Someone had mentioned to me that there used to be a house(s) in Greenwood Road, in the location of where Meols Park is today. After asking for help, a couple of Hoylake Junction readers remembered an old house there and Syd Bird searched through his archives and found these old photos.
The above view is from the Dovepoint Road end of Greenwood Road and you can see the old house opposite St Andrews Church. The photo is from circa 1907, when the road was named Park Drive. The Church has obviously changed a bit of the intervening years.
The photo below shows the view from the other end of the road ie looking from Birkenhead Road. This photo is circa 1913 and we believe the road at that time was called Park Road. In this view it’s St Andrews that is most visible whilst the house on the other side of the road is somewhat hidden amongst the trees.
Another little mystery solved!
