  1. For Brianza - SS = Stan Gibbons as you surmise. Would be happy to swop stories of West Park

  2. peasley cross to bridge hotel doable cos I did it. Not often as watson street presumably pilks private property.

  3. Lambert Clayton

    I knew 'Shirt' & he did live in a pub in Parr. In 1967 I was working in T J Hughes Liverpool & 'Shirt' was studying to be a Ships Captain or maybe an engineer anyway we shared the car journey to Liverpool for a time . He was a handsome bloke (looking back) & I can imagine him in his ship's whites striding the deck and not being short of female admirers . RIP 'Shirt' .
  4. former NHS buildings Balker Drive - Rutland street.

    thank you robbob2010 & big-jeff-leo..............gateposts to The Gables at the top of Balker Drive are two turnpike road milestones. I have alerted the Milestone Society and they confirm they are genuine. Tom Preston local historian thinks they were originally top of Prescot Road (opp Bank Street ?) and near Atlas Street . I am trying to ensure their survival if site is to be flattened. First step is to find out who owns site. Stanley Stamp great photosrobbob
  5. Does anyone know the future of the former NHS site at Balker Drive/Rutland Street? Marvellous Victorian House ( maternity homeat one time ?) under threat ? All buildings boarded up at present.
  6. On Boundary Road.

    I lived at 230 Boundary Road and remember the two ladies in Creswell street and their pies . Almost whole potatoes (maybe not) but very nice all the same.
  7. Cold War at West Park

    Eric North and his bubble car brings back memories. Me and a mate were his pimps (unknowingly!) and I remember going to the flat above Burchalls. The two of us were never bothered by Eric and it was a lark to go & smoke ciggies in a teacher's flat but some third parties who went with us I think had narrow escapes. I heard about his downfall & I am sorry for the boy concerned ( who I don't know - it was way after my time) but nowadays Eric would have been sussed from theword go with his mannerisms and his demeanour . Looking back he sashayed down the corridors at times .He took games sometimes but was more the aesthete than the athlete. He just liked to hover at shower time. How the Brothers missed all this is a wonder but autre temps..........nowadays the boys parents would be looking for a big payout to say the least.For some reason I liked ( & feared - pupil/teacher fear , nothing more ) Doc Mullen the French teacher. As you say he was a bit crazy & we would always hope he would tell one of his long stories about fighting the Germans as a partisan. Not that we were interested or believed him but it was better then learning French.
