Another great photo from Syd Bird dating from the 1960’s and showing a number of sheds outside Hoylake train station. Syd comments:
…in the days when many commodities were transported by rail there was a little goods yard next to Hoylake station complete with it’s own sidings . I remember it mainly being used for coal which came in by rail and was then unloaded ready for pick up by the local coal merchants. They had their offices in the little wooden buildings you can see in the photo . You can make out the sign for Beddard’s and the one for Fred Davies. There was also a coffee stall type place there as well.
I did intend to include a photo of the vicinity as it is today, but when I went down there yesterday with my camera there were too many cars and vans in the way. Looks to me like the second on the right shed is what is currently Cabin Snacks …the little tea bar. I’ll update this post when I get a better photo.
