Adam St

Jean Stevenson,

Not much survives of Adam St which is located off Lever St by the back and side of the Irish Club, but at least it's still on the map and the street sign is intact if not looking a little weathered.

When I was adjusting the map I noticed the word Lav at the back of the shelter, I'm sure there was a toilet for the bus stop there in the 1960s, us lads didn't use toilets much, we had lots of gable ends and back streets.

Can anyone else remember a toilet at the crossing of Lever St and Nelson St ?

Hi David
Just read the update on Adam Street, I remember the Lav. on the corner of Nelson Street and Lever Street, scared the hell out me when I came home late from Manchester with my Dad, got off the bus from the old station in front of Trinity Street church, and we would walk home to Bull Lane (sometimes with some fish 'n chips) and usually I had to go for a pee, and my Dad would take me there, also sometimes we would catch a bus there also, But what was worst was the smell from diagonally across the street, there was a storage shed were they stored cow hides. During the day wasn't too bad but late at night wow what a stench!! I had a friend who lived next to it, his house was just next to the bridge going from Lever Street to Manchester Road. He always said the smell didn't bother him!!

On the corner of Lever St-Thynne St was The Cotton Tree Pub and the one on the corner of Lever St-Nelson St next to the shelter was The Tanners then later the Farmers Arms.
