One of the many bits of trivia I have collected over the years is a book (maybe 300 pages) titled
"Outline Plan for the County Borough of Birkenhead"
My copy has hardly been touched over the years and a 38 x 30 " map in a rear flap pocket has probably never been opened.
The page size is an odd 9.5 x 12 inches so I had to dig out the A3 scanner to copy some of themto insert below
[That is if I can work out HOW to insert an image - I am very new to this site]
I have only attached two images for the moment in case I have done it wrong or the file size is too large etc. If I have then I am sure someone will tell me.
OK, let us see how we get on with those and whether there is any interest in more as scans of text or photos.
Because the book is a PLAN it contains a fair number of maps and photos of the "as it was/ as it is" state - and then even more of the artists impression type ie what some folk thought Birkenhead could look like with various redevelopment schemes.
