Thanks for the fantastic New Brighton taken from the Motor Park 12 August 1936 picture. I wonder if the catapiler ride in the foreground is the same one that was there in the last days of the Tower 66,67 68?

It almost certainly was but I think they put a shelter over the platform at a later date.

This is actually a wartime ariel view of Manor Rd / Belgrave St., the large building at the right hand side is the old 27 Club [Monkeyhouse now ?] with the Grosvenor Ballroom above & the Unitarian Church next to it .

The large circular structure on the corner of Belgrave St. is probably a temporary water tank .

If you just under the bridge on the left,you will see an Austin 7 Ruby.This must have been owned by somebody who worked nearby.
I used to see this parked in exactly the same spot when returning home to Wallasey, after hitching from where-ever I was working in about 1967.I often wondered what happened to it.

As this thread seems to have come to an end, I'd like to thank ZipperClub and all the other contributors for their efforts. I have enjoyed reading the posts and collecting the Wirral photos I didn't already have, especially the one’s of the New Brighton tower and the fairground in its grounds... Thanks again all and have a Happy New Year....
