Here are a couple of follow-up photos that you might like to see.
To begin with here’s a view of Sandhey slipway from 1967 kindly sent in by Julian Triggs. Please feel free to leave a comment if you recognise a car or yacht! Take a look at this photo for an older scene
And here’s the view along the promenade looking toward Meols.
Next up is another photo of the ladies of Melrose Bowling Club:
Mike Wilson says he believes this was published in the Advertiser or Birkenhead News in 1971:
back row- Mrs. G. Hall, Mrs. A. Neil, Mrs. B. Alsop, Mrs. E. Smith, president, Mrs. M. Smith, chairman, Mrs. V. Couchman, secretary, Mrs. S. Black, front row- Mrs. R. Worth, Mrs. G. Taylor, Mrs. E. Roberts, captain, Mrs. M. Scott, vice-captain, and Mrs. I. Wilson.
Melrose Ladies ‘A’ bowls team have won the Birkenhead and Wirral Ladies Bowling League title again.
In all they have won the championship cup seven times and have been runners-up once. This is the fourth consecutive year they have been champions.
In addition to this, one of their members, Mrs. May Smith, has won the New Brighton Ladies bowls cup which was competed for by more than 500 ladies in northern England. It is believed that this is the first time it has been won by a Hoylake player.
