the guy who stopped the buses was "Joseph" a polish guy who lived down clayton, a few stories relate to his manner,was something during the war i believe, the guy with the pens etc, i remember - but forget his name.

Re: The Deck

Polish Joseph seemed to have a death wish; he would suddenly jump into the road in front of cars and buses, then jump back onto the pavement, giving a little bow of thanks as he did. I'm sure the bandoliero wearer called himself Captain something-or-other. Can't remember what, though.

Re: The Deck

a thing i remember about "Polish Joseph" he always carried a brown leather shopping bag, n after he had stopped a bus in the middle of blackburn rd,he would return to the pavement, wave n smile at the driver,then walk a few paces and pull a wine bottle out of his bag n have a kinda celebratory slug, no idea if it was wine? often wondered. never ever saw the guy in a pub though,wonder did anyone?

Re: The Deck

The guy with the coloured pens died several years ago, I believe he choked on his vomit, don't know his name or anything, just know this because he used to live across from a mate of mine.(That's if it was the person you are on about)

Re: The Deck

is there anyone remembers a guy named duffy who used to hang out in the blue dahlia maybe in the late sixties. In the same crowd there was a guy called Steve. Used to meet in the Dahlia every weekday untill Chris banned them for sitting too long over a couple of drinks?

I'm thinking Alan Duffy would be about 61 or 62 now, a couple of years older than me , seem to remember he spent more time in the Derby than the Blue Dahlia
