This photo has me stumped!
The above photo, of an unnamed location in Hoylake, was kindly sent to me by Melbourne, Australia resident Radhika Beswick. Where do you reckon this photo was taken? I don’t think they’re the cemetery gates …but that was first guess Somewhere around Kings Gap perhaps with Valentia Road in the background?? What do you reckon?
Radhika found some other Hoylake photos in an album that belonged to her Great Grandmother. Radhika comments: “It turns out that my Great Grandmother and her sister lived in Hoylake from about 1899 – 1910 (at the most), with their aunt, Mrs Erwin. They lived at 12 Marine Parade in Hoylake. I found the very same house is still standing on “north Parade” on Google Earth. I have a photograph of the house at approx 1906 here [along with some others]”:
