The Great '68.

I never used the Waterway St chippy, but that one on Arky used to be open until after midnight. Just right for soaking up the ale on the walk home.

Re the chippy at the top of Arkwright Street,I remember that chippy well, used to have a bag of chips in there waiting for the girlfriend who worked at Midland station, just over the road. I remember there were adverts for Spanish holidays on the walls. Maybe bull fights too.

Good photo, good memories !

I worked at the Midland Station, for W.H..Smith and Sons whilst still at school. Used to run the kiosk on the front of the station from 5:45am to 8:30am weekdays selling newspapers and magazines. Then run to school at Mundella. Kept me fit.

Not so great in '68...Martin Luther ..slain by by the same hands that did for Bobby, John and many others.

Marvin performs Dick Hollers lyrics quite beautifully.

'Spite being young..recall 1968 well...

this is in particular as it made our dog howl.

The Move did it for me as well...the new 10 pence coins popped up.
