Perhaps the bogs at the Harrison Drive end of the prom had a reputation even then.

To see the masses of people and the stalls etc. on the pier in the second poster, is amazing. Morrisons, lido, theatre or bowling, will never be able to recapture the tourism of those days ever again. What a sad waste of a prime spot.

A popular advert on the front dash of the trams and sides of buses & trolleybuses in 1960's Glasgow was "Go Gay at Butlins". No further comment !

come on Pinz, even you are old enought to know the word Gay had an entirly different meaning in the 50s&60s. Not allowed in this day and age to say the word we all used to describe the said people in those days.

It has a list of B&B's and Hotels in the area and next door to me in Monk road was a B&B. The Red House Private Hotel Warren Drive would set you back 5 1/2 gns. per week full board. There's a street map of Wallasey, and the ferry cost 1/- or 1/6 return if you travelled with a child. Admission to the pier was 3d. Floral pavilion cost cost, 3/6 - 2/6 - 1/6 ..

I bet the Heritage Centre on Victoria Road would like to see that booklet (unless they already have one of course). Ah, those were the days, eh? In some respects, anyway!

Hi Tilly. My parents ran a guest house in the late 50's and 60's on Ormiston Rd. It was called 'The Merivale'. Is it in there?
