As already mentioned, thanks to Chris for showing us around these places and telling us your knowledge and memories.

Cheers to Matty for the lift and to Mark for cheering the missus up, oh and to pomp just for being there happy

Shame no-one else turned up though.

Anyway, here's some of my photos of the Wirral Museum:

I hope you all enjoyed the trip as much as I did; we must do it again some time. Having said that, every time I come up, I leave feeling a bit sad; although I haven't lived there for 50 years, I still think of it as home. Sometimes I think I should move back, then I think "well, it's only 1 1/2 hours away & where I live there aren't as many scallies & I'd miss my friends here". Thanks for the pics. so far; looking forward to seeing the videos. Anyone who wants old maps should look at www.alangodfreymaps.co.uk
Mark; I think your road should be on the Bidston map.
Here's the only pic. I took & even that's a bit out of focus.

Cheers, Chris.
