Re: The Deck

Saw Jeffrey on Friday, was the first time I have spotted in town for ages. He was sitting on the side steps of the Town Hall, a place I have never seen him before! He did NOT look wonderful by any means and does not have his lovely dog anymore.

Do you know much about Oliver Rowley or inparticular Angela? I am a long lost relative of Angela and would quite like to get back in touch. I she still living in Ostletwissel?
An Oliver Rowley worked in the warehouse at WF Chambers cotton mill on Victoria Street the factory bottom) in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Chambers closed this mill in the early 60s and I lost touch with Ollie as we all had to find jobs elsewhere.

That wouldn't be on the Deck, looks more like Bridge's corner of Church Street looking up Peel Street along the side of the Market Hall.

What date? and which one's your dad?

Re: The Deck

I knew it wasn't on the "deck" but thought I'd post it up as its across the road, its pretty obvious where it is the Market Hall and Bus Station are directly behind

My Father is in the middle, 60s in probably right Cashman.
