  1. Thank you so much for these replies, really appreciated! added 0 minutes later It is, thanks. added 3 minutes later Thank you!
  2. I'm trying to find any details I can about my maternal Grandfather, wondering if anyone can help. I know he was born in 1876, and died in 1947; the deceased search at St Helens Cemetery seems to be permanently unavailable at the minute. He married my maternal grandmother, Naomi Cheetham on 17th Feb 1924, and was a hearse driver for Dixons. I'm registered with Ancestry, but absolutely nothing is coming up for him. Any ideas anyone please? Many thanks
  3. We lived in Guernsey for three years 1997-2000. A lot of the old Guernsey people spoke of the time they spent in the UK during the war and were always very complimentary about the welcome they received here.
  4. Size of that big bugger "The Leader" Grunwald would indicate that the fat smug barsteward doesn't do much walking..

    The model shop people are referring to was more or less directly opposite Atherton St. I lived in Atherton St as a kid and bought loads of Airfix kits from there. They used to have some models made up on display in the window, and remember being really disappointed as mine were never anywhere near as good as them!

    Ben Brookes was one of my favourite shops as a kid - could spend ages looking at toys in there, remember the display windows that formed a little corridor to the front door. Wasn't there a fishmongers next door? Always remember the smell!
  7. My sister lived at 140 Greenfield Rd from late 70's / early 80's until about 1987. The paper shop was directly opposite 140, across Greenfield Rd. There was a card shop a bit further down Greenfield Rd, on corner with Tennis St, used to be set back a bit and there was a bus stop there - anyone remember what the shop was called? Then there was good old Wilf Young's paper shop a bit along Tennis street..
  8. First job as a kid was on the back of the "Pop Lorry" delivering pop - remember when they used to do that?! Then usual farm picking jobs - potatoes, peas, sprouts etc. Finally shelf stacking at KwikSave when I was in the 6th form at Cowley.
  9. have you ever tried a sausage naan with brown sauce? ;-)
  10. I think "old" medium is "new" thick and "new" medium" is "old" thin if that makes sense! As for "new" thin it's nearly transparent..
  11. Not to put too fine a point on it, I always thought it meant that once a woman was no longer a virgin, was there any point in worrying about it if you were a subsequent lover?
  12. The loaves themselves are so much smaller per slice too these days!
  13. Used to be loads of them - US Civil War ( with Confederate $ bills in as well as cards), numerous world war 2 series, Outer Limits, Man from Uncle etc etc Used to be a roaring trade in "swapsies" in the playground! Had a look at the prices they fetch now on eBay...wish I'd have kept mine!!
  14. That's cheating mally! Nothing better than rummaging through the bins at places like NALGO as a kid looking for one of the elusive packets you hadn't got LOL
