This is down as the Palace Theatre in New Brighton. It doesn't ring a bell with me, and I'm unsure if it is New Brighton

It would only ring a bell if you were over a hundred years old. It is New Brighton and has been published many times. The palace fairground was later on this site.

I believe the Dive Bomber which used to be at the bottom of the steps at the side of the ghost train
broke in two and I have heard that it had happened previously as well .

Broke three times to my knowledge. Must have been fun if you were a passenger!

The buildings in the photo occupied what is now the car park for the Bowling Alley. The old brick wall at the west end of the car park is actually the remains of the tall gabled building in the centre.

AS there's no colour pictures on this thread of The Palace, I thought I'd share this old postcard that's been in our family for donkeys years.

[Linked Image]

And a few weeks ago, we went to New Brighton with our son, daughter-in-law and granson, who's almost 3. As we were walking to the New Palace from the direction of Perch Rock, he pointed and exclaimed "birthday house" he was all excited about getting there and going in. Yet, he's never been there before. Odd, maybe an inherited memory? There's more to this world than we understand. My great grandmother was born in Fort Perch Rock in 1844 and lived her life in Wallasey, till she died in 1925.

Why didn't you pop into Fort Perch Rock and tell Dougy about your GG Gran being born there, Dougy the owner is always looking for History and stories of people who were at the fort.

It was the first time I've been back to New Brighton for years, I didn't know if anyone would be there, or even interested smile

My great great grandfather was a soldier, and stationed there with his wife who came from Shropshire. They had 4 or 5 children there, then moved to a house in Liscard and had the rest of their 9 children. I have no contact with any other descendants of them, even though at least one had a huge family.

Some great memorabilia...brings back fond memories of being a kid going to New Brighton for a day out with my parents.

I wish the council would consider spending money and developing New Brighton a lot more including another fair ground a pier for the ferry boats to come back to and another tower...Im sure it would be more popular than Blackpool which I think is a dump Its so run down now.

Fab thread.

Question if I may. I seem to recall being told that my parents met in the Palace Ballroom. This would be late 50's.

If I recall right, while the tower was gone due to an earlier fire, the ballroom was a relic of the original construction.

Is that right?

I vaguely recall being taken to what I think was what was left of the Palace fairground some time in the early 60's and then another fire happening after that such, that only the New Palace was left? Can anyone set me straight about that general era?
