ABC streets and Burton St school

Recommended Posts

...I remember a tripe shop on the main road that had a dog made out of Park Drive packets in the window. ...

 

I'm SO pleased someone remembers those Park Drive dogs! :thumbsup:

 

I'm not from the ABC streets myself, we lived at my Nan's off Dykes Hall Road when I was small, but my huge extended family – the Parkers – lived in those streets in the 1940s and 50s.

 

There was a house three or four doors down from my Nan's that had a Park Drive dog in the window. It was made from the packets with the light turquoise print, which I think were the tipped ones (my Mum smoked Parky rough, the untipped ones, and they were in a packet with red print).

 

This would be in the mid-1960s, and the dog was in that window for years – but my Mum, my Dad, my Nan and my sister all deny that it was there, and even that there was any such thing as a Park Drive dog. I've asked dozens of people about it in the years since, but they all look completely blank at the mention of Park Drive dogs – so much so that I've even wondered whether I'd imagined it.

 

Yay, I'm not going mad!! :banana:

If I've got the right streets my Grandmother Shepherd lived at 10 Cottam street up until the 1960's. I remember a tripe shop on the main road that had a dog made out of Park Drive packets in the window. Also the local barber where us youngsters stood on a box and he walked around you to cut your hair!

 

I remember mrs shepherd, she lived next door to my nan at number 12, I also remember the park drive dog and the tripe shop :)

A friend of mine had a relative who owned a shop at the and of the ABC Streets in the late 60's --Les Blackwell -- was the sons name if I remember right.

 

I remember Leslie Blackwell, my mum worked at Blackwells shop in the mid to late 70s, mrs Blackwell is still alive and well and in her 90s I think. My mum remembers Mr Blackwell as a nice man who taught her to drive.

Hiya Jackmarr,

I also lived in Fawley Road, born there in 1944, and married and lived in the same house, we were amongst the last to move out in 1969/70 I think? Lived on the right hand side about halfway up. went to burton st school from 1949 till 1959. On the right hand side, the post office was on the corner, some of the names I remember are the Piercy's, Mrs Gleedhill, Fox's, Dennit's, Elwood's, Mason's, Needham's. Some I can still picture but names have gone...............old age........ memory goes :))

Regards

John

I remember John Butler who lived up cottam street. I think he lived with his grandmother and went to live down south somewhere. I've got an old photo with John and myself on a school trip in Derbyshire.Remember the Blackwells too.Went fishing with Les and his dad to Hubberts Bridge once. I think Mrs. Blackwell came from Germany originally.
