Howards Chip Shop - a Memory of Widnes.

I was born in Elliott Street, moved to 10 South Street - my brother was born there in November 1943 - I was eight years old and an only child - I was so excited I ran around to Howards Chip Shop in the main street and got knocked down by a double decker bus - only grazed - that little brother is now 68 years old.
