Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
Frank was a nice guy; the type who would listen and not necessarily advise, but someone I could confide in. Personally (this is just my perspective) he appeared to have skills and intellect that he would shy away from and always take a a job with little demands. I think he worked at the Vinegar Factory at Goose Green for a while after he departed the shoe factory.
I've only known anyone so laid back and that was someone called Johnny whose last name I can't remember but he looked a little like Francis Rossi back then. He thought watching football on Tv was too energetic and favoured Bowls or cricket (though he said cricket could get a bit too manic at times). Johnny, despite his fascination with the rock/underground scene, got into Frank Sinatra and endeavoured to buy anything and everything Sinatra that was out there!
Oh, we could all write a book between us!!!
