Family In Spring Lane
It was our last walk along Spring Lane before setting off for Blackpool the next morning. Grandma, the Aunts and Miss Carter (who wore Pink) called for us and as they walked along talking about all the little things they had to do before the cabs came the next morning. Willie and Annie Murgatroyd came running up to George and I, Annie saying that they would see us at the station the next morning as they were going to their Auntie’s at Blackpool. “What’s the matter with Willie”, said Grandma. “He’s got the mumps” shouted Annie. “Oh dear me”, said Mother, “that’s the last straw. Children, put your hankies to your noses”. “I’ve never had the mumps”, said Miss Carter, “and look, Mr. Taylor (the Bank Manager) is coming. Let us all turn back quickly”, and the year was 1908.
