Take a trip back to the 60's when headscarves and raincoats were the height of fashion, Salford still had a thriving market and the Ford Anglia was king.

History With Flynn


Salford's very own historical time lord Tony Flynn, takes us back in time to Cross Lane in the Sixties. A time when headscarves were all the rage, cross lane could fit 6 rows of cars on it and the unforgettable smell of Westlers hot dogs and burgers drifted around the market.

This article first appeared on SalfordOnline as part of its Salford in the Sixties series of video articles. It is lovingly reposted here with the permission of Hot Dog salesmen of the year 1967, Tony Flynn.
