    I am pretty sure that was the one where the man was killed as i think it was the only chinese restaurant in St Helens at the time.

    I also remember it just. I was at Laffack School and we all walked to the East Lanc. Rd. junction at Carr Mill to watch them drive past. Along wait for a small glimpse but still a locked in memory.

    Laffak School

    It had a stone plaque with AD 1861 on the front so I presume that was when it was built or officially opened.

    I think the Pennine Laundry was one block further down - corner of New Cross St & Duke St.

    TV series from years ago.

    Anybody remember a children's TV programme in late 50's called Gary Halliday. He was an airline pilot who had several encounters on his trips with his enemy "The Voice". A bit of a topical subject at the moment!

    Anybody remember Raymond Francis in No Hiding Place - Police series of the 1950's?
  11. Mr Anders went on to teach Maths at the Tech College. I think "Sid" Griggs also taught history. Taylor 1 was Ralph And Taylor 2 was Peter. I believe Mr Thackery retired after appearing in court. Mr Brookfield also taught art.
  12. Does anybody remember Roy Woods - sports teacher at Central Modern in mid 60's. Any idea where he went next if anywhere?

    Haresfinch / Island Brow

    Other shops at Haresfinch were Ashton's grocers and post office. A hairdressers also opened in the front of the house attached to Ashton's. There was also a grocers shop across the road from the Coop. Can't remember the name but I think that it closed in the mid 60s.
