English Heritage web site www.britainfromabove.org.uk has some new photos of the area, by searching on Wirral you get some good photos, of the RAF base West Kirby and the Army site Upton plus some nice ones of New Brighton, also have a look at Burtonwood, the aircraft getting scrapped.

My favourite.

Love the ones of New Brighton before the dips and the reclaimed land. Nature wanted it back recently.

If you take a closer look they are making the dips in that picture

What splendid piers they were. Removed because they were declared unsafe. They still had to blow them up to remove them!

Had a great time looking at the 1946 photo's, the air raid shelters in Birkenhead park, the anti aircraft gunsite in Heron lane, the wood yard where Birkenhead police station opposite the town hall was to be built, still trawling though them.

I like this one, the gardens around the tower look like they had some great things in.

Think the top pic is around the 1930s as two things the big boat could be the Mauritania and the aircraft carrier could be the Ark Royal, the housing looks like the "courts" type flats, the petrol station on the a41 looks like an old 30s pic I've seen of the same, can't see what you mean on the other picture as the cream building was a flour mill with a walkway connected to the old buildings, the shipping parked up suggests it's the 70s when containers started up as all the ships look laid up and are cargo boats.
