Re: Does anyone remember in ossy

I've just asked picked my mum's brains, and it was Crawshaw's.

They had a daughter who was called Pat, a 'very bonny girl', who'd be around sixty five now.

Sorry I missed this.

Yes I'll ask her, though initially she only remembered the daughter, Pat.

Some time ago i asked the question WHAT HAS CHANGED IN OSSY
After reading various posts it really does seem that nothing has changed
to people living in Ossy.
For people living overseas even small changes are very noticeable
I did not know the CO OP has been moved down Union Road opposite to where the Tripe shop was
Even small changes can affect your memory of how things were

Personally I think it was a shame that they demolished the main Co-op, apparently we also had at least three more smaller Co-ops too.

It was a grand old buliding, and Ossy Co-op was at one time famous for paying the highest 'divvy' in the country.

Its was a bit lower down than that Bernie, the left hand corner of Collier Street, the fancy dress costume shop was Louy Parks Furnishing who moved there from what was the old CO-OP shop that was on the opposite side of the road just lower down than the clinic. there were loads of grocers shops in those days there was Duckworths where the launderette is just across from the Civic Theatre, then higher up (now Owen and Ewing's Insurance, and once the Steak Bar) was Jimmy Gorrels, and of course Rileys at the top end of Ossy, and a little one on the opposite side of the road next to the paper shop, the woman who had it was Madg Wilson, she was my mate Lefty's Aunt
