    2 birds with one stone

    My ex mrs, a design artist used to work at Greenings in the early 70's. They produced screen printing rollers for the textile industry. They had a large format camera which they used in the process. When I say large, I mean huge - with film stock about 6 foot square. It must have cost a fortune.
  3. When I was taxiing for Farrels in 1970ish, I picked up a gang of lads from Birchley St in a minibus to go on a stag do to the Dixieland at Southport. Picked them up early hours next day - all pissed up of course. Coming back, they were all rowdy and jumping about so that when we crossed the canal bridge near the Morris Dancers pub, the bus was swaying that much that it wouldn't steer properly and we ended up in the pub car park. They all had a good laugh but were a bit better behaved after that. Anyroad, I got them back to St Helens and they gave me a good tip.

    Supermoon/Bluemoon Jan 2018

    Rob, you wouldn't have seen a 'blood moon' in Billinge last night. You can only see it during a Lunar eclipse and there was no eclipse visible in the UK. The red colour is caused by reflected Earthlight onto the surface of the darkened Moon during a lunar eclipse.

    The New WHERE'S THIS then? Thread!

    Isn't that the remaining gatepost on Clipsley lane that used to be the entrance to Haydock railway station?

    BJL, your lion is one of two on the gateposts of Haydock Medical Centre at the top end of Station Road. Surprised that our resident Statty Roader Joe90 didn't get that one.

    Around St.Helens

    Next time I come to St Helens, I'd best have a good look around while there's still something left of it.

    Bird Photography in Wales

    Great pics Rob - are the birds captive animals?
  12. Just been speaking to a relative who lives in Morgan St. Apparently he was alleged to have stolen a mini-digger a while ago and flogged it to gyppos. Unfortunately, said digger had a tracker and the police repossessed it and he ended up in Walton for a spell. While he was in nick, his girlfriend flogged his possessions to pay the gyppos some of the cash which they had paid for the digger. Remember a while back when someone was asking about moving to Parr, I told the story of how someone had rolled up at a house in Morgan St and proceeded to smash the window in the door. Turns out that the house was that of Mr Griffiths and the window smasher was a gyppo coming for his money. Apparently, he's normally a decent chap but it seems he was upset with GF for flogging his stuff. The rumour in the street is that the gyppos are still after him and he felt he'd be safer back inside so went on the rampage to deliberately get arrested.
