Wirral Blitz @ 80

While people are familiar with the Liverpool Blitz of May 1941 but the first bombs on Merseyside fell on Wirral in August 1940.

We are thrilled to have been granted access to the Bomb Damage photographs at Wallasey Central Library which we are going to bring to a wider audience and preserve them for future generations.
