Janice remembers

Happy New Year to all.
Can anybody remember Castlebar station and the little old ticket office.  But before you got there , there was a sweet shop I believe it was run by Fairclough and on Sunday m ornings he used to pack the van full of sweets and tour around the area beeping the horn and all the kids would come out and buy the sweets before dinner.  Also I can remember they had a fish seller who would come during the week and ,as a family,we would always buy a pint of prawns and a pint of winkles.  We would then have a great big bodkin and then hook the winkles out of the shells and have a slice of bread and butter with them.  He had a big wooden  wheelbarrow and, also the milkman would come round with the horse and cart and our mum would go out behind him and collect the horses mess to put on the garden.  I also remember the rag and bone man coming down Harp Road  with his horse and cart, and at the time you couldnt understand what he was calling out
Just a few memories.
