Does anyone know the whereabouts of a girl ( woman ) called Bernadine Thompson ( maiden name ) she used to live in Lathbury Rd, Harpurhey, the last time I saw her was in 1965 just before I joined the army, first girl I ever kissed !! :smitten:

Hi Briggsy,

I used to know of Eddie Mannion but he was older than me, shame about his accident. I also worked at Rileys from 1962 to 1964 I then moved to Tootals off the Oldham Rd, I lived on Lathbury Rd till 1965 then I joined the Army, good days.
                     
All the best from Thorney

Hi, being new to this site myself I was wondering if anybody knows of any books on the history of Harpurhey from 1946 to 1960.
I recently bought 2 books by Joe Kay called Harpurhey Lad and am interested in more history on Harpurhey particularly round Rochdale Road, Conron Street and Moston Lane.
Thank you,
Geoff

Hi past and present Harpurheyn's.


I lived in Watt St near Alfred St between 1962 and 1970 before they pulled down the old Terrace houses and was forced to move to Damhead Estate in Blackley.


I remember Cathcarts store on the end of our road. If anyone has any photo's or even a Map of the area I would dearly love to see it again. Memories are fading fast.


I live in Northern Ireland now after serving 29 years in the Military and haven't been back to my old stopping ground since around 1978. I would love to be able to show my Children where I used to live.


If anyone can help please do. It would mean a lot to me.


Thank you. O0

I joined the 67th Harpurhey Methodist scout troop in 1966 as assistant scout leader the group scout leader was Derick Ray. I became scout leader (Kim) and we had a thriving troop winning lots of scouting competitions as well as having a great football team, some of the scouts that spring to mind are Alan & Norman Ostel, David Hume, John Ashley, John & David Kulasik, GED Shorrocks, Ian Crompton. It would be good to hear from anyone in the troop during the sixties. I also courted and met my wife Susan Tracey at the 67th she was a cub leader and lived in Hatfield Street.
