The year I would think is in the mid 60s just before the blitzkreig on Scholes. I can see Platt Lane with some houses missing, part St Catharine's recreation ground with Caunce Road running down from Caunce St. Kendrick St is there with the sand hole at the top end. Golborne St where I used to live, Stanley St with St Catharine's Mission at the Platt Lane end are all still there. Played many times on the rec and at the top of Golborne St/Stanley St.
