Featured above is a super photo of Hoylake Town Hall decorated in readiness for the Queen’s Coronation in 1953 with various flags (of the Commonwealth?) and a crown above the front doors. What a shame those lovely old lamp posts are long gone …there’s a bus stop right outside now.
Time of photo: a quarter to six judging by the clock. By the way, has Hoylake ever had a different town clock? I guess that there might’ve been one at the station? Hoylake’s town clock seems to work pretty much which is more than can be said for the one at West Kirby station …that one wasn’t working for a long time (wasn’t it a landlord issue?). I can’t say I’ve noticed if the clock at Moreton Cross keeps time?
On an admin note, I must apologise for lack of posts recently. I seem to have been chasing my tail with one thing and another and don’t seem to have had the time to update the site. I’ve got an email mountain to conquer too (not something I enjoy much at all), so I’ve you sent me something and I haven’t replied, it’s me, not you.
And here’s a second admin note: I’m not absolutely certain yet, but it looks to me that some cheeky persons are pretending to be other people and leaving multiple comments about certain, contentious planning applications. Seems the site might need some “house rules” for comments like the BBC has. So that’s a bit of a pain.
