I still remember Grant's (chandlers), Roberts' Butchers (although it was Tom Roberts in my day) and Irwin's Grocers from my childhood (born '52)

Painting, surely? Looks too old to be a colour photograph, am I correct?

Many postcards were 'colourised' by simply painting in the negative.

It had a 'sensible' re-furbishment inside about 18 months ago and now has even more old photographs of the Pub and old Wallasey on the walls inside, including some framed original invoices from a centuary ago.

It still sells real ale - no nitro-keg or lager when this picture was taken - and is known locally for its mini beer festivals.

Any idea what the building is on the left?

Could that be the sweetshop / tobacconist / paper shop (not sure which!) at the top of School Lane?

Correct. Demolished around 1930-31 so even I do not remember it. There are lots of photos & paintings of the half-timbered place, and that next door

The black and white timbered building to the left was situated at No. 1 Wallasey Village, the cottage was once the 'Ring O Bells' and then turned into a house and a shop run by Jack Jones. The cottage was demolished by 1921 when the road was widened.
