Are there any pictures of this hotel? In particular the revolving front door.
From the 'New Ferry Online' website............
NEW FERRY PIER c.1912
Looking back along the pier to the shore, we can see the Esplanade to the right, the ferry office building with the New Ferry Hotel beyond. The boy posing for the photographer (about 13 years of age) was from the training ship Indefatigable that was moored in the river. The pier, built in 1865, was the longest on the Mersey, stretching out 850 feet into the river. It was demolished in 1929, seven years after it was seriously damaged by a steamer.
NEW FERRY HOTEL c.1896
This is how the New Ferry Hotel opposite the pier looked at the end of the 19th century. It had been built in the days when New Ferry had been a "pleasure garden" for trippers from Liverpool who came over on the ferry. However, by the time this photo was taken it was looking rather shabby. It would be replaced in 1896-8 by the second hotel which many older people will remember.
