I think I have mentioned it before there are some more old pics of New Brighton on my flickrset
Quite true about the Catholic school nuns.. Made me Never want to be a Nun..
We'd missed the last ferry from NB and had to do that long walk along to Secombe to catch that one. She was caked in wet mud and soaked!!
This is the boating lake at New Brighton. It looks like it is gonna be a major building programme.
These were all taken through the fence. I had me litle mate with me, so didn't fancy climbing the fence.
Hello. have posted this link for the young at heart.
Enjoyed the funfair when young, and the dances on
a Saturday night when a teenager and beyond. Sad
day for New Brighton.
Spent a pleasant afternoon on the golden sands of New Brighton yesterday, nobody else there, the excavations must have put them off.I thought they were only using the lake area but it`s much bigger than that.Strolled along to Seacombe for the ferry to Liverpool then into the Midland for a pint of Theakstons,then home for my tea.It`s hard work being a pensioner these days.
I really do sympathise with you! but great photographs, many thanks.
I have to agree with you Gregs Dad! I don't know how I ever found time to go to work!!!!
I am extremely pleased to see that the redevelopment of New Brighton is beginning to - at last - gather momentum. All too often we've heard that 'work is due to start soon' only to then be told that things have been put on hold...
I have visited New Brighton on a couple of occasions this week and I've seen that the Marine Lake has been drained and that the site of the pool has been cleared. I will be visiting again over the weekend and I'll take my camera this time.
I have links here to two Facebook groups that are definitely worth looking at... one centres around photographs of old Liscard and the other looks at old New Brighton:
OLD LISCARD GROUP
OLD NEW BRIGHTON GROUP
I'm sure these will be of interest...
Nice one Ross. I'll have a better look at your sites when I have a bit more time.

Days of the Tower
MY MERSEY MEMORY is of a day in August 1907. The Lusitania had arrived from her builders, and ten units of the Channel Fleet, under Lord Charles Beresford, were anchored in the river. Here is one of them, H.M.S. Hindustan, passing New Brighton Tower.
