Hi everyone. I was born in Crumpsall hospital 1949. Lived with my parents and older brother in Haliwell lane, Cheetham. My father belonged to Manchester. His family were Jewish. We left Manchester when I was three years old, due to family breakdown. I know so little about the area and wondered if anyone could paint a picture in words for me. Thankyou for reading this.

Hard working supportive communities. Back in the 40s,workers used the bus to get to work,kids walked to school.  Mostly Victorian property,women kept a clean step,even the pavement,looked after all kids no matter whose.
The only downside,dirty smokey air in winter.
Lowery paintings,have a good feel and are common of many areas.

Celeste sums up the thread perfectly, the comments already paint a good picture of the area as it was, all are affectionate and demonstrate what a nice place Cheetham Hill was.  :)

  Apologies Loz, I missed this post, if I was describing the area I'd say exactly the same things  O0
