1966 – the year that England won the World Cup, Pickles the dog found it again (full story) and Hoylake got it’s current telephone exchange.
This plaque is fixed to the front of the Hoylake telephone exchange. The nondescript building is situated on Birkenhead Road next to the entrance of Queens Park. I happened to be passing one day and had a closer look at the plaque. I presume it indicates that the building was constructed in 1966 – but was there an older building there beforehand or was the local telephone exchange somewhere else? The exchange is still in use today of course and BT staff still park their vans around the back.
