I used to go into Oliveries occasionally, but that was located on the corner opposite Hamilton Square Station. There was a cafe next to the bus Inspector's Office (Blakey ?) at Woodside. I think that was called The Avoca Cafe. Huge mugs of tea and "tramstopper" sandwiches. Oh yes - proper buses that were clean and ran to time as well!

Happy days eh?

More good pics from Pablo...bring back some memories of happy times from my does this one.

Oliveries? Not sure if I have spelled it correctly. When my brother and I were little lads and if our dad had had a win on the horses, he used to take us to the pictures down in Birkenhead on Saturday afternoons. Afterwards he would treat us to an ice-cream soda in the cafe. He would put a three penny bit in the jukebox and his favorite singer was always the American bandleader, Vaughan Monroe.

Most people alive today will have never heard of him, but a few years ago my wife and I were watching the end of one of those Bruce Willis action films and the singer of the song that was playing out the credits I immediately identified as Monroe.

No way would she have it that I was able to identify his voice because of my dad being a fan of his back in the fifties. She accused me of having seen the picture previously and clocked the name of the singer in the credits as they roll. But it was true. Lol!

In those days there were no betting shops, so my dad used to put his bets on with the bookies runners. There was a man called Joe O'laughlin who used to hang out around the Trunk in Duke Street. Then there was Tommy Lacy who lived in the avenues opposite Gallagher's Hill. I often remember my dad writing his bet out and folding his wager neatly in the wrapped paper it was written on. I'd run up to Tommy's house and put the bet through his door. Happy days! I wish I could live them again just to have my dad back. Even though we had SFA.

Bob Martins? Yep, remember it well. Us lads used to call in there for a pint of blood-tonic. What on earth was in it I wouldn't know, but we kidded ourselves up that we were like men drinking in the Pub.
