Sorted..., and have filled in another part of my family History puzzle. I didnt know about the yard at gladstone street....

William ( Bill mentioned above ) was my great grandad, who went it alone, away from the family trade ( Dairy ) to set up the second hand shops, which my Grandad then carried on, at the yard seen in the first and second photo's I posted and a few other places around, while his brother went into the newly emerging world or motorcycle sales.

Ha! well done; a clever thought. The final bit of info. would be to ask if they know the number in Bentinck St. which would place it exactly.
I've enjoyed this little bit of research & hope I may have helped you & Phillhere with your researches.

Cheers, Chris

Specifically to Chris.
This should probably go in another thread (borough road), but, I was wondering,
you appear to have maps showing the street numbering for Birkenhead, could I be cheeky and ask if you have the same type of map covering Borough Road, as I am trying to figure out where 279 and 421 Borough road were, being odd numbers they are on the library side, but I suspect the buildings are long gone.
These were the the two addresses of the family the around the turn of the century.

I'll have a look, but not many of the maps to which I have access are at that scale.

Unsure whether this is the yard at Exmouth / Gladstone street as mentioned earlier, but underneath the main signage, you can make out the words motor cycles and spares...

can't figure what the building in the background is, relative to where this might be....

any ideas let me know....

Can't place it, but I'm sure someone will recognise the white building in the background. We can at least date it as not earlier than August 1967 from the "F" registration mark on the Dormobile.

Could indeed be the corner of Exmouth & Gladstone. This map from 1955 shows that corner chopped. If so, that's a Pub behind.

Wonder if that could be the Raven public house? If so, the marriotts in the photo would stand near to where the irish Pub (i forget what its called) is now.

The white building in the background was the Royel Exmouth hotel
and the Marriots yard was a great place to root thru when coming home from hemmy school,I lived in Lowther st until it got pulled down,there was a passagway between the Eccy and the yard ran from back Exmouth st into Exmouth st.

so Razzi lived in Lowther st,old Lowther or new Lowther st

I used to live in the block of houses that was surrounded
by Atherton st,Claughton rd,and Exmouth st.Our back yard used
to face the back of Walter Marriots junk yard The front of the
house looked across the bombed site on to Bright st
I was six when we moved in there i 1945 i left to go to sea 1960
Does anybody remember the Pub the Music Hall it was on the
corner of Glaughton rd & Exmouth st it was opposite the Bakers
Arms the landlord was called Harry (Swank) Rogers
