You would have to do a 180 degree turn to face Cokhedge, that is definitely Warrington baths chimney, see below.

by Guest....I have just seen the questions regarding the area near the Old Fire station but the picture has been removed, however the pub was a Walkers pub called the Crown INN, the fire station was on Queen street at the junction with Golbourne Street. The open potato market was in Queen street, and there was an entrance to the covered market in Queen street, with Davies and Northhamptons stalls just inside this entrance. The chimney was over the boiler house that supplied the heat to Warrington Baths. The school was Heathside Junior school the infants school was in Rolleston Street. There was also St Albans Junior school in King Street off Golbourne street across Cambria Place. The land adjacent to the Fire station was used by Silcocks Fairground and for Fire engine displays. I was born in the house next door to the Crown inn and know this area very well.
