Many thanks to regular contributor Charles Morris for sending me some great photos of two old Hoylake pubs. The photos were taken in about 1960/61 just before the pubs were demolished.
The photo above is of the old Anchor Inn which stood pretty much where the Blue Anchor is today. To the right you can see a shop front that today is the Hoylake Fisheries fishmongers. In this previous Friday Photo from January you can see another view of the pub.
Below is a fantastic photo of the old Lighthouse Inn. It was located right where the entrance now is to the car park in front of Holy Trinity School. To the left was an old telly/electrical shop by the looks – today it’s Mansells Antiques. Was that a model lighthouse on the roof? That young lad stood outside is none other than Mr Charles Morris!
