Thanks for posting this Pablo42, I moved to Eastham in 1960 so it is interesting to see what the place looked like then. This will promote quite a bit of discussion when I show it to my sons and they try and remember the names of all the other shops. Thanks again!

A nice picture, about 15 years ago i bumped into a friend i had not seen for ages, he was very old by then, he told me he had recently visited Eastham for the first time since he used to visit with his soon to be wife in the 1930's, he told me his was very put out to find that the place he rememberd had been destroyed and wondered how "they" had got away with it over the years !.
By "they" i presume he meant Cheshire CC/Borough of Wirral and developers.
His comment's have often made me think what eastham actualy looked like in the 1930's, not the village but roads such as the A41, Easthem rake, Bridal road etc etc.

Another story i was told by someone else...sometime during or slightly before the second world war a mother took her eyes off her small child for a few moments, the child crawled into a pig enclosure and was eaten by the pigs, the person who told me this story said he was there at the time and could still remember the screams of the mother as she tried to do something !.
The incident so i was told was somewhere on Plymyard avenue, has anyone else heard this story or have anymore info on it ?.

Nice pic of Ferry Road. I happened to walk up the road last week. It's certainly changed! Although, there is still a small field next to the road. As I walked past it, something snorted at me. I really thought it was a pig, but when I looked through a gap in the hedge, it appeared to be some sort of podgy dog, perhaps slightly irked at me walking past.

I also walked past the shops in the original photo. That hasn't changed so much, seems instantly recognisable, because of the layout of the set-back shops. Also similar layout to another set of shops near Allport Rd, Brombourough. Every time I walk along that strectch of the A41, the scenery seems to repeat. laugh

Funnily enough I also walked the length of Plymyard Avenue that day too. Didn't see any pigs or anything, but did notice a 132kV distribution pylon very conspicuous by its presence sandwiched between two semi-detached houses.
