  1. Hi Gary, Don't know what happened to Bill Needham, he used to look after my MK 2 Cortina Lotus way back in 1968. I believe houses have been built where Coldwell was ?????.
  2. Hi Pops, they could be marker pegs to identify the route where the oxygen pipeline was installed from BOC to the steelworks at Stocksbridge.
  3. cat631 you speak with forked tongue, on Friday night you said you did not understand modern technology. After your last post I have to bow to your greater knowledge of this contraption in front of me, I had a headache Saturday morning your fault. Great post well done.
  4. My lasting memories of the City Hall are of two work mates, Bob Miles and Roy Furniss, both of them died of cancer after we rewired the asbestos riddled building not that many years ago. Of course the samples sent off for analysis came back negative so it was allegedly safe to work, funnythatwhen the latest revamp was done nobody was aloud to enter the areas we had worked in until all this alleged safe material was removed. Signs stating asbestos do not enter were placed on all entrances to the effected areas, and this material was removed by specialists. This material was around tha ducting supplying so called fresh air to the Oval Hall and all other areas, and could have been since the original constuction.

  8. Hi all, The father of a lad I grew up with put his Bedford Shootingbrake on display in the Wicker Showrooms each year. It was a wooden bodied vehicle having 11/12 seats and believed to be a unique vehicle being the only one ever made. Wondered if anyone else can remember this I think this was in the 1950's.

  16. Mrs JDS, as I don't trust you to save me a drippin sarnie we have delayed our trip up to Scotland for a week or two, so I will be in the Legiron tonite so don't eat them all.
  17. Hi all, I remember the fishing trains with fond memories, being a young lad of about 10-12years of age and sitting with all the Misters. Catching the first bus into town along with many more into the Wicker, and running up the stairs to the Victoria Station, and having to sit in the guards van on your basket all the way to Bardney because the coaches were all full. I was taken there by a couple of Grimesthorpe men, Joe Boot and Sam Wilkes along with another young lad whos name escapes me right now, everyone looked happy, no money but happy.
  18. Mrs JDS after pass on the drippin now, off up to Scotland on the Thursday before for a bit of Haggis

  20. Mrs JDS, I thought you was keeping that a secret between ourselves and the rest of Morrisons.
  21. Ah, you are still only a young buck Bruno, and with all your musical knowledge you would leave these nappy wearers behind.
  22. Hi Cat and all, somewhere hidden in our house photographs do exist of my good self wearing a TUTU, WIG, Black Tights and carrying a Fairy Wand. In my defence I have to say it was a new years eve fancy dress party, I did have many comments in the pubs in Chapeltown, the main one as I recall was Where Do You Keep Your Wallet, to which I replied have a feel first before you look. I'll leave that to your own imaginations, if found I will bring them to the next reunion, Val Barrett eat your heart out.
