Archive Photography by Carol (Member 10040863) on 13-Aug-2001
100's of original Merseyside photos, taken mainly between 1945 and 1965. Something for everyone: street scenes, factories, shops, shipping on the Mersey, and much more.
Take a look at http://www.20thcenturyimages.co.uk and let me know if there are any areas you'd like to see.

Do You Know BRIAN CAIN by Djinn (Member 10033090) on 16-May-2001
The reason I'm asking this is because everywhere I go people say where do you come from , so I say "Haydock", "Oh do you know Brian Cain", is usually the next thing they say. So do you know him, if so let me know your stories or if, like me people ask you the same bloody question. One chap said "You must know him, He's a Big Bastard, with a bald head and a beard, he looks a bit like a cave man". S... more >>

    Me again, where abouts are you in Canada?
    I live in London Ontario, been here since 1974.
    Everyone should put in a bit about where they are now, just to see how far the 'Yickers' have spread out.
    Just an idea, what do you think?

    G'day from Australia. I was born and bred a Yicker and have lived near Sydney for the past 9 years. I have fond memories of attending the Colliery School that is now described as a "shed" elsewhere on this site!

  • Re: hi all by barry cardwell (Member 10089706) on 2-Aug-2003
    I lived in Vista Road for twenty odd years .I have lost track of the times I used to pop my head out of the door to get the time from the clock on the Labour Club .It was twenty past one for fifteen years at least .In those days Haydock was a real place with pits and miners and lots of scruffy kids .It just isn't the same anymore .
