    Knowhowe,

    Silly me, I have avoided; 1,2,and 3 thus far thinking it was about America.

    With that pic of the 'half timbered' house it is little wonder that memories of these times are in black & white. Good pics though, thank you.

    Great pictures KH. The picture of West Kirby is outside West Kirby station. The Dee Hotel is on the left. West Kirby Concourse would be on the right. Can't for the life of me remember the name of the road. I'll look in me A-Z tomorrow.

    Not a lot of the places have changed. They still look remarkably familiar even after fifty years.

    Thank you. Lovely pic. The New Brighton ones will be particularly nostalgic for those of us born pre 1960

    Thanks again for the local expertise. Nice to know that these places are still so recognisable.

    I'll soon be posting a bunch of pics of whose locations i have no clue. I bet you will though...
