One of the joys of going to Southport on the train was to have the windows fully open when passing here, then breathing in deeply through your nose - ahh lovely, ugh definitely not.
I remember it well, Cyril. Going to to Southport from Ince Station on a hot Summer's day. The carriage windows in the lovely old steam trains were held open with a big leather strap until we approached Appley Bridge when the sound of the windows being shut all along the train was like machine-gun fire!!
It was an awful smell wasn't it Irene, and worst of all if you happened to catch a whiff it stuck in your nose and seemed to linger for ages.
The smell of the blue factory was followed shortly afterwards by the sewage works at How Far Moss. Yet as you both say wonderful memories of the steam train on days trips to Southport.
Damned Predictive text ! Hoscar Moss of course is what I actually typed.
Yes,likewise as I typed Persil the other day which came up as Persia !
