As we’ve had some discussion over the whereabouts of the jetties on the beach here’s another old photo showing the Trinity Road jetty. Ian Davies kindly sent in the photo of a launching of an old Hoylake lifeboat in the 1930s. The jetty can obviously be seen in the background, behind that impressive looking tractor.
Ian Powers suggests that the jetty was quite a substantial structure and was quite possibly made from old railway sleepers. Ian sent in this small photo taken in the 1930s of family relatives posing on the jetty. From the angles of these two photos it looks like the jetty went out along the sand quite a bit.
