Many kids from Coe St attended St Marks school. I remember the Liles family from number 70 our next door neighbours, I lived at 72a.
We lived in back to back houses and we had to walk all around the block to go to the toilet. A few went in the recess that was in front of the mill gate. The toilet was just a piece of rough wood with a hole in it , it stunk and you did your business to a chorus of those old flies called bluebottles. I was friends with the Bates family and opposite us a bit to the right were the Katowskis a polish family who fed me with pickled herring and sauerkraut, I loved it. I remember the Morris Ladies, one of them was called Mary and bedridden and her mother had bronchitis. They were very kind . We didn't have a telly and they let us watch children's hour on the BBC about 3 times a week. Some times they made me and my brother Trevor egg and chips so we stayed long enough to watch the Liberace show as well.

The 1924 and 1926 photos have my Mum (Winifred Feeney) on both, on the 1924 she is the little girl on the front row sitting next to the tallish blond boy, she looks to have black wellies on, they are socks and shoes.
On the 1926 photo she is the girl wearing the ribbon. Mum can't remember whether she lived at 27 or 29, I think it is 27 as she went on to marry James Lythgoe after my Father died, who's family are listed at no 25, there was 6 girls, Jim being the only boy, and they often talked about living next door to each other.

Some residents were relocated to many diverse places never to meet again. I knew some kids that I used play with, who simply disappeared overnight. I loved living in Coe St .

Excerpt from the Bolton News
December 9, 1905
John Riley, 46 Coe St., evidently had some trouble at his house last night, for, according to the account he gave, at a quarter to twelve his wife hit him on the eye with a basin. P.C. Carter found him in Bridgeman St. bleeding from a wound over the eye.
