You get to the area you want to overlay the map then click on 'Add' at the top and select 'Image overlay' from the drop down menu (there is also a button for it on the top toolbar). It then asks you to browse for the image in a pop up menu. Once you select the image it puts it on the map . you then have to move it, stretch it by dragging the green bars that appear round it. Once you are happy with it click save.

I have had a go at overlaying the map but it must have been drawn by hand as is does not match the ariel photo very well no matter what I do with it.

Where abouts is the map of the Haymarket tunnels?. I can't find it.

The map is the O.S. 1910 25" to the mile so is very accurate. Of course, in manipulating it, I've changed the scale & it's not quite the same scale as the Google pic. The red additions are mine, of course, & may not be accurate.


Carpe diem.

Great shot taken from Blackpool St Signal Box looking north towards the site of the old Birkenhead Town Station. This area seems to be little recorded photographically, so it's rare to find this one.

The 3 lines on the left are sidings associated with Mollington Street locomotive depot. The next two (including the one which the '9F' is travelling Chester bound - cattle by the look of it) go to/from the docks. The next two go to/from Birkenhead Woodside, and the remaing tracks are the carriage sidings associated with the Woodside trains.

Judging by the state of the locomotive, I'm guessing somewhere between 1965-67.

Goes to show how complex and busy things once were...

Re: that Public House next to Woodside Hotel do you have any idea what the name of the Pub was? When I lived in Bebington in 1979/80 my great aunt told me that the Pub her parents ran was just there. I have a wedding photograph that may have been taken in the back yard in December 1929. Would be great if I could put a name to this Pub, if it is in fact the one. The way it was described to me: the Pub was just outside the gates of Camel Lairds.

Pub outside the gates of Camel Lairds clicky Royal Castle

The one by the Woodside Hotel would have been the Woodside Vaults

On the subject of the Royal Castle Pub, do you happen to know what street it used to stand on?

It's still there - now called "Hotel California" and is a Rock Pub - knwon by the regulars as the Cally....

Re: the Woodside Hotel and Rinty Monaghans - Rintys only opened there in the late '80s with the craze for 'Irish' pubs - it was just hived off from the Woodside Hotel and not an old Pub...

Lovely photo from the signal box - which was raised up on 'stilts' over a running line.

The 3 tracks on the left were actually for a coal depot for the gasworks.

The carriage sidings also had a long shed where coach maintenance could take place under cover.
