This is my first posting, so please excuse me if I'm repeating earlier stuff. I am trying to build up a database of photographs of old street furniture etc (predominantly grids as cast iron lasts a long time!) bearing the names of the extinct arms of local government and utilities in the area. I have all the immediately pre-1974 Councils, although I would like some with 'Hoylake UDC' rather than 'HUDC', but would like to know if there are any Bromborough UDC/Higher Bebington UDC/Lower Bebington UDC/Bebington UDC (1934-1937 before Bebington became a Borough)/ West Kirby & Hoylake Urban District (1894–97).
Also there are some very old water utility pieces with 'BWW' and 'TWW' on them; I am assuming these are Birkenhead Water Works and Tranmere Water Works respectively. Can anyone confirm this? Does anyone know of a source giving the chronology of the water supply companies and their catchment areas?
