just got a map I'm trying to date
It has on it
New Brighton Tower
Warren Station
Dock stn (now Birkenhead North)
Liscard and Poulton stn
Workhouse
Train lines and tramlines
I think someone mentioned in a railway topic that Warren stn closed in 1917
Could it be older than 1917

That looks like a mixed up map, I can see parts that I thought were after 1920.

I haven't got my map to hand but I think the Poulton cum Seacombe 1909 map gives what is now Borough Rd (in Seacombe) as it's previous name of Victoria Road. This part isn't visable on your uploaded pic. Need to find out when it changed its name?

Also some of the roads along Liscard Road from the end near Borough/Victoria Rd ie: Bell Rd, Rappart Rd etc were built circa 1897 - so if these are on the map then it must be after say c1900.

Sorry if this sounds giberish!!!!

Re Victoria Road in Seacombe

Taken from a websearch:

Quote
The name of the road was changed to Borough Road in 1918 at the request of the Fire Brigade, to avoid confusion with Victoria Road in New Brighton

Ok, so the map is between 1897 (when some of the streets were built) and 1918.

Good find like you said for 80p!

something strange about the tranmere map,i live in marquis street and my house was built in the 30,s.your map shows the road as lord street which i have never heard before.anybody know anything about why this would be.have to wonder why the road would be there in the first place with no houses on it as it does not really lead to anywhere,that probably sounds stupid but i know what i mean lol.
