Description

This fascinating collection of over 250 old photographs of Bebington and its surrounding communities demonstrates very clearly the enormous changes that this area has seen over the last hundred years. This once busy waterfront town attracted industries that made the area world famous for its products, many of which became house-hold names, and for the novel way that some of these employers housed and supported their workers. The construction of Port Sunlight to accommodate employees of the Lever family was the most famous of these, but Bromborough Pool Village, built for the workers at Price's Candles, predated it and was probably the very first of its kind in the world. These old scenes will bring back strong memories for some and show new residents and a younger generation how their town used to look and how their predecessors spent their time, at work and at play. This unique collection of photographs, assembled by one of the area's best known local historians, embraces an area that includes Bebington and Bromborough and stretches from New Ferry and Eastham Ferry to Raby and Thornton Hough. It will delight all who would enjoy a nostalgic glimpse of this important part of "The Wirral" in an age now sadly gone.
