Lowry's refers to this pub in his novel; Ultramarine; "The puddles are lying at the foot of the Wallasey sandhills after the rain, the groundsel is growing on the vacant lot by the County Inn. At eleven-thirty Samuel Broster comes smiling out of the bar parlour, tying his apron." (Pg. 133).
The pub remains unidentified as no such pub existed in Wallasey in the late 1920's.
