My Memories Of The Red Lion Area

Roger... After reading your recollections of the Woodsend Road I hope you don't mind me adding to your list of memories.

The Red Lion

I lived about 150m from here from 1953 till 1968. This is 'The Red Lion' (the Red Lion pub is just out of shot at the left).

The terminus for the No. 23 bus route to Manchester Picadilly.

Saturday Matinee

I always attended the 'Saturday matinees' during the late 50's at the Curzon cinema. Happy childhood days!

Barrets Butchers

I used to work at Barrets butchers in about 1982 with my mate Pete Bennett (r.i.p.). A blonde girl called Sharon used to come past everyday on her rollerblades - fond memories.
