  1. I rember him from school, although he was two years above me.
  2. Dolly died some years ago, she lived at the bottom of Springvale Road. Brian also died don't think he had been well for some time, he lived just up the hill from Dolly on Birkendale. Used to see Jimmy quite a lot up to last year, he used to in Tesco on Berkley Precinct, I sometimes had a coffee with him, although he is older than me I had known him and Brian since the sixties. Then I heard he had gone into a care home, the same one his wife Shirley was already in. Think it's called Prior Bank, it's on Cherry Tree Road at Nether Edge.
  3. Always went to Barney, Reid and Taylor cloth always kept it's shape, could never wear it out.
  4. Ralph used to get hustled playing snooker at the snooker hall at the top of Cambridge Street.
  5. When the weather turns really cold he will just have to make do with describing himself.
  6. Doe's that mean there will be a riot in Liverpool tonight?
  7. Thanks for the kind word about Earnest, he was my uncle and also my Godparent. He was a bit of a character, he used to take me everywhere when I was a kid.
  8. In the late sixties I knew a girl called Linda Harben, her parents had two dress shops on Middlewood Road. One was in the Hillsborough shopping center, the other was further along opposite the Park Cinema. I think she now lives in Florida.
  9. No, I know John Reaney. It was John Moyse who had SMC, he used to work at Brook Shaws.
  10. That's right, think his name was Cecil, he used to chain smoke Park Drive cigarettes. He used to light one up, put it down somewhere while he was doing something forget about it , then light another one up. They had a beer off on City Road when the shop was demolished.
  11. Used to know Stuart Ward whose parents had the beer off shop on the corner of Springvale Road.
  12. Drove past the bottom of the lane today, there is a sign that says Blind Bull opening in spring. Hope they make a success of it
  13. Surprised he's lasted this long given the life he's led. When he was in Cream with Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton they were the first so called Supergroup, and rightly so, watch the video live at the Albert Hall think it was 1968. Fantastic group to say there was only the three of them.
