This video brings back memories......
Good to see the old Bull Ring but I still think the new one is better.

Hydroplane racing on salford park reservoir, at the age of seven I could actually have been in that crowd.
I watched a lot of racing there.

Witton isolation hospital

Witton isolation hospital being burnt down in 1967, I must admit I had never heard of it.
It was located at the junction of College road and Hawthorn road.
