I'm trying to find out where Atherton St Birkenhead was in the 1880s/1890s. From what I can find in the census records it was only short - 5 houses, a contractors yard and and a music hall. I'm thinking that this may have been the famous Claughton Music Hall which would put it in the Claughton Road/Grange Road area. Can anyone confirm or put me right? Thanks.

Tony Brabander I remember him well,just as an opening if I said planes,would understand????

this map is must be before 1960 as it shows the bombed field at Bright st,who could jump the furthest from Claughton rd end to the Bright st end over the 6foot sloping drop
