Widnes Road c.1960 - a Memory of Widnes.

This takes me back. I had a Friday night/Saturday job there when I was 14 in the Tesco store. Great fun, and all that money - £1 5s!! My dad was greengrocery buyer for Tesco in those days and we went all over the north to visit the different stores. I remember that our shopping trolley would be overflowing with items, and still come to under £5 for a familyof 5!! Used to love the hot buttered toast from the Rendezvous cafe next door to Tesco, really thick and dripping with proper butter. Mmmm!
