Hello, I was born in Hawkins Street in April 1931,from the front bedroom of our house we could see the hooter blow and could see the steam come out before we could hear it. I lived there until I married and moved away,I now live near Grimsby. Through your site I have read many names which bring back many memories. I have the familiar photo of the kids of Hawkins st: and am sure I could name most of them, somewhere I have a couple of others I must look for. As for memories, mannington rec:the river ray, across the fields to Shaw, train spotting up the milk bank, making and racing bogies,life was never dull for us kids. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reminisce about times past, I will try and write again.
