A nice old picture which brings back memories.
The building left of the school was Ste Whitfield's paper shop.
I knew him well when I was a lad
Great to see this old picture up here. I am Ste Whitfield's son Jimmy and have happy memories of living in the paper shop mentioned by Cyril above.
Good shot of the school, I used to be in the scouts and we had meetings in there.
I was brought up in what became Whitfieds' paper shop - St and Maggie bought it from my parents in 1955. The photo dates from 1958/59 as the street lamps attached to the telegraph pole were smaller before that date.
i remember your mum delivering papers to our house on Crawford Ave i was only a young girl then how time flies
I used to live at 600 Bolton Road - now flattened- this was on my way to Scholl at St Lizzies
Great Picture grew up in that area, new Jimmy and Gary very well hope you are both fine
This photo was taken from our front garden at 500 Bolton Road.
We lived next door to Miss Esther Higham who was a teacher at St. Elizabeth's School.Mr. John Hesketh was the Headmaster. I remember Steve and Maggie Whitfield at the paper shop.
I seem to remember the paper shop (no longer there)being across Bolton Road near to Higham's shop. It then moved next to the school in the 1950's
Lived at 489 before moving to 491 on grandfathers demise and so Whitfields took over later and turned it into a shop
I remember Joan and younger brother at 500
I. can remember Maggie and Ste delivering papers to my grandads on st marys road and every sunday evening he had a white mini which he used to have toffee in the back and we used to wait for him to come round.
