To set the record straight about Tommy:
He had a slipper stall on Hekmodwhick market. Poverty Knock as no connection with Lancashire what so ever.
I first meet him in 1965 in Dewsbury folk club (Station Hotel).
He had a yukalaly (spelling) that he made out of his old wardrobe door. It had the Key hole in the back. Honest
He used to say "I've now'bet two pennies lad", so what was so poor man to do.
You could buy his song sheet from him at Shilling. Sadly mine have well gone.
He had one about Ben Law. I think it was called the "Monugo Man"
As a totally different subject. Dewsbury was the first place that they put letters inside a stick of rock. So there Blackpool!!!
