  3. Eyup, Downsunder, long time no speak, nice to see you are enjoying QLD, and still living in TAS. it's 12yrs now since we left TAS (Richmond) after our 3 yr sea change and the business we had in Salamanca Markets. still miss Tassie though, but kids and grandkids here in Perth. we are still in Mandurah (Madora Bay) and I have about 18months before I retire...or sooner! so looking forward to all that, thanks Hillsboro for the motivation :-) I have to find a hobby or summat! mind you paddleboarding and Kayaking is lovely to do. Are you still in Penguin, Downsunder?
  4. Yes I remember the cowboy....but not in Blackpool, in Bridlington at one of the amusement arcades. You had to stand about 15 foot away in front of him, and when his recorded voice said "draw" you fired your gun....if you "hit" him, he said.....uuurrgghh! You got me! " I must a had a bit o' dirt in my eye!.... Great memories,I was about 9 or 10 and about 1964.
  5. perhaps a liitle late with this post,looking at the replies so far, I used to go to what we knew as just "Broadway" in 1969-70.... it was in the corner, below a shoe shop, about 4-5 shops down from the Old Blue Bell. A great place to go, Motown stuff etc. great for dancing...., great memories....apart from some idiot trying to sell pills in the gents toilets!
  6. There was a Siddall family lived near us on Crookes, opposit the Kandy Kabin, in the late 50's early 60's, probably 4-5 kids, and I think I remember they emigrated to Canada? they lived next door to the Fiddler family on Crookes.

  9. Hi Amanda, i remember the delicatessen, I used to go to Crookes Endowed school, where I think your sister and brother also went, if my mind is correct? David Hopkinson unfortunately no longer with us from a young age, and your sister Maxine?
