Amazing, black and white kids playing out together, who would have thought It! Brilliant photograph. I hope all those in it are all still fit and well!πŸ‘

I remember the streets being like this in the 60s ,wouldn't swop my childhood

My father was born and lived on Meadow Street Moss Side

They only go out to smash bus shelters now !

That’s how streets used to be all over in the 50s and 60s. Brilliant!!
