    Woolworths

    Hi Sha. No I'm not gathering material for a book. Just reminiscing about the Warrington I remember as I've been away a long time. Trying to piece together the bits and pieces I do remember with help from other people. What question did I not answer btw?

    Thanks for clarifying that Evil Sid. You are right about the alley next to the church leading to the back entrance steps of Woolworths. I can't remember any co-op in town as it is too long ago but I'm sure there must have been one. I remember the one on Kingsway near where we lived and the metal containers they used to send off on wires which were strung all across the store from the checkouts to a place at the back and come back with the change an receipts. That co-op is still there although changed a bit. . Used to be a co-op butcher next door to it but that is gone.

    I find it all a bit confusing as there seem to have been several changes over the years since I was there in 1966. At that time there were still steps at the back of Woolworths leading to a back entrance which we used to use a lot. I don't remember a cafe but perhaps that is just my bad memory. Only remember the counter where I used to buy the yummy cheese and tomato rolls. They were always so fresh and I can almost taste them now. I'm sure the co-op wasn't there in those days.

    Not sure if I remember a cafe but I do remember the counter where they sold sandwiches and rolls. I used to love the cheese and tomato rolls. The best ever. What years was the cafe there Harry?

    Yummy's chips.

    Hi Mayhem. I was only 16 when I went there. I guess the woman was over 40. There is no doubt chips tasted better out of newspaper. I'm sure many would agree with us. I have heard that sentiment expressed before.

    Yummy's chips.

    Hi Mayhem. It was the 60's when I used to go to Yummy's and they didn't seem all that elderly then. Was the woman fat? It's amazing how you remember all those details. All I remember is the chips. You could see them all piled up and pre-cooked and they would chuck them in the fat and fry them again. Lovely and greasy, yummy in fact.

    I do remember going in the back way up some steps. We went in that way more often than not I think.

    Thank you Evil Sid. All Woolworths photos welcome. Wish I could find some interior ones as well. I don't know if the layout had changed in later years but I have been trying to explain the old layout to my children. Wish I could show them.

    I may have asked this before but does anyone have a photo of Woolworths in Sankey Street?

    Still hoping someone might come up with old photos of Viccy park from the 50's and 60's maybe.

    I have looked at Warrington High School Photos Facebook page but there are no photos of the building.
