    My local was the Penn Cinema on Warstones Road. My early memories are somewhat vague regarding the first film I saw, but the Saturday matinee was the time all the kids off the estate caused their usual weekly chaos, much to the annoyance of the usherettes! I do have memories of the westerns with Tex Ritter, Gene Autry, and of course, Roy Rogers and Trigger. There was also the gangster film serials with “The Black Hand Gang” or something along those lines, along with the Disney classics such as Snow White, Pinocchio, etc.

    It was pennies to get in but, if you’d spent your cinema money on “suck”, there was always someone ready to open the side door for a couple of acid drops!

    I remember living at 134 Bellot Street some time after the war between 1947-1952. I was born on Manchester Road, Lower Ince Wigan in 1944. We lived at 134 Bellot Street, which is no longer shown on Google maps. I went to Waterloo Road Junior or Infants School. I vaguely remember having to get a school bus to go for our school dinners. I had double Pneumonia and was in hospital when I was about 5 years old, I presumed I went in Salford Royal. My step father worked at the biscuit factory in Crumpsall. I used to go to a shop at the back of our house for my mum I think it was called Weeners. I also remember a chinese shop which had a clock in the window with a sign saying ‘no tick’. I would be grateful for any information available

    The Swiss Cottage on Churchgate.
    Mum used to take me and the big sister in there on the way back from town a fair amount. Used to love it in there with all the old copper and the smell was amazing
