An 1887 Cycling Sketchbook
Page 6: Our Easter Tour: First Day 5 April 1887
During this four day tour Walt and Amy visit relatives in Cheshire. On the first day they begin by going to the ferry ('stage' = landing stage) to cross the Mersey from Liverpool to Birkenhead. where, after calling on relatives and Aunt Tobin, they ride down the Wirral peninsula to Chester via Arrowe and pass the then Shrewsbury Arms near Neston (see map below). The second inn 3 miles further on was possibly the Yacht.
