Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Collyhurst Road
It's the first time I've seen this 'site' and memories just keep flooding back.I am 67 years of age and I went to Abbot Street School and remember well the snowball fights with St. Pats. Can't imagine schools allowing that to happen these days! I lived just behind the Balmoral Pub and went to the local clubs such as Lee Road Club and the Palladium Club. Spent many happy times in the little Queen's with my family. Moved to Kennet House Flats when my mum died and made loads of new friends there, but kept in touch with my very best mate who lived on Collyhurst Road. People always say "You could leave your door open those days", yes you could, but only because nobody had anything worth stealing! If anyone broke into our house they would probably have left us something!!!!!
