This picture is of a wall adjacent to Riverside Bowls and Lazerquest. Anybody know why there are jutting out bits?? Did it support something at one time?

Corbels, used as supports(brackets)

Those in the photograph look as if they have had beams or joists resting on them to support a floor/ceiling. Probably sandstone, not overly decorative but decorative enough to remain on show. Likely to be twice as much again of what's showing inserted into the wall/ pillar.

Wilkies Circus was on that site in '50's
but I think those features are part of an
earlier building - possibly part of the
Old Palace (Theatre etc.)

See here under "Palace" for a bit more History:-

The Palace was a bit further along, Wally.
I'm not sure what the building with the corbels was, I reckon it was about where the google map is marked red. Front on Marine Promenade?

Possibly Bert, but your map is showing New Brighton Pool
top left. I was looking at the older 1899-1900 1:10,560 OS map
of Cheshire (on Old Maps website) and that showed the
Old Palace extending as far as between Windsor St/Waterloo
road. So I thought that the wall in question could be the
back wall of some part of the Old Palace complex which seems
to have had several different components. I'll see if I can find
a larger scale map on line.

You could be right, Wally,

Maps 1909 and not sure what the other one is.

I think this spot between Windsor St and
Waterloo Rd could be the back corner of the
Old Palace. The old wall runs from the New
Palace along the back of the Bowling Alley
to this corner.

Thanks Bert that's a good map.
Cross posted with my Google Earth photo
view - I was surprised to see the back
wall still intact!

That's it Wally, Old and New, nearly 30 years between maps.
