So many memories
28 September 2014 | by ross-wayne-119-654939See all my reviews

This is a important film for me personally as it some scenes are in my neighbors garden and one scene shows me in my pram and a real trip down memory lane because i have walked up and down the streets as a kid and recognize so much,went to see it on large screen at the Salford film festival and far better.a fantastic social history film featuring the fields next to the Manchester ship canal and a glimpse of st Cathrine's church where i was christened and is no longer there along with the Barton power station chimneys. So glad my dad told me about this film its a walk back in time for me and all residents of Barton showing how its changed.
