When the weather is very dry, and the grass is short (like in 1995), you can actually see the outline of the foundations of where Ilchester Square once stood.
There are very few pictures about on the internet of Ilchester Square which is surprising, but some residents bought pictures of the Coronation parties in 1953 from the Birkenhead News
, which I have seen and they are very clear and in black and white.
Somebody somewhere must have copies of these.
Pictures of the square were also featured in the Birkenhead News
in the early 1970's when demolition was being discussed. There was a report by the council referring to "Social Misfits" which the Birkenhead News
picked up on and went around interviewing residents about it.
More recently, an episode of Merseybeat (the first in the final series) was filmed in Ilchester Road, Tyrer Street and Buccluech Street.
Here is a picture of the remaining flats in Ilchester Square as seen from Ilchester Road:
