Shanghai Flier - a Memory of Windhill.

Annie Dawsons - all the pillars were covered in mirroflex (tiny bits of mirror tile), Garners second-hand shop, next shop down? Mrs Garner lived in the house attached to the Travellers Rest, till she died (always had golden collies). Castle firelighters across the road by Windhill Liberal Club (still standing), and jam shop offices. Paddy's Park and Curries Chemist, the post office was at side of travellers then, and Willie Woods on the corner of Hall Lane and Carr Lane. Fishing nets for a tanner to go catch tiddlers on the dock in school hols!.. Shanghai Flyer? The 66a bus that did West royd, 66 used to come round the Carnegie, New Street? Linleys carpet shop? Bet you still know your co-op no. .....18310.
