Recommended Posts

Hi stpetre

 

The shop next to the chip shop was indeed as you say a ladies hairdressers on Upwell Lane.

When ukdobby mentioned the shop opposite the Reform Chapel i was not sure if

he meant Upwell Lane or Upwell Street .

As you say the Wensley Street newsagents was diagonally across.

Maybe Dave ( ukdobby ) can confirm which side of the Reform Chapel it was .

There was another shop across on Upwell Street i will be mentioning later in

replying to a picture posted earlier by Peter.

 

Mick .

 

It was the car spares shop on Upwell st Mick.

Hi all, the chip shop opposite the Reform Chapel was on the corner of Upwell Lane & Upwell Hill it was owned by Mrs Smith 1940's/50's I can't remember the name of the people who took it over from them, it was after them that it changed to a Chinese chip shop, I think it was called (The San Pan).The hairdresser's was owned by a Mrs Rawlings who had a daughter called Elaine,( a number of years before that it was a plumbers shop owned by a Mr Lucas). The newsagents on the corner of Wensley st was owned by Mrs Robinson Graham Lee was her grandson. Jean J

Drove along Owler Lane the other day to find the public convenience opposite the bottom of Popple Street has eventually been demolished. A new building is on the site but not sure what it is.

Had many a tiddle in there on my way to and from school.

Hi all, I feel sure that the shop by the side of Bagley Dyke and what was Owlet Lane (opposite The Reform Chapel) was owned by a distant relative of mine a chap called Charlie( Wag) Smith he had it as a grocery shop, and then I believe it became Pearsons used car spares.

I am told that the old toilets is an extension to the garage to make it a bigger shop.

Hi again cat631.

 

Further to my post 1626, here, for convenience, ( excuse the pun), is your pic of the toilet block as I have a little story about it....

 

http://s38.photobucket.com/user/ruperthehun/media/fullsizeoutput_2459_zpsbtexv76t.jpeg.html

 

In 1964 I had my first car a 1958 Ford Popular 103e, here it is....

 

http://i1255.photobucket.com/albums/hh629/peterlaurence/IMG_0493_zpsdec95862.jpg

 

My point is that my old workmate at Firth Browns, who died 3 years ago, wanted a similar car and we spotted a 1952 Ford Anglia E494a for sale on the garage forecourt parked just to the left of the toilet block. I think the sign said £60. Anyway he bought it in 1964.

Many years later, in 2001, I bought a car of the same model for old times sake and kept it for six years. Here it is....

It's just a lovely memory for me :)
