Thanks for all those-some excellent old views.Just one small query. The 1st one
is New Ferry i think, with that bit of shore known as The Gap . Road then rises
steeply up to the New Ferry pier entrance .
You mention some previous shots of New Ferry , I have not seen those yet !
My computer skills are NOT as good as yours ! I wonder how i get at those ?

Yeah. Great stuff. Thanks for posting them. I have some old photos of Rock Ferry / Tranmere / New Ferry. I will dig them out in the next few days and figure out how this scanner works and Upload them.

The Stone Pier you can see beside the metal one above, is still present at the end of Rock Lane East, beside tranmere oil terminal, in fact some of the metal pier is still there as well.

The pier is crumbling and is a sad site to see.
its in a neglected state sad really,
hope this new devolopment happens.
