  1. I remember the day the statue was put there as I was a pupil at St.Mary's convent , It must have been in the early 1950's.
  2. I think the lady doctor was Dr Roy who later moved to the Lingholme Health Centre.
  3. Before Dr.White it was Dr McNeally (not sure about the spelling) he was our family doctor from the early 50's. There was also Dr Thompson.
  4. I believe it was a house party in a tent in a back garden in Dunscroft Sutton, complete with DJ.
  5. Is there someone trapped underneath the Bren gun , or am I missing something else ?
  6. Saw Granada Reports the Chantry looked fantastic, what a transformation.
  7. Our divi number 32408
  8. My dad lived in Dentons Green Lane and was a friend of Geoff Duke , he used to take me to his shop in Greenfield Road when I was small.
  9. I was born there in 1947 and my brother was born there in 1951.
  10. Houses no 12 -20 are still standing. No 12 is the first house after the Hare and Hounds public house.
  11. My dad's first car was a Standard 8 colour Elfin Green Reg no DDJ 596 that must have been 1950's
  12. The only fishmongers I recall were Sheil & Sons 14 Warrington Road who opened there in 1949.
  13. The last house before Pennington Gardens was number 20, a little shop selling sweets and tobacco belonging to Mrs Edwards. I lived at number 12 next door to The Hare & Hounds (Tommy Halls), so the cottage numbers must have been 22 onwards,I think they must have been demolished in the mid 1950's.
  14. I remember my gran giving us Brimstone and Treacle on a Friday night which she always had ready mixed in a large jar, I suppose it was to clear us out over the weekend. We also had Radio Malt which came in a large brown jar and tasted rather nice. Does anyone remember Haliborange Tablets?
  15. Just remembered seeing Dustin Gee there, he did an impersonation of Cilla Black and looked and sounded just like her, I think he died in the mid 1980's. He had a TV show with Les Dennis.
