I thought I'd start this topic to see if anyone else remembers the Wirral how I do, feel free to add your own


Who remembers...

The shops on conway street? - Clicky

When Europa Pools, Vue Cinema and Conway Park train station was all a massive gravel car park?

There was an Asda where Wilkinsons in bhead town now is?

Fook me, this is showing our ages....

I remember all of those things, plus the Unit 4 Cinema on Seabank Road, the opening of the pyramids (I met and shook the hand of Frank Bruno), I remember New Brighton when it was all rocks and no beach.

Does anyone else remember the Yellow Council vans that used to be everywhere doing maintenance work? I guess its all contracted out now.... frown

Clearing out my uncles attic, we came across 3 bottles of this
stuff MD 20/20 (Mad Dog we called it lol) but it was all lumpy
inside, like pure orange juice lol...

What about what was there before Bidston Moss Tescos lol

I remember the yellow council vans lol
They were a nation wide feature lol.

Joe i remember that Bingo, but never called in.

Remember life when all the Tunnel Flyovers were in place?

Remember when you would only get beat up once a weekend down town.

And finally for this hour, rememeber St James Church when
it was a sensible roundabout frown
