Recommended Posts

Hi Cleegirl

 

The fellow who gave the skates out was called Roy Darwin he had a sister called June and they both used to dance on skates and were very good. I used to go caroling on Xmas Eve until I had enough money to go to the skates, great memories. I was born on Melville Road off Broughton Lane in 1944.

Hi played down Bright Street often. Went to Carbrook County infants and junior school opposite Janson Street was in the same class as Michael Graville he lived on Bright Street. Used to go to the Stores on the corner of Bright Street/Carbrook Street I can still remember my mum's stores number. Can't help but feel we may have known one another. Used to know lots of kids who went to Carbrook C of E school all around our age.

Did any of you see Roy 'skate' down all those steps? I used to go with some guys off the manor around '62. Also remember Harry Rhodes went on a few trips in his Austin Westminster farina.

There were quite a few guys there wearing studded belts too, you could get an offer of a 'feight' too easily:hihi:!

Does anyone know what happened to Pauline Travis, I was very taken with a blond haired fella called Terry (can't remember his surname)

Hi, dont know what happened to her, but she was in my class at Owler Lane Intermediate school.

I also used the skating rink a few times, but lived on The Circle on the Manor, One day we went on the bus to Staniforth Road bottom, then put on our skates and skated down to the rink, where we were told off for wearing them on the street. They did let us in though.
