The Tales We Tell – Growin Up in’t North – Julie Kelly

Woodbines, Arrowbars, Double Diamond, spangles & sarsaparilla – Bringing back any memories yet?

Jam butties for your dinner, and if you dropped it on the floor, you’d just brush it off and eat it.

Growing up in the 50s & 60s Northern backstreet towns of Manchester were hard – but there were good memories too.

Here are a few memories but please share yours….

When folk smoked Woodbines, Camel & Park Drive and cashed in Green Shield Stamps.

The only sanitizer was your mum spitting on her handkerchief to wipe your hands and face?

Summers were hot & winters freezing. And you went out playing in the morning and came back at tea time black as the ace of spades.

When we all shared the same bath water and a single bar of soap washed everyone.
