Billy Fleetwood's grandad is on the extreme right
The Manly pub in the background and Lower Ince railway station to the left. I didn't know a bowling green existed in that area? Good photo Perkin.
The Manley and the "posh" houses down Ince Green Lane, just past the church bridge,in the background. Hope you can put the one of the walking day on too, Perkin.
posh houses in ince?
That is a very early photo, it was taken up and replaced at the Central wagon works site for a while, but in the late 70s was again taken up and replaced back at the Ince wagon works site, I was one of the men who helped to do it, it was there till we closed in 1983, then I dont know what happened to it , the land was sold for building purposes, and where the bowling green was is now the site of the Spindlewood estate, there are a few photos on of the area showing the site of the wagon works from junction terrace (old railway snaps)
??? no sign of the clinic building, anyone know when that was built
The 1954 map shows a Bowling Green and Tennis Courts in that area
Yes, hindleyman, and they're still there.
Hello, Perkin. You've made an incredible recovery since Tyburn, AND travelled through time! What was it like to be 'drawn'? Terriifying I would think...
What year approx would this be? Grandad worked there but not sure when..
I would have thought this would have been taken sometime in the 1930,s.
