Hinde House Lane becomes Windmill Lane at the junction with Firth Park Avenue.

That car spares shop used to be a little bakery when I was a kid and sold perfect miniature Hovis loaves for about 3 farthings.

By the 1950s bus conductors were refusing to accept farthing coins and their value was so small that their usefulness was felt to be over. None were minted after 1956 and they were not legal tender after 1960. The new penny introduced in 1971 is about the same size as a farthing (20 millimetres in diameter), but such has been the fall in the value of money that its purchasing power is less than 50 per cent of what the farthing’s was on its final day.

Interesting but a million miles away from page hall it breaks my heart to see a once clean and proud neighbour hood brought to its knees so neglected and torn apart by the powers that run this country !

It was definitley Brian Somebody. He used to open at 5:00 am to catch the morning shift-workers on their way to work.

 

One shop not mentioned was the beer-off on the corner of Barretta street. Kept by an ex RAF officer, whose name I can't recall, and sold draught ale from a hand pump.

 

And yes the pork butcher's shop was Kramers, perhaps Friedrich's shop was the one at the bottom of Bellhouse. I believe the other butcher's shop at PH was Ashton's which later became Siddall's green-grocers ?

 

It was Brian Barstow a big headed <removed> if my memories serve me well :hihi. Hows dogsneck these days ???
