    Yes that's right Tex. I lived off Eccles New Rd until the late 70s and used to go regularly, especially in the school holidays. My final visit was the meaning of life in 1983. I 'd always wondered what studio 2 was like and finally got to see. I'm not far from you. Lived in Pendlebury for 16 years.

    West Ashton St was the one that ran across the top of Zion St and Zacariah St wasn't it?

    I must admit I don't remember the ABC in Eccles. I went to the Princes in Monton a couple of times but other than that it was the Carlton or the cinemas in the City centre at the time.

    Yeah, ofcourse the Princess was a good cinema, i think the ABC closed in the late 70s. West ashton st was off montford st and south ann st, opposite the old railway footbridge

    Oh yes, West Ashton St was the other end of Montford. The street i was thinking of was West Clowes. I lived off Montford myself, School St.

    Ha ha ha. What are the odds? Stowells 71-78 then Ordsall. I don't know Pete. Which corner shop are you talking about? There were 3. The butchers, Graham's and the chippy down at the other end. I know the Sloans. Used to knock about with David from time to time in my younger days. Bill is one of my Facebook friends.

    Small world indeed eh Branny?...Pete rushby lived at what used to be a greengrocers right at the bottom end but may have become something else later on. Bill is an old school pal of mine from Stowells, he later became a good friend to my brother Colin and i see him from time to time at family events...smashin bloke!
