Many thanks to all of you who knew what Jessies Yard used to be – see I told you you’d know! Thanks for getting in touch either by email or by leaving a comment – it’s great to hear from you. Great to hear from Syd Bird the great grandchild of Jesse Bird, who left a comment . I’ll check the drainpipe mentioned – just in case those initials are still there.
Interesting to hear that the horses used by Jesse Bird were also used to pull the lifeboat out to sea. Thanks to Sue Vine for alerting me to this Old Wirral article – take a look at their Hoylake section too, they have some great old photos along with a few articles of local and a wider Wirral history.
By the way, if you leave a comment here on HoylakeJunction.com and want to know if other readers have commented too, then tick the box underneath the comment box that says “Notify me of followup comments via e-mail” – that way you won’t miss anything !
