This is a photo of the munitions workshops that were under the Palace indoor fair in New Brighton. If I'm not mistaken, this later became the Creep nightclub

Part of it did indeed become The Creep Inn. There is some video of a tour guided by Dave Wilkie on "You Tube" if you have not seen it before.

I have got a similar photo as my mum worked there during the war. I sent a copy to the Memories Corner in the Wirral News but they weren't interested !!! This was a couple of years ago when they were asking for memories of the war.

Notice the flourescent lights? Apparently this was the first use of flourescent lighting in the UK, with the lights having been brought in by the Americans to assist the working enviroment.

Hi carol, welcome to WikiWirral.

If you want to Upload a picture, you need to know where it is on your pc first. I use a seperate folder that holds the copies that I want to Upload. Check the file size, as there is a limit of 2 Mb per Upload. Somewhere between 100kb and 400kb usually produces a decent image. Even though it may not seem to appear full sized at first, using control and + will enlarge it for the reader.

Now, go to the 'reply' button on the topic you are replying to. (Note, you can't post a picture with the 'quick reply' box.) When you hit 'reply', a pop-up screen appears for you to enter your text. When you have done that, look a little below the text box and it says 'Upload Manager'. Clicking this will bring up another box, with instructions on how to use it. From here, using the 'Browse' button in it, go to the folder and file that you selected to Upload, just like in Explorer, and click the file. It will be added, and you can add a caption, choose to add another etc. When done, click done. Preview your message if required (note - pictures not shown in preview), then post it using the 'Submit' button as normal.

Hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Loved the video Nelzy. Reminds me of the old Cavern.

Thanks Norton for your advice. Will see what I can do.
