MY GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDFATHER, SAMMY AND SADIE LOWRY LIVED IN NO.5.
MY FATHER WAS BOBBY LOWRY.
YES I REMEMBER THE MCCORMICKS SHOP GETTING A PENNY MIX OUT OF IT AND FINLAYS COAL SHOP ON THE BEND IN PEVERIL ST.
AND REF THE GLENDINNINGS, THE MOST VIVID MEMORY IS ME AND MY COUSIN LARRY MCCALL PUTTING YOUNG DAVID GLENDINNING IN A JCB TYRE AND ROLLING HIM FROM THE TOP OF THE STREET.
IT WOULD'NT BE SO BAD, BUT HE WAS ONLY OUT OF HOSPITAL AFTER GETTING THE HOLE IN HIS HEART REPAIRED.
THERE WAS BLUE MURDER THAT DAY. LOL :idiot2:

My Grandad had a cousin in Peveril Street, the old girl's name was Maud Maltman. Apparently she was an eccentric old spinster, and kept a confectionery shop. I believe her place is now an Indian restaurant. Any reminiscences or snippets of info would be welcome.

Ref granny england, i found an old photo of her holding my father Bobby Lowry when he was about 4yrs old.
That would put it about 1940.
Strange to think she used to do the same with me in the 1960.s.
After she died her son Rossie England and his wife Fran i think moved in.
After that Billy Moore snr mved in and ran fruit business round the markets from there with his son Billy Moore jnr and my father working for him.
My father was the only one that had a driving licence cos the other two had lost theres for life. lol :D

 My grandfather and grandmother Best lived at this house.  I remember visiting them in the early sixties although I was rather young.  My father George was their son.  Unfortunately dad died in 1979.. Reply back to me if you are looking any more info.
