Another photo (click for higher resolution version) of the old lifeboat station, featuring a chap named H Cummins of West Kirby with his donkeys and trap. The photo, kindly sent in by Julian Triggs, was taken circa 1912.
What I like about this photo is that it shows an old building on Alderley Road that I’ve not seen before. If I’ve got my coordinates right that building is stood where Cromer Court retirement apartments is today.
What was that old place?
