Oh the good old days !!!
From 1938 to 1976, when we emigrated to Canada, I remember the places talked about in the other peoples memories having lived in Fitzgerald St until they tore it all down. I remember Paisley St, Grafton St, Earl St, Stirling St etc. When I was old enough to drink we used to go to the Princess Alice pub in Grafton St.
Other memories were the Western cinema in Park Rd, trying to sneak in after the first house emptied, and also playing "tin can squat" when we didn't have a ball.
Riding up and down Manchester Rd on the front upstairs of the tram, we used to pay a halfpenny to Smiddles Lane rec.
How times have changed, and I'm not sure for the better.
