    Hello no spoons for me again today. Not all bad though. What do you think? The blades on these scissors are about 3 inches long. We see the "I.XL" mark clearly. On the the other side of the blade pivot area is a less clear mark that I believe says that the scissors are chromium plated.I supose dating the scissors is difficult, but they may well be from the same period as "SteveHB's" Kelly directories ad.

    Hi Arif, That's a lovely picture of the park. It's taken from the path which leads from the entrance at the side of Gleadless Church, the opposite side of Ridgeway Road to the Graves Trust Houses and shops. It's interesting that you mention that Mr Spur was killed on Hollisend Rd. I heard that he was killed in a car crash around 1964. Cheers, Wazzie Worrall

    Hi Paul, as far as I remember I think Mr Spur was knocked down and killed by a car on Hollinsend Road. By the way, the park was brilliant!
