all i can tell you that before it was a chemist it was a taxi rank and a cafe and before that it was a seaside souvenier place for a while but as far as i can remember it has always been used for some sort of retail.victoria road its self bears no resemblence to what it looked like as child.i remember just down waterloo road from you was a hotel which has now been replaced with houses.my parent were brought up in the newbrighton area so i will glean some info from them in the week and maybe some photos and get back to you
