I stumbled upon a really poignant photograph the other month that I’ve been wanting to share with you all. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to contact the actual owners of the photo to ask for permission to publish it here. But if you click here you’ll see the photo in a new window.
Taken on November 11th, 1918 (Armistice Day) it shows the convalescing servicemen gathered together for the Armistice in Hoylake. Note the poor chaps all bandaged-up. Another example of Hoylake being chosen as a place to improve ones health – then again, after being in WW1 anywhere would be a significant improvement.
Where would you say that photo was taken? I think it’s either Kings Gap or the top end of Market Street …I can’t make my mind up though I favour Kings Gap.
