    Default Can anyone name this building?

    According to the label, this is Argyle Street, Birkenhead 1941 (RAC)

    My first thoughts were that it was St Paul's Church that once stood on Argyle St. at the corner of Market St. however I can't be 100%. I can't seem to find anything about Erlac Billiards Hall, nor that Der(went?) property in the background. I also have no idea what the RAC means written in brackets on the rear of the pic. Does anyone have any ideas of what this blitzed building could be?

    I've found that DERWENT (TV sales) was operating from 16/20 Conway st in 1964(Kellys)

    A bit more info (Kelly's 1964)

    Where Argyle st and Conway st meet,

    69/ 71 Argyle st were Income tax offices.
    73 ........................B'head Co op funeral dirs.
    75 ........................W.H.Smith, wholesale news supplies

    72 .........................Pete William Collins (Vet)
    74..........................National Coal Board retail sales office
    76..........................Conway wine Stores
    78..........................DER television rentals

    Continuing across is Argyle St South but I can't recall any building that looked similar to your photo.
    Google maps show these buildings have gone, sad. Good luck with your search DKL.
    Regards,
    Chas
