I see from your profile that you used to live in the houses in front of the dog track on Woodhouse Lane. I was wondering if you knew my grandmother and grandfather.

They lived at 302a, next door to the chippy.

Me and my brothers and sisters used to play on the dog track when we were kids.

I probably did but I have forgotten their names, Tommy Walford lived next door to them he was a Plumber. I left Woodhouse Lane in 1959

Their names were Annie and Bert Dawber. I remember Tommy Walford, he had a son, I think his name was Brian.

Small world isn't it?

I lived at 284 five doors away from 294 I think the name I remember from 294 was a decorater called Harmer, I may be wrong. Next door was Brian & Shirley Horner.
Sorry I do'nt recall the Lathoms.

Thanks for that rossy. It could well be my grandma. Judging her height, using the gate posts as a guide, she is about the right height, not very tall.
