Two children John and Jean. John went to the Wallasey Grammar School and I think that Jean went to the Girls High School. After Father John ...Read full memory

Mistaken Identity

This not "The Sandhills." This view is from the railway bridge overlooking Harrison Park, so named after a famous Wallasey family. The hills are man made, allegedly from the spoil from the building of the Wallasey tunnel. This is around the corner from another picture in the collection: St. Nicholas Church.

I Remember My Childhood Early 50s

I grew up in Seacombe in Wallasey, when your neighbours were like your family, you played out in the street till your legs fell off, top and whip, hoolahoop, kick the can, shammy knockanose, twist. We would save bonfire wood and hide it for Guy Fawkes Night. What memories, you got a swipe if you were ...Read full memory

Derby Pool

I have lived in The Village for 75 years. I used to play out with the Uptons and I lived in Lycett Road. I would like some info on my uncle, Mr Leslie Popham, who was killed when he dived into the Derby pool - I think that it would have been in the 30's. I have some letters dated 1936 sent by his brother to a girl friend in Fieldway.

Good Days

Left Wallasey in 1964 for Australia. Lived in Russell Rd and went to St Albans and St Hildas. Was also in the 28th Wallasey scouts. Those days are full of good memories. I have been back a few times most recently in 2006. If anyone with a memory sees this message I would love to share some memories. I am hoping to make the trip ...Read full memory
