Vine St was parallel with Brook St and Price St, having Vittoria St at the east end and Livingstone St at the west end. It faced Cottage St, which is still there.

Walker St is still there, too. Opposite the top of Downham Rd, across Church Rd, with 'The Beehive' on the corner.

Vincent St still runs from Grange Rd (Pykes corner) to Borough Rd, behind the old fire station.

Mill St, Derby Rd to Church Rd, one road north of Whitfield St. Opposite the end of Aspendale Rd to the west, and the end of Thompson St to the east. Nowadays it's cut short and turns into Whitfield St. The Imperial Hotel is/was on the corner with Derby Rd.

Warrington St runs from the junction of Wheatstone Lane, Church Rd and Holt Hill. It goes south from there and parallel with Church St (but to the east of it) and into Thompson St.

I'll have to think about the others, but I didn't know of any licenced premises in the roads I've identified.

Actually spelled Demesne St. Northwards continuation of Borough Rd. East.
A demesne was originally the land attached to a manor house and would usually be worked by the lord's tenants. The word is French; the English equivalent would be domain.

There is another Meadow lane which is the unmade road/track the runs off the top of Red Hill Road in Higher Bebington. It runs infront of Wishing Gate House. I dont think there was ever a Pub there though!

I corrected the spelling in case anyone wanted to do a search for it; anyone searching for your spelling wouldn't have found it. Accuracy is important in a History context.

Earl St was off St Pauls Road, according to the 1916 Birkenhead directory.
Also, there is still an Earl St between New Chester Rd and New Ferry Road, New Ferry. The directory only gives the one entry, which you can see in the extract.

Extract from Kellys Directory for 1902, below.

Note that some of the street names were changed.
Earl St used to be called Duke St, and is now Thorsway.
Blucher St used to be called Wellington St.
Pitt St and Brunswick St were not changed.

The comparisons were made using the 1875 Town Map (500) and the 1912 one.

The roads were to the south of St Pauls Rd, between the railway line and New Chester Road.
