I heard that there was once a murder of a woman upstairs at the George and Dragon Pub, Argyle St. Birkenhead. Apparently it was sometime in the 1950s but not for sure. Does anyone have any memory or info on this event? smile

Just before Christmas 1971, or possibly 1970. It was the front page story in the Echo.

As I said, the landlady stabbed her husband to death, not vice-versa. See this thread ...
