My mum, Marie Wilson, was the licensee of 'The Scotch Thistle' in Bentinck Street until it was demolished.I can remember the butchers shop on the opposite side and of course the 'chippy' and 3 sweet shops.I think there was a barbers somewhere.

We lived in what would be new lowther street i think, as we were still there when the firestation and the then ambulance station went up, we were only under compulsory order when they wanted the land for the new estate. As to the roberts family, my maiden name was roberts. we lived at 36 lowther st. nan and grandad and uncle ken roberts lived on the corner of fox st at 111 craven street. george the barber,lol wanted for the crime of turning me into illya kuriakin with my then fetching bowlhead hairdo. i never lived it down being a girl.jones' was taken over and became masons newsagents. i think that was in early 70s

Anne had two brothers, David (that's me) and Roy.
We also have a younger sister named Kathie.
After leaving Lowther Street we moved to 205 Conway Street, above the dry cleaners shop opposite "Johnny's" chippy.
A few years later we moved to the North End of the town.
I am now living in Bidston Avenue and my local watering hole is Our Lady's Parish Centre.
I have many fond memories of Birkenhead, especially 60's and 70's, and love to share them with anyone who cares to listen.

I used to live in 'little' Sun St. Does any one remember Miss Heggie's on the corner of Sun St and Bentinck St? It was a general store. What I remember most about it was the advert on the ceiling with massive bull on it. I think it advertised Bovril.
