Is that you, Aitch? You haven't put a name on. Do you remember there used to be a box-works down Patricroft Road in the 60s? Our Colin's wife worked there for a time. I can remember going to meet her at dinner time and calling at Annie Blinkhorn's chippy.
Hi Irene, I dont know why my name didnt show up, It was put on, I dont remember any box works but I certainly do with that yard, thats were I learned my burning skills and finished up on piecework burning engines up, and quaffing a few pints in St Bills club which you can see in the foreground, the small cabin on the left was where we left our burning gear and the brick building was the office where we clocked on
Reckon this photo was taken in 1965/66. You can see the builders cabin on the site of the Double Seven Youth Club that was eventually built opposite St Williams Club. I remember the site being cleared.
