Crumpsall

Has it lost it's heart?



Perhaps not. I spent many happy times there at my aunts and uncles in the 1950s. They lived near Crumpsall Park.

Well there certainly have been a few changes since my childhood here.  There used to be a Nat West Bank on the right of the photograph - on the corner of Delaunays Road / Crumpsall Lane.  I lived in Moss Bank until we moved away when I was about 7 years old and still remember some of the old shops on Lansdowne Road (although not all by name).  I used to attend the old Cravenwood Road junior school but this has long gone, however I think a new one was built on the same site.

Looking for fresh places to shop I used to go on the tram to Crumpsall, bit of a walk to the mall there but found some nice shops - I used to go to Prestwich as well and take a taxi to the De Vere hotel for lunch often sitting outside and watching the golfers - there was a TV indoors too
 
Then there was the San Rocco restaurant on the main road, I think there was another in Manchester city centre

My godparents used to live on Crumpsall Lane until around the mid-1970's, and as a young kid, it always appeared to be a very elegant road at the time.  There used to be some lovely shops on the junction with Lansdowne Road, and also on Lansdowne Road itself.  I still have memories of popping into the newsagents/sweet shop and buying small bars of chocolate for 2p. 


Crikey, I'm showing my age now.   ;D
