Rag & Bone Man - a Memory of Frizington.

I lived in Coronation Street in the early 50's to the late 60's, when I joined the army. A great place to be in those days. I remember running out to the rag and bone man and handing over some old clothes and getting a gold fish for them and dad sending me out to get the horse droppings, and biddles when you could go to the pictures on a Saturday for 6d long walks with my dad all the way to ennerdale water stopping off in ennerdale bridge for ice-cream and a bottle of dandelion and burdock. The seasons were sunny in summer and you had snow in the winter sliding down the hills on a bit of wriggle tin, and hen beck were we used to swim in the summer great days and good freinds
