I spent a lot of my early life in Brook St, my auntie lived in a 2 up 2 down with the good old outside toilet, I walked up and down it daily on my way to Cathcart St School from our house in Watson St. The pic in the link looks familiar, I think its Brook St.

I lived on the corner of Cleveland st and Vittoria st,our number was 303,as the numbers started closest to the town hall your Grand parents proberbly lived at the other end of Brook st,say from Vittoria st right up to Duke st...The street is still there but no houses left standing...From when I was a kid in the 50,s there was only about 8 or 10 houses in the part from Vittoria st to Livingstone st after that....Nothing but the Birkenhead brewery on one side and Marchbanks wood yard on the other...I think

Thanks for that spider, I have tried to find Brook st but so far haven't , maybe I'm going the wrong way! I had my first job in Lord St, going by the maps it's somewhere near there? I know the houses are no longer standing but I would just like to see were they lived!

Chris, the image below is the end of Brook St, looking from Duke St, Pub on one corner, car wash on the other, don't know about the Pub being open, but the car wash is still operating.

Lord Street is down the other end (Town Hall/ Hamilton Square way) of Brook st

If you have access to a computer/internet just google Brook st, Birkenhead. the road itself could have been over a mile long.
Berts pic tallies with the 2nd map I posted
Duke st is where Birkenhead Park station is if that helps

from 1916 street directory odd numbers go up to number 461
