  3. Surgeys Lane is in Arnold so I don't think you were there. However there is a Sturgeon Avenue on Clifton, and it's at the bottom end, so one of the first roads to be built - which would fit your early 50s memory. The shop on Varney Road was Marsdens and quite local to us. My mum would've been there a lot in the 1950s-60s, and in school holidays would be accompanied by me and/or my sister. I'll bet you spoke to us at some point.

  6. I recall down the 360.. around 1969 or thereabouts.. we suddenly had an influx of lads from somewhere 'a bit rough'. Hendon Rise rings a bell but I'm no longer sure. As I recall their club was closed for some reason. Anyway...later that night one of those lads hit a girl. Surprisingly.. that wasn't allowed in the 360..even back then.. So.. the villain was ejected in 'short order', after which all hell let loose. Yours truly.. never a good fighter.. was reluctantly involved as I tried to stop two idiots from killing Picko. I ended up going head first and backwards down three flights of

  9. As a kid I remember seeing my first black footballer. It was Lindy Delapenha playing for Mansfield Town in the late 50's. As a winger or inside forward he had a ferocious shot. Made over a hundred appearances for the Stags

  10. Been enjoying reading some of these older threads again..........this one ''Tribal Neighbourhoods''' i found interesting i reckon my age group (born 1945) missed the real 'Tribal' troubles that were mainly in the 50s with a long gap to the 80s....and my real times were 60s and 70s....never saw any bother down Locarno sherwood rooms or the Palais...we were only there for the girls and a Dance......
