land of course. But there was a school opposite, though not the school I recall.

Another question regards The Wiend, in Birkenhead. I definitely lived there for a while, but I'm not sure of the number, though 25 is in my mind. I would like to know which school was within walking distance for a junior child then.

I'd appreciate any information you might have.

I think the original post was about 121 Poulton Road WALLASEY

If so the school opposite was Somerville Primary and still has a similar name.

I lived in Annesley Road 1943 - 65.

I don't remember a butchers but the Queens Cinema was a bit further down towards Seacombe.

The question about which school related to The Wiend, Birkenhead.
