At over 380 pages long, this book will bring back memories to the local residents, the day trippers and holiday makers who flooded into the area to enjoy all the attractions it had to offer such as: the largest tower in Britain, the pier, the theatres, the swimming pools, the fairgrounds, the parks, the busy shopping streets and all the other entertainments provided for their pleasure. The area of Wallasey has a recorded history that dates back to the days of Pirates Smugglers in the early 16th Century. Wallasey became more well known for becoming a haven for rich merchants who built vast numbers of mansion houses and its time as a popular seaside resort from the 19th century onwards. Wallasey has that much history for such a small area, that it would be impossible to detail it all in one book. This book captures all the important factors of Wallasey that made it so popular with tourists and why merchants flocked from across the land to build their mansions amongst others. Take a step back in time and remember Wallasey from days gone by.
