  1. Remember them both , Fredricks was the best IMO. Frederickss have a cafe near Chorley.
  2. Thanks Phyll
  3. Youve both got it tangled, the comedian was the fabulous Jimmy James, and his stooge was Eli Woods. Roy Castle was another one of his stooges. He didn't rattle off jokes like some of the modern ones. They were routines like the box and one were Eli asks Jimmy "are you putting it about that I'm barmy. My kind of comedy. and then there was Jimmy wheeler, Albert Modley, Norman Evans and many more. No smut just rib ticklingly funny

  11. That's right it was Kenwright's and they had a small shop. Dingies uncle who used to stay at their prefab was always asking me to go to the shop to get him five Woodbines, this happened several times so eventually I told him where to go. I was about 10 at the time. People used to take their radio accumulators for their radios to be recharged. It was for the grid leak circuit. This was improved by the addition of a grid leak resistor so the accumulators were obsolete in newer radios. There was pond on the corner of Kenwright's field were we used to play. Old Mr Kenwright pushed me into the mud when he was making us kids go away from the pit. All the kids hated him
  12. I think I remember Eric Paul did he live on Gartons Lane near the bridge.The houses he lived in were known as the old row they were the first houses built on what was Rigby Road before it was renamed.Was the building you mention on the wast ground in between Bently St and Cannon St.I remember that there was a large mound there as well
