This part of Wallasey Village went from School Lane to the top of Leasowe Road and was known as Breck Road. Immediately on the right, and out of the picture, was the original 'Cheshire Cheese' tavern. In the distance the building jutting out with the gable end onto the road is Mrs Campbell’s sweetshop which stood on the corner of Folly Lane. The dressed stone cottages on the right were demolished in the early 1930s for road widening and those on the left stayed until the 1950s when they were all demolished and replaced by council flats.
