Brings back memories!

That’s where the barbers was !  On my way home from school on the 31 bus I would stop off here for a haircut (if family funds will allow). By the time I was a teenager this was the place where I could comfortably buy  “something for the weekend sir”.

When I tried that with my barber, he lent me his fishing tackle.

My mate Ken Duffield lived at Paddy Freelys mothers house on Huttingdon street

in the 60s. His mam Mrs Freely and her partner Wilf were the salt of the earth . Last saw paddy in 1971 before getting married and moving to Manchester

 

Can well remember the sausage and onion cobs at Nora's caf'e ,and the hot peas and

mint sauce for a tanner in Central market.

I can remember the Duffield family one of them was quite athletic,  chased me up st Ann's Well rd, me on a bike and him running. Luckily i eventually got away to survive the bashing that he was going to give me.
