Re: POLITICS CORNER

China, have you met the bloke to reach your viewpoint, (I have) or just swallowed all the right wing driven media character assassination attempts? Also why should it worry you living where you do in your chosen utopia?

Oh and If you think I am rising to the bait you are mistaken.

Re: STEAM ENGINES AND WATERWHEELS

Every garage forecourt used to have a portable Castrol R pump as additive for fuelling two stroke engines. One shot to a tank of 2 star leaded on a Bantam and other marques from memory, similar for all the scooter boys.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

Yes, I think it was there until the new P.0. buildings were built. I can just remember the the wooden buildings and hoardings on that corner before the new build.Come to think of it, it was at the same time as Holy Trinity was being built.

Re: POLITICS CORNER

On a more positive note than talking about the self serving buffoons in politics. I have just completed my ballot entries for the Labour Party Summer Elections for the National Executive Committee (NEC) representatives and those for the North West representatives for the National Policy Forum (NPF)....

Any insult will do for me, they are both from privileged backgrounds but don't behave as such. Par for the course for those that think they are masters of the universe rather than the spoilt brats that they are.

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Looks a lot better, the stone on my frontage rebuild was up cycled from Bethesda Baptist Chapel, built the low range in the front room and fireplace in the back from it as well. I bet none of that internal handiwork is there now.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Interesting Christian, nice to hear from you, it will be good to have another Lidar interpreter on the site. Spiritual home of Carleton, I wonder what era and if you would know my wife Sally (nee Hutchinson), she's a Carleton girl, lived on West Road until I brought her to the metropolis. :smile:

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

Inkwells at Gisburn Road were just the little white ceramic jobs. Desks had a pencil channel along the top above the hinge line. I think last year at Juniors was when cartridge pens became popular. I remember feeling very grown up when I got one of those (Platinum), you could get cartridges with bla...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

My first house, a gable end property on York Street was a former shop and still had the frontage when we bought it in 1975. We got a grant from the council towards the cost of conversion back to a normal front room. Remember helping with the install of the RSJ's before the frontage could be removed ...

School monitor jobs, as well as milk, you could be elected ink as well as nib or blotting paper monitor. Nib monitor was a Monday morning role where you dished out a new nib for each pupil.

Depends as always if anyone else wants it. Try a search on Ebay. The £300 job had three people bidding which helped. It was well worn and had one or two small holes in it as befitted a 34 year old T but all described and accepted by the buyer who was over the moon when he received it, gave very posi...
