Claughton Road, Birkenhead

A Memory of Birkenhead

I brought up 3 children in Cyprus Street and have loads of memories of the area before demolition of the house from St. Johns Street through to Charing Cross. This was a redevelopement area in the 1960s -70s. Many of us were glad to get away from the cellar houses with outdoor toilets and no hot water or bathrooms.
Across the road was a convent known as The Little Sisters of the Poor, next door was the Liberal Cclub where my sister had her reception in 1968.
I am looking for photos of that area for a blog I'm doing which involves with Out On A Limb project.
