I remember 'nesh' feeling the cold but there was a character who on a cold day would rub his hands together and say:- 'See Vulcan's only got one today'.

Took years for me to figure it out. Vulcan is the guy on toppot Tarnall I believe. Is he made of brass?

 

he might be copper, but the sentiment, I'm sure, remains the same...!

 

BTW, did you know we have another couple of statues of Vulcan dotted around the city centre... one (I believe)is on the dome of the Lyceum, the other is at the top of King Street, on what was Hornes building (Now Co-op extension) facing Primark (was C & A Modes). That one used to freak me out as a child.

Gemini,

Way back when, when we asked my mum, what was for tea, we were always told

" A run round't table, and a kick at't cellar doo'er!"
