People (Re-unions, trace old friends and relatives.)
I worked for Ernie Mac in 1961 in the old market hall. Jimmy was my immediate boss and I trained under Jerry Burgess.
I was 16 years old and Mr Mac used to take me to Yorkshire occasionally on a Sunday to visit an old farmer friend of his and I used to go fishing in the River Wharfe nearby.
What a life back then...sorry to hear about Jimmy being in poor health.
As regards to the slaughterhouse in Scholes, I had a cine camera and still have some cine film of the slaughterhouse, in colour. I remember getting lamb fries from the slaughter men and thoroughly enjoyed eating them.
