I was trying to find an image that would visually demonstrate the shrinking in size of Wirral Council as so many staff are being made redundant(including me!), and I wanted to find a 'Before' and 'After' picture of the Golden Tower in Cleveland Street.

It was severely bobbited after the Council realised that there was a danger that loose panels falling off might kill some of their taxpayers.

I would be very grateful if anyone can Upload, or link to, some pictures.

Thanks, Matthew

Thank you very much indeed Derek for those pictures, and all your other 'now' and 'then' photos, it really does come as quite a shock to be shown so clearly how much the urban landscape has changed in such a short time.

So many visual reference points have gone, in particular the pubs, so that where I could once easily navigate my way round town using the pubs as landmarks before finishing at The Old Colonial, I now get lost in some soulless car park trying to get a drink from a Pub that closed 20 years ago!

The decapitated remains of the orange building is about to be demolished around May this year (2017), however one of the ecological reports has suggested it shouldn't be demolished between 1st March and 31st August because of disturbance to breeding birds.
