The One-Eyed City

Birkenhead Town Hall, which is now a museum.

Ihave lived in Birkenhead all my life and have heard it called the “One-Eyed City” more times than I can remember; but I have never known why. I have asked people in the past and been told a multitude of reasons but none of them really ring true. If you are in Liverpool and look over the water towards Birkenhead, you can only see one face of the Town Hall clock so Scousers started calling it the one-eyed city. The old Birkenhead Trams only had one headlight on the front was another reason given. I have also heard so many jokes about it but have never been given a definitive answer.

With Christmas now almost here, it is sad to hear that many people who live in our home town of Birkenhead are having to rely on food hand-outs over the festive period. Luckily, a new scheme is starting a fight-back hopefully with the aim of wiping out hunger from our town. The “Feeding Birkenhead” scheme is the result of a national parliamentary inquiry into hunger and Birkenhead MP Frank Field is starting the scheme by bringing together local churches, charities and schools as part of the campaign.

We are all disappointed today at the news the Pacific Road Theatre is set to close. Wirral Council has announced that the theatre has booking up until the end of this year but they will not be booking anymore. The Theatre and adjoining Transport Museum and Tramway were put up for sale earlier this year but no suitable operators have been found.

Mindless Thugs!

The Bears have been shocked by the mindless thugs who have been out rioting and looting around the country. What started out as a demonstration against the shooting of a man by the police in London has grown into mindless violence and thuggery. The youths on the streets who are attacking people and damaging private property are not doing it to demonstrate against the police or the lack of employment, they are doing it to loot and get something for nothing – it is as simple as that!

Wallasey Pool was a natural tidal inlet of water that separated the towns of Wallasey and Birkenhead on the Wirral. Originally flowing directly into the River Mersey, it was converted into the sophisticated Birkenhead Dock system from the 1820s onwards by land reclamation, with the main portion of the pool becoming known as the Great Float. In 1933, with the exception of a small lake, the head of Wallasey Pool at Poulton was converted into Bidston Dock.

Edward Bear is always the clever Bear, so while most of the Bears are still lazing around suffering from Man-Flu he has been up and about researching on the Internet. Over the Christmas period he has been looking into the history of Birkenhead where The Bear Sanctuary is located. He was shocked at his findings. According to some Web Sites; Birkenhead is…
