    RIP Denis Whittle

    Denis Whittle. I remember my Dad used to enjoy reading his column in the local paper. https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/17372862.mourners-asked-to-wear-red-in-memory-of-denis-whittle/ https://www.saintsrlfc.com/2019/01/05/farewell-denis-whittle/

  8. I love Llanddudno, once stayed at The Grand Hotel on a rainy stormy night and had a great time. Golliwogs are not PC these days Hort. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golliwog
  9. I love this photo, I often think it looks like me and my older Sister, but it's not as it says in the link when and who it was. https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/977885.gazing-at-the-chicks/
  10. History of Glassmaking in Sutton on this link. https://www.suttonbeauty.org.uk/suttonhistory/industry1/
  11. Yeah I was just about to say that Hort already said that earlier in the thread, anyway this is about all I could find online re Nevins & Manor Street. https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/6675142.Stirring_memories_of_oldtime_Sutton/ https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/coffey_time/9266117.now-thats-what-you-call-a-delivery-van/ I have an interest in Nevins because I think I remember my Mum once worked at one of their shops amongst all the other shops she worked all over St. Helens! I think I mentioned this man before, Charles Nevin descendant of the Nevins, he mentions them in one of his books, which I haven't bought yet, but from the bits I've read it looks good. https://books.google.com/books?id=5BBsCiUH-xwC&pg=PA24&lpg=PA24&dq=Nevins+Grocery+Stores,+St.+Helens,+Lancashire.&source=bl&ots=egBqsfU1UF&sig=iEf6WEQXJ94HTHqemWm6C9YEPP4&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjkr6rk-tjfAhXuY98KHT7uBOwQ6AEwDXoECAIQAQ#v=onepage&q=Nevins Grocery Stores%2C St. Helens%2C Lancashire.&f=false
  12. Does this help? "The 1928 map also shows the recently added Tramway, to the south of the L & M line on a small embankment to carry workers from Helena Road near St Helens Junction to the pithead." http://www.8dassociation.btck.co.uk/TheLancashireCoalfield/NCBBoldColliery
  13. No I don't remember that place, just Clegg at the Theatre Buildings and yes Alan he was connected to the Saints.
  14. That was Clegg aka The Butcher, gave me a fear of Dentists for a long time till I had a great Dentist in the Prudential Buildings who was much more gentle.
