Between The Sticks

On 9 February 2015, BBC journalist Stuart Flinders was in Church Street Liverpool with a camera crew, interviewing elderly passers-by, asking if they remembered the 1966-67 FA Cup Fifth Round clash between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park…

Bert Trautmann’s predecessor between the sticks was the legendary Frank Swift.

Goalies

When Manchester City’s legendary goalkeeper Frank Swift retired in September 1949, his replacement would become another legend between the sticks. In November 1949, City signed goalkeeper Bert Trautmann from the Liverpool County Combination League side St Helens Town.

One of the last locos to use Stockport Edgeley engine shed prior to its closure to steam in 1968.

Steam

On the evening of Saturday 3 August 1968, people arriving at Preston station to catch the 20.48 to Blackpool North or the 21.25 to Liverpool Exchange, must have wondered just what was going on…

Hall of Fame – Mike Yarwood

As a lifelong mimic, Stockport entertainer Mike Yarwood did a pretty good impression of being a professional footballer. So good, in fact, that he almost pursued a career in the game instead of going into showbusiness and becoming one of the biggest stars of British TV in the 1960s and 70s.

Perry first started playing tennis on public courts near his family home. His exceptional speed at table tennis served him well as he progressed through the amateur tennis ranks. His 1936 Wimbledon triumph against German Baron Gottfried von Cramm was the quickest men’s final in the 20th century and the second fastest of all time!

Gorton Monastery

Welcome to Then and Now, where each week we compare images of Manchester streets, landmarks and buildings from bygone days with how they look now.

Our main image, dating from 1915, shows the imposing Church and Friary of St Francis, known locally as Gorton Monastery. The photograph was taken from Gorton Lane.

The Gothic frontage of the church soars above the two-storey Victorian terraced homes and shops. It still dominates the skyline today.
