Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

An interesting quote from the Wizard of Ossy in the Observer. However, I do wonder if the local rag may have made another error in it's typography. Surely the third from last word in Britcliffe's statement should begin with a 'S', not a 'H'?

Now that's achieved, shall we start another Facebook Campaign?

Heated seats?

Piped music?

Potpourri?

Free refreshments available in there, courtesy of Coffee Beanz?

Why's that, John? Didn't you find it as comfortable as schoolchildren have over the past 100 years?

Just been sent this photo by a mate, will put it to the council as an idea:

I was actually referring to Izal toilet paper which was greasy and abrasive and possibly the least suitable material for cleaning body parts that it is possible to come up with.

That is one part of my childhood that I do not look back on fondly.

Funny you should mention Izal Ken. Izal was once produced in Ossy, by a firm called Hygiene Supplies, the Firm was owned by a chap called Herbert Walsh and the factory was on Stonebridge Lane, my mother worked their until the place shut in I would think the mid sixties when the soft toilet paper was beginning to take off and with this guy being in his 70s he decided to close down as he could afford the new machinery that was needed to compete in the new market although Izal was still being used in Hospitals until I would think the 90s, Mind you Izal wasn't the only toilet tissue made by that firm I think the must have made around 70 different rolls of Toilet paper, well the same paper with different labels, at one time they employed about 25 women and 2 men

Soft loo roll only took off round here when you didn't have to run down the backyard to the long-drop, or the tippler.

Our damp weather conditions may have been good for working cotton, but was no good for tissue kept in an outside privy.

Unlike the impervious Izal, which remained hard and scratchy whatever the weather.

Unless the two were testers. Employed because they needed their arses wiping.

Right sisters?
