It's hard to believe, now, how many shops and houses there were along Manchester Road.

There's even a petrol station on this photo. Just above the chaps hat on the right of the photo you can make out the "National" sign. Incers of a certain age like me will remember the lady that used to have the little shop and also served petrol from the corner..

Lynn Fulton is to the left of the man in the brown suit and Yvonne Thompson is just peeping out from behind the leader.
