The Old Smithy, Moreton.
The old smithy which once stood on Birkenhead Road (now Hoylake Road) was opened in 1841
and demolished in 1950s due to a lack of horses in the area.  The workers in the Smithy below
from left to right are: Jack Peers, Thomas Mutch (my great, great uncle), Jack Rimmer, Albert
Parkinson, Frederick Rimmer and Jebson Rimmer.  Thomas Mutch was my Great Granddads
brother who used to live on Neatherton Road off Barnston Lane.  Interestingly Neatherton Road
was once known as Smithy Road.
