Does anyone remember or went to Newton Heath Tech on Hague Street just off Oldham Road, sadly demolished years ago I believe. A number of us went there from longsight and it was a good school.

I think it was Crossley Premier they made engines and I think Locomotives. I worked in shipping industry years ago at Manchester Liners and we moved their cargo to Canada.

Does anyone remember Jane Mullen? She was a neighbour of mine on North Road Longsight, she went there probably between 1974 and 1978?

I am looking for people who lived in or around Mawson Street opposite Ardwick Green Park. I lived there for a few years until the house was demolished in 1962.

A man wrestled a woman in her 70s to the ground attempting to steal three gold bangles, he was foiled by a taxi driver, the thief escaped on a bicycle.

What sort of person targets an elderly female or male for that matter  >:(
The fuzz have arrested a 46 year old male on suspicion of attempted robbery in connection with the offence, and released him 'under investigation'

Radiogak - I think I may have had a flashback. I think I do remember the train set in Wiles' window. It was near the corner of the window on the entrance of Lewis' Arcade on the Piccadilly side (Moseley Street).

I thought this thread had dried up a long time ago, but Hey Ho! I am sorry you missed all the wonder and imagination that toy shop encouraged at that time, for those who could afford the toys and those who couldn't. It was a fantastic journey just walking around the place.
