    My grandad worked in the engine shed at Manningham Station up to the day it closed, transferred to Low Moor for the last couple of years of his working life. Working there he got to move trains about such as the Evening Star & Morning Star.

    Shame they demolished them if my memory serves me well they were immaculate all the brass fittings highly polished even the attendants in those days took great pride in keeping their toilets cleaner than others scattered around the City, as you say idea job for Fordy, I think he'd have still been in his dad's sack when the " Crystal Palce"was in its prime.

    Love the Bobby in his white box directing traffic (bottom left). I doubt if they are even trained how to do that anymore.
    It was an art form in itself.

    Dave, is that top picture the old pavilion at the cricket ground?
    In my first year at Bradford Uni (80/81) there was a student disco at the 'Cricket Club' (ie the upstairs big room in the pavilion) most nights.
    In my 2nd - 4th years I lived in a student house - 79 Cecil Avenue - just up the road from the cricket ground and the decaying remains of BPA football ground.

    The top picture was the changing facilities if I remember correctly continuing on to the football side of the stand and the other side was the cricket ground stand.
    Not a big cricket fan but vaguely remember going to a Sunday game against Somerset who had both Viv Richards and Beefy playing for them on a beautiful summers day packed Park Avenue, I those days you could have a beer needles to say we had a few hence my vaguely comment.
