When we used to go down there, as I say all the buses stopped right in front of the Pier Head. I remember there were big ramps going down and they were kind of floating. When you ran up them as a kid, stamping your feet, they’d shake. It was great, all the kids used to do that, dash up, the old people would be puffing and panting going up but the kids would all run up. I always remember there was always someone at the top selling rock, mint rock. All along the Pier Head there was a few of those ramps going down and when we went to New Brighton they’d be thousands down there, queues. You’d queue and sometimes there was that many that you’d have to wait for two or three boats to come back before you’d get on, there were crowds and crowds.
