Pablo,
I've got the same postcard "West Kiby looking towards Hoylake", while the wife & I were on a day trip out in the summer to West Kirby with the Grandson I took a similar shot to create a Now & Then photo DipStych, never got around to doing it here's my modern day pic. I'll have a root around for my Postcard and scan it and join together
Hope you don't mind me adding my pic...

It's the Crescent. Not sure where they get looking towards Hoylake from?

Yes, if anything the direction is toward the station and hill, the opposite of Hoylake.

Thank's Pablo,

Heres one I took the same day of West Kirby Railway Station as we were about to go & catch our train....

Taken fron the other end of The Crescent on Grange Road, turning left from where I took this pic would lead you to Hoylake, 1.4 miles to Hoylake Station.
