This view of Weston (NOT Western!) Point, Runcorn , was taken about 1930. In the distance can be seen the Castner Kellner factory of the Imperial Chemical Industries Ltd. In front of it is the (then) almost-new housing estate which the firm had built for its employees. The older original part of the village lie just off this picture, right-centre. The "hill" on the left of the photo is the remains of a waste heap from the worked-out sandstone quarries which lie behind it. The prominent road is Weston Road. running off to the left towards the village of Weston. Up to the end of World War Two, Weston Point remained isolated from Runcorn by green fields. No idea what happened to the River Mersey estuary on the old postcard picture. It almost appears as dry land, but it certainly wasn't.
Card was posted on 28th August 1931, to Mrs Townsend, 2 Oak Cottage, Stapleton, Dorrington, near Shrewsbury. The card read, “Dear H, I hope you are not thinking of coming over today as I have to go into town. I shall come in on the twelve bus. If you should be in town hope the children have enjoyed their holidays with love from Edie.”
