Re: Knight's Tripe Shop, Clayton?

I never know where to put these things, there are so many categories, but I have mentioned my great grandma's tripe shop in Clayton several times. It was located at 158 Whalley Road, and the Star Cinema was directly across the road according to my sister. Found this on Facebook, but we are wondering if we can find a photo of the tripe shop. Any ideas? I visited the area in 1978 before the motorway was constructed, and I manged to get a brick from it that I presented to my mother. When she was moved to a nursing home and her house sold, it was carelessly thrown away. https://ibb.co/wBKVGL8

Steerforth, this is best placed as question on the general forum.
I have lived in Clayton for fifty three years and do not remember a tripe shop opposite the Star cinema.
There was a corner shop at the bottom of Henry St(George Hoyle) thornbers chemist was on the opposite corner(broadleys side).
Next door to George Hoyle was the chip shop(Chans).....and on the other side of Chans was a haberdashery(run by John Oldham wife....but I can't bring her name to mind right now).
Maybe the tripe shop was one of the two other than Hoyles....he had been there(I am told) since God was in short trousers.

Now I am sorry that none of this answers your question....I will ask some folk who are older than me and know more about Clayton.

Thanks for your reply, Margaret. We talked in here about the location of the tripe shop years ago. I went by the nick of "Mack" then, and the thread is in "Lost Friends and Family" - "Information about Clayton". You participated in the thread. I think the shop may have been on the corner of Henry Street (Long Row) and Whalley Road. It was torn down to make way for the motorway. Grandma retired in 1949 and closed the shop; she had it for 49 years. She lived with us on Moss Hall Road for a few years before she died in 1952.

I posted this, but it is not available any longer. My mother found the charcoal drawing when she visited the area in the 1970s. Grandma's shop is to the left, and this is where I got the brick from. My cousin from Clitheroe was with me when I got the brick in 1978, and she knew the shop and its location very well.
