Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Collyhurst Road
I lived in Bronze St off Rochdale road, and went to St Pats 1956 -1962 I'm 57 now,iremember the snowball fights with Abbots St, and loggin for Bonfire Wood,anyone remember Wilcox's barrel works? We used to have battles with the kids who lived in the dwellings on collyhurst road.The Kytes and the Lyon's lived in our street does anyone remeber them?. I have happy memories of my collyhurst childhood some hard times as well,I live in New Moston now and usually when driving from town always go down Danzig St and up Dalton St takes me back.I've never tasted ice cream as good as Marco Rea's do you remember his horse drawn cart and him ringing the bell.
