I've remembered the name of the cup competition (can't remember what I did yesterday mind) which was the Weaver to Wearer cup. So I googled it and came up with this piece http://www.authorsden.com/visit/viewsho ... orID=40278

Weaver to Wearer were a popular tailors in King Street in the 60s. Used to go there or Burtons for our suits, usually would buy at least two a year paying for them weekly.

Thanks for the pictures guys, I went to Barnes Road too, passed my eleven plus from there, and played football in the back lanes with Kellan and Pooter as well as Brian Hunter, Malc Newman (partnered to one of my wife's cousins now), Trevor Auty, and Ray Malcolm lived upstairs above me.

I can just remember the winter of 47. We had gone to my cousin Nancy's wedding. The reception was in the Nook Winter Garden ( a much more refined place in those days) When we came out it had started to snow and my dad had to carry me.
I can remember my school age cousins getting exotic stuff from Canada like tinned apple juice. We had relatives in Canada and America who sent us parcels of clothes, food and comics for me.
It's hard to describe how bad things were after the war with food and coal rationed. Most people don't realise rationing went on until the mid fifties. Four ounces of sweets a week...no fat kids then.

Yes my cousins were from a single parent family which was quite uncommon then. They were classed as poor and got all the stuff through the school. We got stuff from my dad's aunts and uncles who had emigrated after the first war.
We lived in South Eldon Street opposite St Mary's church. The Auty family lived just along from me but Trevor was a lot younger.
Did you ever play on 'the Ash' I can vaguely remember a travelling fair used to turn up there.
