  1. I used to go to school (Ellesmere Rd ) with the daughter of the guy who owned the corner shop on Peter St her name was Faye Palfreman. She will be about 70 now.
  2. Yes that sounds about right. I worked for Walter from 1962 - 1969 at Queens Garage, when Westfield Motors went into liquidation He was a really nice guy and a good man to work for.
  3. unless I,m mistaken the Alex was owned by Walter Hattersley who also owned Westfield Motors on West St and Queens Garage on Queens Rd. I do stand to be corrected.
  4. Hi All I,m a late visitor to this topic but have read all the posts. A few of my memories to share, I left Ellesmere about 1958 ish but I do remember Mr Albaya very well as I used to play with his son who was in my class. A couple of names I recall. Faye Palfreman whose parents owned the shop on the corner opposite the school, and Gloria Grounsill (may have spelt her surname wrong). I still have a class photo which I will endeavour to find and post.
  5. I worked at TCH from 1969 in car repair. My very good friend was Paul Salkeld who worked in truck service but I have since lost contact does anybody know of his whereabouts, also what was the name of the guy who gave out the job cards

  13. It's due out this summer starring Lisa Stansfield and Ricky Tomlinson. Looking at the short trailer looks like a Northern Saturday Night Fever. I presume it will be a cinema release. I was a regular visitor to the twisted wheel in Manchester but never got to The Wigan Casino, Blackpool Mecca or the Torch in Stoke.
  14. How many Northern Soul lovers will be going to see this film due out this summer.
