Sutcliffe appeared on a number of TV programmes including Softly, Softly, Marked Personal, General Hospital and Z Cars.
November 1st, 1966:
The Kardomah coffee shop chain was an integral part of the British high street from the Edwardian era. There were at least three outlets in Manchester.
Pictured is the popular Market Street café. There were others in Albert Square in the 1950s and St Ann’s Square.
In 1962, the chain was sold to the Forte Group. Though Kardomahs became popular with Mods in the 1960s, the brand lost its appeal and branches began closing into the 1970s.
