Caption for Birkenhead, Ferry And Bus Terminus 1964

This busy scene was taken at the Woodside ferry and bus terminus. The original 'ferry across the Mersey' was operated by monks from Birkenhead Priory, a little way to the south of the present terminus. The buildings that are shown here have all been replaced in recent years - and so have the buses!

Any One Remember Him

My husband was Tony Nelson.One of the 9 Nelson children born in Vernon Place Birkenhead.He was born in 1939 and lived his entire life in Birkenhead.He spent his youth going out in New Brighton and Liverpool.He was well known in the pubs around Birkenhead from playing darts and quizzs.He worked at the old Lawries club as a doorman.The old club like so many of the pubs he used to tell me about are of course no longer there.As I am from Yorkshire he used to tell me stories of the old Birkenhead and its characters.He worked as a insurance man and knew a lot of the old Birkenhead families.Tony died on the 3rd of January the day after his 76th birthday.Out of the 9 children just one remains now.I find myself thinking ...Read full memory

71 71a Heswall Busses

Holthill School/St Joseph's Youth Club, Tranmere

I lived in Wallasey but went to school in Birkenhead in the mid 1960s. I have very fond memories of the area. I made many friends at St Joseph's youth club. I remember two brothers - Dave and Steve Jones - who lived on the Woodchurch Road, next door to the Swan Pub. Also Anthony and Martin Kelly (again brothers who lived in Tranmere . Does anybody else remember them or me? My maiden name was Anne Kelly.

Great Memories On The Number 77 Bus

Oh, yes, the number 77 bus, I met my husband on this bus. Seems it was a magic number for meeting future husbands. We used to get off at Granger Avenue, opposite The Swan. We had many wonderful trips on this bus. After going to the pictures at night, we would have hot dogs upstairs in the front seat. There was a place at Woodside that made the best. Even way before then, I would come home on the 77 bus, from Singleton Avenue, after being at school, age 5, goodness, now you would never let your 5 year old travel that far on a bus. Thanks for the great memories number 77.

77 Bus.

Memories! Memories!  I just logged on to the site and how interesting to see the old 77 bus at Woodside Ferry.  My husband to be at the time worked on the Birkenhead Transport .  I met him on the 77 Bus route going through from Woodside to Upton.  We married in 1963.  Fond Memories.  Still together 49 years down the road.
