Early Memories Of Widnes - a Memory of Widnes.

I was born in Widnes in 1934 and lived on Lowerhouse Lane until I married in 1965.
Then went with my wife, Shelagh, to live on Elkan Road before moving to Lowton in 1967 and then to Sheffield in 1971.
Memories of Widnes include dancing at Everite, playing cricket for West Bank and Peter Spence. I visit Widnes fairly regularly.
