Hi Jimmy, i'm suprised there was'nt a comment on my nobbly knee's, leatherette jacket ,and balaclava.all trendy in them days.i remember rolling a snowball to make the head.i used to live to the right of the photo at 15 Kingsdown road.Cromptons shop can be seen to the right.Me and Phil were friends from year dot,i can remember us both taking the tyre's off our dinky cars, and posting them through the letter box of 15 kingsdown road,what a stupid thing to do cos we never got them back.A few other names of friends which might be remembered are-Arthur Crompton, Tony Allen,David Bishop,Alan Bellingham,Tom and Fred Ratcliffe,Olwyn Pearson,Marjorie Baxendale,Alan Ashurst,John Lenaine,Harrold Sumner,Geof Banks,Graham Wade,Terrence Connelly,Margaret Wright,Allan Bridge,Adrian Bates,Barry McNamarra,Arnold Crompton,Alice Sumner .Eric Grimshaw, Adrian Pennington,Margaret Lowe,Eric Peet,Michael Keeling,Phil will probably remember a few more who we played with as kids .
