There is about and I think it's on you-tube a memories of Wirral video 1920s,30s and if my memory is correct it shows a street type party for the Coronation of king George IV in 1936 ,the mayor and the usual hangers were in attendance.

I have also tried to find photos/info about Priory Building (apparently I spent my first 6 months there). The only photo I found is this one...I believe Priory Buildings are those just behind the shipyard. I also have an early map showing them if interested

Finally managed to track down a few photos of Priory Buildings in the mid-60s, but there don't seem to be many others around.
