To Brian and Michelle. Thanks guys for your investigative knowledge on the bricks. Michelle is brilliant at knowing here bricks.
Off to Freeport for a pair of Michelles gloves (they are so kool 8) )
Good day eh guys, boats, bricks, teas, bikkies for dunking, fags, sweets and windmills. :?



Carn't wait for Michelle LMW brick lady's report.

Phil have sent off your photo of tram to Terry Regan (he thinks he knows where it is) who would like to meet up with you all sometime (he thinks you are doing sterling work)

Shirley,

Yes...thanks for another excellent day! (Will be writing and posting a blog about it soon.) And thanks to Ann and Bruce as well for the coffee and bickies and the entertaining stories. (I won't be telling the one about the crotchless panties to my mum though.) Oh...and cheers to Phil as well for giving us a lift. It was all good fun as always.

This Photo of a Tram and Bowling Green is Blackpool but where ?


I'd say that's in Bispham. The tram is leaving the old tram sheds, which became Alpic supermarket and is now Sainsbury's. The building end that can be seen on the left of the picture is Bispham Conservative Club.

Chris,

That makes sense, except there's no Hesketh Avenue or Highlands pub in the background? Unless it was taken before they were built, of course.

Shirly,
Glad you liked the photos, no problem for you to use them.
My neighbour across the road who died last year at ninty four, was the niece of Cornelius Bagot, and told me many stories of him, the mill, how he gave her away at her wedding, and how he was killed on the road outside his house on Whitegate Drive. Although she said he was 'well off', and gave the mill to Blackpool, she never mentioned about him being boss of Catterall and Swarbrick. C & S ales, or 'come and suffer' as we irreverently called it in our youth.

Re the Tram photo i asked for info a few days ago.
By email.
"It is Fleetwood Rack 139 (demoted to a works car) towing the old boiler from the former Fleetwood Tramroad power station at Bispham depot, down to Blackpool. The date is 12 May 1925.
Regards Tram expert.
Thanks for that Phil

Frank the photos are first class thank you.

Chris was right then. (And, of course, the reason why Hesketh Avenue and the Highlands aren't in the background is because the photograph's looking east, not west. I got confused about the direction the tracks were running when Chris suggested it.)

Five stars and a cookie that man.
