Return to Topic. (well at least a bit)
Salford. My wife always tells everyone the right answer, cos that's where she is from. The Essential MacColl Song Book, quoted a couple of times earlier in the thread does not say that though. Don't have it myself so I can't actually confirm what it says. It was written posthumously though. Again from memory.
My wife used to take me shopping at the OLD Salford Market, before they knocked it all down, along with a hell of a lot more around that area. I guess I will get to see what it now looks like, as we will be over in April/May.
