It's ok where it is as a separate topic.

The link to the video posted by Northender was in the Ilchester Square - Dock Cottages Thread.

Well i can tell you what one of the familys in that one MissGuided posted are doing..

June Wylde is now retired and living down south, robby wylde is working on the oil rigs earning a mint, and everyone else in the wylde family are working and bringing up familys of their own.. and in 1991 they were in the paper for having one of the biggest familys in the north-west smile

I'm glad to hear that some of them are doing well. They all seemed so bereft of hope. I wonder if it was the spirit of things then - people didn't want to move too far away from their friends and relatives - but today its a fact of life - if you want to get a decent job that can sometimes mean moving hundreds of miles. Most of my family have been like that, although there were one or two who broke away and live elsewhere, which was frowned upon at the time. I don't think it is anything new though, to move away and start life elsewhere. I was surprised to find that most of my relatives had moved from north wales or from near chester to here for jobs.
What these people needed was an 'away day' to motivate them lol just kidding. The guy who said he stayed in bed until 3pm but then went on about needing o-levels made me laugh. If he'd got out of bed earlier he could have gone to Borough Rd and got those o-levels, or at least cse's... omg

I found out my family came from Ireland to Wales then to Birkenhead for work, and the other lot came down from Scotland for the work. But like it said it them vids, all the work was on the docks back then.

And the lad that said about staying in bed till 3 was a friend of the family.. good to know he's still not getting out of bed till 3pm lol
