This photo appeared on Tuesday 6th December in the Express & Stars MEMORY LANE – by Toby Neal. Obviously like the many young employees at the Star these days who haven’t the time to spend researching the history of these photo’s, Toby hadn’t realised the significance of this scene the caption reads: ‘Uh-oh, there’s trouble – people are milling around in the street with just a lone policeman with his bicycle in view, attempting to restore calm.’
The picture dates from around the mid to late 1960′s, because Victoria Wines has a sign outside celebrating its 1865-1965 centenary.
Trouble I’ll say there was!

A somewhat grainy photograph, but one can still ID Ces Evans, before he was T boned on Linthouse Lane, ending his motorcycling days. And yes those machines had kick starts!
