Does anyone have a picture of the flats that used to stand at the junction of New Chester Road and Green Lane, Birkenhead, almost opposite the main gate of Cammell Lairds? Or has anyone got a map which shows them? The flats were two-storey redbrick tenement style, and were demolished in the late 60s or early 70s.

Thanks for the map, chriskay. I'm sure the flats are those two long rectangular blocks just south of Green Lane, fronting New Chester Road.

Thanks for the brilliant pictures, derekdwc. The top one, showing the council flats, is exactly what I'm looking for. I wonder if you've got a slightly sharper scan of it? On the second picture, 'Victorian artisans' dwellings' is that the corner of Green Lane and Mason Street? I wonder if you can make it out from the street signs? Thanks once again.
