I had a couple of VHS Tapes of old wirral years ago and i gave them away not long back i kept a backup all of them though on a DVD so i could just watch them all at once and keep as i dont have a video anymore its the only way i could keep them as i dont think they have been realised on dvd.. I have another which is currently in the need of Croping to 10minute segments which is 1960s - 1970s wirral smile

Part 2 was Good wink

But that bloody train "Ding Ding" lol
Again loads of stuff i didn't know in there.
Looks like the Mills have been answered now for the pictures thread. Shame not much coverage of the "Tower" as i would
have loved to have seen a view from the top.

I'm now going to watch part 3,4,5.

WOW so much about the Wirral i didnt even know,
what happened i ask? Why so popular and then not frown

Pervey Mayor - at every Beauty contest lol

I'm so glad i didn't have physical education in wirral
schools, if you watch the video's you will see why.
And line dancing or something in the playground raftl
anyone could have been passing was there no shame.....

Brill mate really enjoyed them smile
Bring on the 60's and 70's Pleeeeese
