  6. good thread I miss all the things that have already been mentioned,but most of all the community spirit of the old terrace houses where if your mum and dad worked the neighboughs looked after you in the hols,and you never locked the back door,cos we had nothing worth stealing!Can I ask Fridayboy if bowers butchers was owned by Deniss Bower as he was a good friend of ours in the 70s,and we have lost touch,it would be nice to hear if he is well.anyone know his whereabouts?He had a shop in bannercross I think!

  11. there was a drinks shop in heeley green,on gleadless road in the 50/60s.The last temperance bar open now is in rawtenstall lancashire and is still busy to this day.They had to stop selling sarsaparilla,as we know it,not long ago,they had to make up a new recipe,i cant remember why ,something to do with an ingredient used in the old recipe,not being allowed to be used.Anyway i believe it tastes the same!You can buy allsorts of remedies there,slippery elm!any one remember that for sickness,arrowroot to mention two!
