Well Mick, you certainly have an eye for the unusual, I like it !!. I presume the dry dock is close by the pier is it ?.
Walt didn't you used to work in the coop shop on Bolton road in the 60s.
Hi-ho Silver.....Awaaaaayyy! xx
Walt its next to the Trencherfield mill, its still used by canal boaters to get there bottoms blackened
Yes Mick, no doubt Malabar would have cleared the capstan, it's just that I'm frightened by the thought of him having been set before The Canal Turn, but then, and if my eyes don't deceive me, he might already have taken the easier option without travelling too-far.
I like that a lot. I also spotted the naked cyclist in the background!
Looks like it's been dumped, at least it's not been thrown in the canal. It's probably been taken by now.
Hi julie, answer to your question is yes 1962 - 1963, Mick, you have an unusual term of phrase as well, goodness knows what they do with the tar brush, I shudder to think !!!
Mick, I meant turn of phrase, I think , no doubt someone will put me right
walt do you remember polly and fred weaver who used to have the post office on Bolton road and also do you remember Austin the postman, as I used to live on Bolton road in the 60s and 70s.
Oi .....Mate , Where you going ? I said Glorious Goodwood!
Julie, I'm sorry I don't remember those folks, I worked at quite a few shops around Wigan area and left late 63 early 64 to pursue a life in road transport were I remained for 49 years. I left Aspull almost 40 years ago. Stay safe Julie !.
