  I like the old fellas leaning on the railings. Just chewing the cud and watching the world go by.

You just don't see the crowds like that these days. I had forgotten about the railings around that area...so much more interesting to go 'up town' in those days. The crowds were so deep on the pavements you were in danger of bumping into one another... No danger of that now. I wonder if that saying ' I bumped into what's her name' today comes from those days!

The UCP - I could murder a big lump of seam tripe and a couple of steak and cowheel pies

Nice pic of times long gone.However,the thought of tripe and cowheel, YUK.

The pies are making my mouth water - but not the tripe! I had to go for Honeycomb tripe for my dad - he was the only one who ate it at our house!

Waiting for the Standish bus and standing in Jackson's doorway 'courting'.
