Re: Hyndburn Local History Society

I don't know where I got this info from, but in the 50s I read a book about him by Garry Hogg and seem to remember that Blackburn Rd was mentioned. I wondered as to how a blind chap could do what he did, and marvelling that he walked at t'-top of eawr street. I'll pay particular attention on Thursday.
