Subject: RE: Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town?
:D That De La Salle upbringing again, eh Paul? Joys of Middle class-dom. Still -must have done you good coz you know more about picts that me:-)

Aye - Being 'bridged indeed. Again, we didn't get down as far as Trafford bridge because we turned off Broad Street to go down Cross Lane and then off Cross Lane to do Regent Road. Funny thing is I am currently working a stones throw from Trafford Bridge! They have built another bridge at the side of it which I am sure is a fixed structure so I don't thing Trafford Bridge will ever turn again.

I don't remember this either but my friend Dave E. reckons his grandad used to make money putting ashes and cinders down on the frozen cobbles near the cattle market so the horses wouldn't slip.

And who'd think we'd all be here today drinking Chateau de Chatelet...

:D
