The male cleaner of the old horrible toilets down Wallgate had a visitor who was a new supervisor,he asked the cleaner to sign his name on a form,just to confirm he was the cleaner,the poor chap told him he was illiterate so therefore couldn't sign.The supervisor told him that wasn't acceptable,and was fired,the poor chap had worked there for years.To cut a long story short he gathered what money he had saved and took himself off to America.
He discovered through friends that he had a business brain and soon became a millionaire.At a dinner party one night one of his friends said "Just imagine all this wealth and you still can't read nor write where would you have been if you could" to which he said "I'd be down Wallgate cleaning toilets"..My Grandma told me this,she lived in Wallgate at the time this happened.
