Great photo Alan :-)
Notice the unlittered roads..it stands out like a sore thumb.
Oh dear, expect complaints again.
Surely this was on here a few weeks ago?It had lots of comments.
Indeed it was Alan, it had to be removed over claims of plagarism.
Been on a few weeks ago.
Forgive my ignorance. Where is this?
Last time it was on it got taken off the Album prematurely, as did another photograph of Newtown.
Giovannai, it's the saddle junction in Newtown looking up towards Warrington Road & Ormskirk Road.
Thanks Ian. I've got me bearings!!
Then you need to Grease them, Giovanni.lol
WD40 already applied Garry! LOL
The point duty policeman is not exactly rushed off his feet is he? I remember there still being a point duty policeman here at peak times into the late 50s. The first small roundabout was installed about 1960 approximately where the policeman is standing
Does anyone know When they demolished the Saddle pub?
No body had anything to throw away thats whay no litter
'Nobody had anything to throw away' Indeed...Lol. But what a bleak picture it is. An era well gone. Thank God.
I bet the Police today don't know how to do point duty ? We could do it in the Army in Northern Ireland in the 1970's and carrying an SLR rifle!
I lived at the saddle from birth - 1957 until 1975 and the policeman on duty at this spot used to cross us the road in the morning on our way to school, I can still hear my Mam "make sure yer cross wi' Bobby".
John I think The Saddle was demolished in the mid 6os.
Thanks A.W. I knew it had gone by the 70s when I used to drive past here, and the Queens had gone as well by then.
