This pub in Heswall, Wirral, stands on the site of an old bus station garage , next to the new bus terminus.
It is named after John (Jack) Pye who started the local bus service in about 1916.
Older locals, when reminiscing about the early bus service, would talk of Johnny Pye calling for you if you overslept!
In 1924 he sold out to the Crosville Traction Company of Chester. The old Heswall bus station - pictured here in 1947, is said to be the first to have been built in this country.
