The Wallasey 79

A tribute to the New Brighton tram line has been painted onto the back of the New Brighton Hotel. The ‘Wallasey 78’ was a tram which used to run down Victoria Road and past the hotel. For this mural from local artist ‘Art by Alexander’, a fictional tram, ‘The Wallasey 79’ has been painted. It is sitting at the equally fictional stop of ‘Hope Street’ yet remembers the real route which ran nearby. Sitting inside are a few local famous faces. New Brighton’s founder James Atherton is portrayed as the conductor and local war hero Ian Fraser is shown sitting next to Wilfred Owen in the window.
