Potted Early Years In Sale
A Memory of Sale.
My father was on his way home after his shift at metrovicks in Trafford park when saw the fire in the town hall. He stood on the bridge over the canal and watched it burn until the clock tower collapsed. I was born in sale cottage hospital in December 1948 and lived in an end terrace 2 up 2 down stone floored cottage up an alley just off hope rd on the left just past a row shops. These have long since disappeared. We moved to a brand new council house in Exmouth Rd Ashton on Mersey and I went to Firs Rd primary and then Sale grammar for boys on Moss Lane. Mr Norris was the head followed by Mr CWS Bacon you can probably guess that was a source of great amusement. I went to the Locarno in the early 60's where Freddie and the dreamers, hermans hermits and many others were on every Thursday. Happy days. Who remembers the Wimpy between the Locarno and Odeon?
