Sidney St

Hi David
I was born March 1950 name Marilyn Mangnall and lived firstly on Sydney St with my mother and grandparents, mother Gladys Mangnall (nee Milner), father James was a guardsman in the Coldstreams. Grandparents William and Annie Milner. I believe my grandparents were both actors as I once saw a photo in Looking Back that had been submitted by Howard Gaskell (Canada) and they were both named as part of the cast sometime in the 1920's. Howard Gaskell was my mother's cousin I think. We then moved to 42 Holden St., neighbours were Frank and Brenda Rothwell, children of Annie and Frank Rothwell. I Think Frank junior emigrated. The other side were the Princes, Norman and Carol, Norman became the singer in the Houghton Weavers and Carol a school teacher. If I am correct they both went to the Catholic school. I remember going to Swan Lane Nursery before school. Awful place where we had to go to sleep on camp beds every afternoon. I stayed at the nursery and was taken to St Marks school by bus. We moved to Westhoughton around 1958 so I wouldn't have been there long but I remember the school and the dinner rooms. My mother had a sister Joyce m Leonard Hart and two brothers William moved to Birmingham area and James m Jean Timms. My mother lives with me and will be 88 next birthday, only one brother still alive (Billy). I don't know if anyone from the area will remember them but I have recognised a lot of names on the wedding lists of friends who I have heard my mother talk about. I also remember a family called Bond who may have lived in Grecian St area and Tattersalls.
A family used to mind me after school who lived on Sydney St during the time that one side was being compulsory purchased and the occupants re-housed. I can't remember the name of this family. I also had relations on Hobson St - Holdens and an Aunty Florrie maiden name would have been Vickers m Joe Fisher, both deceased.
Anyone out there remember anything?

1871 September 11th The second annual celery show, open to all England, was held at the house of Mr Joseph Haslam, General Havelock, Sidney St on Saturday, when there were exhibited some fine samples of celery, reflecting credit on the growers. There were two classes exhibited, red and white, all dressed for table use; 66 sticks were staged for competition. After the judges had made their awards, the room was thrown open for visitors, and was very soon crowded. The judges remarked that it was the best table of celery they had seen for years past; many sticks were highly commended.
