not sure where linney street was,whats name of street woman is walking
Hi Billy.Linney St was the first on the right from Platt Lane.
But the St with the lady walking has me beat. Neville St ran off Linney St going towards St Catherines Church. Then came Isabella St, then the one which eludes me. Linney St also ran parallel to Scholfield Lane. Can anyone else help with this query as the old grey cells are not working.
Hi' Dot The Street Is Florrie Street I Used To Live Opposite Where You Both Are Stood I Used To Mate With Glenys's Brother Alan The Coal Merchant Was Mr. Blackburn
Hi Joe. Lovely to get some answers to my query. Florrie St of course. Did you ever go to the Deromas ice cream for a treat?
Used to sometimes follow the coal men and pick up what they dropped. Mum wasnt too pleased as I was covered in the dust. She didnt like it either is I played with the tar on the roads when it got hot. Do you also remember PC49 who lived in Isabella St?
Hi Joe. Just remembered that I have put on Linney St party. This is on the Street scenes, under linney st. Mr Lowton is on who lived on the same block as Glenys. What happened ro Glenys do you know. Blackburn is the name I should have remebered, very appropriate name black for a coal merchants.
Your Welcome Dot These Photo's Really Bring Memories Flooding Back Where Was Deroma's Can't Think Whereabout's It Was But Must Have Had Icecream From There Can You Remember A Horse Drawn Flat Waggon With A Kiddies Roundabout On The Back Of It In The 1950's Very True That
Don't Know Dot Since Moving From Linney Street Lost Touch With Lots Of Those People I Know Alan Used To Live In Golborne In The 1990's
Deromas was in Florrie St but at the Scolfield lane end. Opposite side to the coal merchants. I used to run up the backs behind Glenys house. Some missing ice cream before I got home.
tThis is 33 Linney St.My grandmas Nancy Berry,the Cherry's lived next door,my family the Lowtons lived at 43 Linney St.I recognize Dorothy Ince and Glenys Cherry.As a girl Glenys had rheumatic fever and was very poorly . Ann Lowton as was .
Hi again Ann, yes i knew of Glenis having ill health as a youngster. Did you marry Mr Roberts locally? I married at St Catherines, then my youngest married there as well. Met up with Eileen Martin also of Linney St. We met in Perth Hospital in Australia, thet would have been around 1977 ish. She was married and I went to her home and met her Mum who had emigrated out there. Lovely to see her after so many years. Her photo is on the school photos when she went to the High School. Nice coincidence.
I lived at 63 Linney Street, Remember Dot well after seeing her in Perth, Remember Glenis Cherry and Ann Lowton well.Have kept in touch with Ann Stringman Brenda Ashurst Sheila Summers all Linney Streeters.
Hi Eileen, if you go to http://www.wiganworld.co.uk/album/photo.php?opt=2&id=344&gallery=St+Catharine%27s%2C+Wigan&offset=0 you should find a few of your Linney street friends.
The ice cream makers in florrie St were worthingtons who had a shop at.
The bottom of scholefield lane
I am interested that this is 33 Linney Street. Nancy Berry, married to Joseph, was my mother-in-law's grandmother too, and we have a photo of the family outside no. 33 in the early 1930s,
