Cathcart Street

A Memory of Birkenhead

Hi Mike, I seem to remember a boy that lived at no.1 or no.3 who had ginger hair; he was a friend of my brother Dennis. Can't remember the name of the sweet shop but have been searching for pictures of Hope Street or Cathcart Street. Dad used to go in the pub on the corner. Can't remember names of people, there where that many of them. Cheers, Stan Baker.
