As of 1930 there seemed to be a single male on top of the Hotel Victoria site crane next to the control room. There is a heavy police & fire attendance. Could be seen clearly from Albion Street which was blocked off by police.

Can you confirm where this is? Albion Street in Birkenhead, or the one in Wallasey ? Thanks

I suggest anyone standing there watching this goes home now. I seen a lad fall, repeat fall years ago in Lairds from a similar height and its not something that leaves your mind quickly.
