More Info: -  A dark, excellent quality sepia coloured image of the incoming tide at Parkgate on the Wirral, Cheshire. It appears to be a wet & wintry day - there may be just two people braving the elements. Parkgate is on the South West side of the Wirral on the tidal estuary of the River Dee. The river on the other side of the Wirral is the Mersey. As of today (2017) a view from the same window today would show mainly grass salt marshes with just the odd small rivulet in view. The whole estuary has been gradually silting up since Roman times, but when seasonal high tides arrive there may be days when the tide once more comes up to the sea wall, thus drawing thousands of visitors.
