  1. Bridge St & Covered Market

    I worked at Greenalls as a lab tech in the summer of 1968. Travelled on the tanker making tests at the pubs/labour clubs equipment, amazing how much drinking went on.
  2. Official end date of WW1

    I think it's because armistice was declared on 11/11/1918 but officially the war didn't end until the Treaty of Versailles well into 1919. If my memory is correct the USA didn't officially recognize the end of the war until about 4 years later.
  3. cottage in Boardmans Lane

    I think I was 7, only there for one year, in 1957. My teacher there was Ms Gerrard
  4. Lewis Hamilton

    Congrats to him, 4th title, a British record and a British team - zoom zoom,

    Surely it's that the loading area is an open-sided platform, inviting a comparison to a parade float. That article says "The name is derived from the first floats, which were decorated barges that were towed along canals with ropes held by parade marchers on the shore." --KJBracey 07:03, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

    The building was used as a school by St Vincents, I was in class there for 1 year in the late 50s.

    Hate to say I always liked the Bottle & Glass - Triumph and MGB not exactly posers?
  13. Rainford Office Services?

    I used employment agencies to fill openings in order to get a 3 month evaluation before either offering the position as permanent or terminating the individual. It was actually lower cost to hire permanently due to the agency fees but obviously it carried higher risk.
