threshers on the corner of sandy lane used to be car showrooms, the last of which was a diahatsu in the mid 80's

Wallasey Village
Going to the other extreme the first photo below is of a painting by JH Robinson showing the junction of Wallasey Village and Leasowe Road (off to the left) and looking west towards the sea.

The second photo is of a painting also by Robinson showing a snow scene at the top of Leasowe Road viewed from about outside the current No 8 Leasowe Road and looking North East towards Wallasey Village (more or less where the Post Office used to be). St Hillary church is clearly visible (but no second tower!)

I have no idea when Robinson would have done those paintings and how much "artistic licence" is involved. I have postcards showing the same scene in about 1905 - and it is VERY different. I will guess the painting depicts the scene around 30- 40 years earlier. Whether that is too early for Robinson I do not know. Certainly he was painting at 1879 because I have a photo of another of his paintings with that date.

Well I married into Wallasey village.
By that I mean My wife grew up in the village, her dad and his siblings grew up in the area after moving from new brighton.

After getting married we lived with her parents for 2years but have recently bought out own place in wallasey Village.

There little things that bug me, i.e:
which school does School lane relate to?
What where the gates on the corner of Folly Lane and Wallasey village for?
Where was liscard & Poulton rail station?

its also the little things like the car showroom that Jonah mentions. this is the unwritten History that we need to talk about.

The gates near Folly Lane were the entrance to Buxton House, the building of which was situated more or less where the flats are now ie to the left when you go through the gates. My other info about Buxton House at at my mum's house - I will get it later and post. I have already taken some "now" photos. I can tell lots of tales about playing in trhe derilict Buxton House and the abandoned gardens.

The school was PROBABLY St Georges because previously that road was called Back Lane. I will check with mum this afternoon or tomorrow. I went to St Georges school - and you can even find my piccy on their website

Right - I have that bit about School Lane COMPLETELY wrong. A senior moment they call it. I was referring to St Georges Road that used to be called Back Lane

School Lane runs from Wallasey Village by the Cheshire Cheese Pub down alongside Mosslands School to about the small railway bridge. Originally there was another Pub on the opposite side of the road from the Cheshire Cheese and about on the corner of School Lane. It was called the Ring O Bells. On the other corner of School Lane was a proper half timbered cottage that was demolished in about 1920 when the widened/ straightened the road.

If you went down School Lane from that junction with Wallasey Village the school was on the right hand side - just about where the first of some bungalows are now.

I have a fair number of pics from around that area (and I took some "now" pics yesterday) so I will do a picture post as soon as I can.

Snod (still searching for the Buxton House details - they were not where I expected)

Many years ago ie like in about the mid/ late 1960s I visited a lot of the old folks around the village, chatted with them and especially copied any old photos they had - - or any paintings. Being from a well known village family hel;ped a lot with introductions. These days you would carry a laptop/ portable scanner for old pics but unheard of then of course so I used to have camera/ tripod and a couple of battery lights to copy documents and used camera + reflector flach for paintings, Unfortunately all was in monochrome. I did all my own film processing and never advanced to colour
