I have been looking at wonderful photographs of Birkenhead 2020, a marvellous piece of work.
I found Edith Faulkner’s house at 18 Bessborough Road and knew exactly where I was ! Edith, mother’s great friend, came from Wem in Shropshire.
Should have remembered that Miss Bullock died in 1936, she asked for my mother to nurse her in her final illness, something that Mum was proud of.
Now, I must look around Birkenhead School where my brother was educated and an area that he loved. I’ve seen the Holy Name where his funeral was held 9 years ago.
Birkenhead looks better in these photos than when I was growing up in Willowbank Road in 1940s / 50s. Thank you again !Ann Green VIA EMAIL

Love this so much, thanks from the bottom of my heart. Haven’t been back since 1973. I was stationed in Birkenhead 70-73 as a young copper before transferring to the Met to be with my family . First thing I looked at was Mortimer Street and memories came flooding back. Good times living in the area in the 60’s until I left. Will never forget Birkenhead or the wonderful people. Thank you again and well done . History will thank you as wellmike stamp VIA FACEBOOK

Thanks for keeping Wirral History alive. We take for granted present day not until we are mature do we reflect on our past. Looking at your photos trigger fond memory’s of were I was born and bred, friends, buildings, places were I use to hang out and most of all spending time with me mates going on days out all over the Wirral and Liverpool. Thankyou I appreciate what you do.Janet Jones via facebook

Gentlemen, thank you so much. Your photographs have brought back my young years and especially my teenage years. Growing up in the North End was not easy, but it did shape me to be the man I am today. I went to Tollemache rd school where I learned to love Art, Williamson Gallery was my favorite place to visit. I went to Birkenhead School Of Art were I grew to love Art, in later years the old masters. I progressed into classical music,Opera.. and ancient civilizations. The photos have rekindled so many memories
