Blimey! I just about remember that before the New Town came along.
For those of you trying to figure out where it is, the fire station is where the garage was and the two bungalows were pulled down in the early 60's. The houses in the background are still standing

It seems you all know about the Gaskell's Garage, can anybody tell me anything about their daughter Jean ? I have posted a pic of her & her husband, it must have been taken in the early 60's. Her married name was Pearce.
