PS. Just had to mention , as others have elsewhere on here, that I also remember Dr Lipworth. I'll have been very young when I was taken there. As a small kid, I still remember the echoing sound running through a "modern" pale brick-walled  walkway somewhere on the way in to the surgery.

Hello Denise
I think your
thread is wonderful.Nostalgia has its agonies though
But I love reading about the close and rich community you had.By the
the way my childhood was in Wythenshaw

As I read the thread it reminds me of A TASTE of Honey

Wonderful film-gritty and poetic.Shelagh  was a magician

I wondered if you felt the same way.I used to visit relat
ives in Bolton
and I always wondered what happened to Jo or Rita

Salford is a bleak slagheap now but it was a warm and vibrant
place as was Wythenshawe in the 60s

Best wishes
