  1. I used to love reading this and trying to speak the dialect as it was written. Didn't need much to make us smile when we were kids.
  2. The wooden roller coaster aka "The Bobs". I went on it it in 1962...never again, scared me to death.
  3. I was in there in 1956. Hadn't a clue where I was going or where I was when I got there and no-one told me I would be in there for over a week and not be able to see any of the family. First time I'd ever stayed away from home and it felt like I'd been sent to an orphanage.
  4. Anyone know where I can get my tree printed locally.
  5. We've never been disappointed with meals at Clock Face Hotel.
  6. Someone was asking to see a picture of the Mining School. I think this is it further up than the old Central Station
  7. I didn't pass the 11 plus and went to Central Modern. Is this where you mean superbos.
  8. My ancestor William H. Hill lived at number 10 Sandfield Crescent in 1891 and he was a Chemical Labourer.
  9. Joan Pennington wrote a book around 1996 called "Moss Bank, The Village" and in it she named a few of the pubs landlords as follows:- Henry Wilkinson 1834 Mary Ashcroft 1871 Joseph H. King 1891 Edward Taylor pre 1924 Elizabeth Taylor 1924 George Pridham ? Anthony Twist ? and she said the Landlord at the time of writing the book was Frank Connolly (There was a Frank Connelly who had the Swan in town in the 1980's)
  10. Appleton's is on the right just after the white building which was Hall's Solicitors
  11. Eric Latham (Saints) married Doreen Fairhurst they owned Kerr's Pop factory. Doreen was the daughter of Mr and Mrs Fairhurst who used to own Barton's Pickles. I believe Mrs Fairhurst was the daughter of Edmund Barton the original Barton family. Doreen's brother Eddie Fairhurst took over Barton's Pickles when their father died and now Eddie's daughter runs it I think. I worked at Barton's in the office in the 1960's.
  12. All my ancestors on my side were baptised, married and were buried from Lowe House church and went to Lowe House School as well including me. Even though I don't attend the church now (Lowe House school put me off being a Catholic) I still feel a closeness when I see the church. Miss the old altar though and the marble railings.
  13. I've noticed lately that most Chemist's seem to shut on a Saturday. Is no-one ill on a weekend.
  14. We used to go to Liverpool on Thursday's
