Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Collyhurst Road
We are born and bred collyhurst family. Lived at 6 Paget St and my Gran Mary Kelly at no 4 Paget St. My late father was Harry Kelly and my mam (still alive) is Elsie Kelly.
We all went to the Tin School on Collyhurst Road until the social engineering planners demolished the houses, communities and sense of belonging we all had and still do. I am 54 now my name is Ian and Collyhurst Past is my passion. Who can forget ? Does any body remember Flo Leaver the corner shop and Cook's the greengrocer. and the train crash on the viaduct over the Irk.
Ah what memories !!
