This is a bit of a long shot but.... does anyone out there have any photographs of the massive Victorian building that housed the pumping engines at the Prenton "Borehole" ??
It was demolished (with difficulty) in the early 1970's and replaced with electric pumps in the industrial "sheds" that are there now.
Used to walk past it every day when going to Prenton Primary School. Coal fired Lancashire boilers, that hot oil and coal smoke smell, massive flywheel revolving, slow thump-thump-thump of the engine.
Photographic opportunities missed !!!
Might drop a request to the local rag (B'head News
