Definitely part of the Queens though may have been the back bit. I remember it being knocked down.

Yes spot on. See the house on the right covered in ivy? In the later pic it is white. Now it is some finance office but I remember it as a private house in the sixties with a garden in the front. When it came empty we used to look through the window and it still had wall and ceiling mounted gaslights.

I remember the Pub front was right on the road because we used to get the bus to West Kirby from outside it. But then there was a bit at the rear which was atached to the GPO/telephone exchange.

Yes, sorry the picture is of Pear Tree Cottage, not the row of terraces !

thanks ever so much , ive been trying to find pictures of these cottages for so long, they and the coop were knocked down soon after i moved over from liverpool.

The owner of the middle cottage game me and a friend a little plastic snooker table with marbles a few days before they all had to vacate

Were there any photographs of Pear Tree grove published, I'm in the process of looking into my Mitchell family tree, and one death certificate of my Gt Gt uncle James Mitchell has him listed as living at No. 2 Pear Tree Grove.

I lived in PTG from 1944 to 1967 and took a load of photos in late 50s early 60s. Problem is they've probably all got people on them and the houses are just background. Will plough through the negs and see what I've got as a few people seem interested. Some years ago I gathered a lot of info about the inhabitants of PTG so if you want to pm me Merseyman about the family History details you're looking for I might be able to help.
