Who remembers Hursts Bakery on the corner of Parkfield Avenue and Claughton Road? It was still there when we went back around 2006. And the Sayers cake shops, the curry and chips that every chippie sold and all the good old English lollies and chocolate bars. My parents ran The Angel Inn in Beckwith Street, just off Conway Street, for many years. My wife went to Conway Street School and I to Hamilton Secondary. We were married at 16, came to Australia at 21 and had 4 children by 24. They weren't good old days but Birkenhead still was my childhood.
