Does anyone remember the Silhouette Club, later Highway 61? Corner of Broadfield Road

Hi sedith. I remember the Silhouette and Highway 61 above the shops on the corner

Later on , it’s where Delyse Humphries had her model agency.

Just wimbling through the various topics on this forum to alleviate COVID boredom.   I lived at 36 Glover Road from 62 to 66. Went to Lowfield school, well, it was at the bottom of the road. There was a corner shop halfway down at Gifford Road. Seem to recall it was run by Mrs Wareing.  Excellent chippy opposite the school.

Anyone remember the school dentist? Terrified me.

Went to Boys Brigade at Brunswick Trinity Methodist church. 
Seem to remember a very good bakery, opposite Fine Fare. Travelled for a day trip to Belle Vue from Heeley station.

Unfortunately the smoke and soot in the atmosphere didn’t agree with my lungs and suffered with respiratory trouble all the time we lived there. 

 

Happy days,

I worked at Charles Ross, Structural Engineers whose entrance was opposite Broadfield Road. We'd have to hold the traffic up when we had a delivery or collection and the wagons would have to enter Broadfield Road and then reverse into the entrance. I expect a lot of people just walked past without knowing what actually was behind the shops there, it was quite a large fabrication shop.
