Burnley Road

Hi, it WAS known as The Peel Arms, but now we know it as THE BROADWAY

Here's a view looking down the stretch near where Cashman must have lived

Re: Burnley Road

I remember that shop being Dent's.

Amazing how the Peel's Arms doesn't seem to look anything like the Broadway in that first photo and the road seems narrower too. Must be because it's an old black and white pic.

Was your old house demolished when they created Eastgate?

Re: Burnley Road

Yes, I know they chopped the end off the terraces, just wondering if that included your old house.

Re: Burnley Road

When did the Peel's Arms pub become the Broadway ? I guessed at c1937, when Broadway was opened, but it is still the Peel's Arms, 20 Whalley Rd, in my 1939 Barrett's directory. Anybody got a 1942 one or later ? No good me asking the library

If thatís the newsagents at the bottom of Burnley Road, on the corner of Moore St (I think), on left-hand side going up, I also earned my first pocket money (too young for beer) delivering papers.
I recall my round was up Water St, and environs, and the bag was rammed to bursting every day. The bags were slightly waxed and you had to put the strap over youíre head, then pull the full bag towards you, off the shop counter. The first time, not knowing how heavy it was, the bag nearly decapitated me as it hit the shop floor!
I think Iíd be a couple of inches taller now if I hadnít had that job.

Re: Burnley Road

I've forgotten the name of the people who were in the newsagent's before Billsboroughs. I have two vivid memories of that shop - Buying the first edition of The Eagle comic and going into the shop one teatime with my dad who had just got paid at Whittakers foundry. He had received some back-pay and showed me a white fiver.

I am still pursuing when the Peel's Arms became the Broadway
