Yes , UCLA was the dry cleaners, they were in between the Magnet and Pavillion cinemas on the opposite side of the road.

 I also remember the clayton "Wars "  although it was mostly chucking stones at each other across clayton vale  ;)

We used to play snooker on Friday evenings at the little clubhouse at Tootal's factory on Ten Acres lane .

Hi Parky

Not sure about that, but I do seem to remember a tripe works in the vicinity ? and a little cobblers right on the hump of the hill going up church street from the Magnet, I used to get the cork studs in my football boots changed there  :)

I remember hanging out at the cleaners and asking American military men if they had any gum. Used to collect all the different US badges.
