Memories of Sale
Way home from Picadilly
More of my golden memories from 1958/1959. Going dancing at the Locarno Ballroom with all the great music from that time ( Buddy Holly, Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Cliff Richard and all the other greats and watching my girlfriend Joan win a Jive/Routine contest dancing to Buddy Holly's " Rave On", and going to the pictures at the Odeon. Precious Days, Precious Times.
My father was a Dental Surgeon with his practice at 2A Ashton Lane on the first floor over the William and Glyns Bank on the corner of Washway Road and Ashton Lane. This is directly opposite the Bulls Head Inn. My father worked from 1938 until 1972 when he retired.
I used to work in the TSB down School Road in 1965/1966. I walked up from Glebelands Road swinging my wicker basket. Sometimes I got a lift off the milkman, it took me longer but he was very nice. I spent my time watching them build Boots and the new precinct.
