Eh Arthur Mortimer what a character he was when we moved from Midland St in the 1950s he helped us by loading his cart with beds and all sorts.Him and his dad lived in Cedar Street bottom end corner of Cedar St and Percy St I seem to remember his dad was a bit of a tartar.He loved my grandma Mary to bits he would call in to see if he had won on the horses.Me and my younger sister used to say he reminded us of long John Silver ( without the peg leg of course ) then there was gill of mild Nellie Ada Tootle and Cissy bloomer they were all friends of our grandma Mary and loved nothin better than have a good natter and put the world to rights....God bless em all.

I cannot believe that Cashy, who lived in Dowry St, doesn't know that the street he describes is Bradshaw St.

Re: Yards in Accrington.

I saw the building is still there on my first visit back home in over 30 years. It belonged to my grandfather, he lived on Westwood street. Does anyone know any more about them or him, I don't know much about him.��
