Thread Name: Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town?
Subject: RE: Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town?
They had that sort of rig in Master's which was however on Broad Street

Just found out, courtesy of Mum P, that the shop on Regent Road with the same 'rig' was Landes. So, Landes and BHS were the two stores I can remember. The Masters I remember was actualy off Oxford Road - Facing where the Ritz is in Manchester and under a railway arch. They had a pneumatic tube system for their 'cheques'. There could have been a Masters on Broad Street but we don't remember it. There was, however, a Manners on Chapel Street with overhead cables and all - Remembered by Step-dad Frank. We never got as far as Chapel Street because we always turned down Cross Lane before we got there!

Did you used to get the same 'clothing company cheques' as us Paul? Another one of the dirty old town losses I'm glad to say - The 'tick' man!
