Many thanks to Graham Price for sending in the above image of the view from the corner of Deneshey Road, looking toward Hoylake. The post card is dated 1915.
The postcard is titled ‘Meols’ which is possibly questionable? I do know that Deneshey Road is (or was) classed by the Post Office as Great Meols, though Saxon Road (which is off Deneshey) is classed as Hoylake. I know that there’s the (awful, in my opinion) wrought iron Welcome to Hoylake sign before Deneshey Road but I don’t think that can be judged as a boundary marker.
What was that cyclists shop on the corner of Sandringham Avenue?
Note that the pillar box and the phone box haven’t yet been installed and you can see the old Hoylake YMCA in the background (RH side). Just out of shot on the left is Carlton Terrace and the site of Burnett’s Garage. And here’s a view from Chapel Road, looking towards to Meols.
Here’s a recent (2009) streetview:
