There was a chippy at the end of George road, used to be run by an Arab family.Wonderful Eric. Good to hear that you're painting again. I remember walking down that narrow footpath in the 1950's, with Dad, on our way for fourpenn'orth from the chip shop. It was very dangerous especially if a bus came down the road as we were walking there. Nan lived at Bridge Road and I think the chip shop was at the end of George Road but for some reason I can't remember the shop itself. Was it still there when you were there
A mere child, the great thing about the tram was that no one complained about the distance between the platform and the the road, or that you got on and off in the middle of the road, or the rocking of the tram at speed especially on the reserved tracks. Great fun you missed a treat. The trams were loved by young and old.dont think i ever went on a tram...i was born in 1953 by which time i think they had ceased running...
