love this! I remember when those flats were built.
I always preferred those red bricked flats they blend in well to those familiar terraced houses.
Can imagine the folks on the top floor not needing a stove top or microwave cooker the electromagnetic energy from all the radio waves up there could well fry the food for them.
Reminds me of the sixties when a workmate took me up a tower block and we looked down on the Coronation Street set.
It takes a huge stretch of the imagination to picture a group of lads standing around a Well at the top of Scholes waiting to draw the Family water ration for the day.
I agree, the red-brick flats look much better than the concrete-looking ones. Boys Well was an actual well,there were quite a few in that area,as Spring Street and Harrogate Street indicate.
