Kaga. My brother thinks he remembers Janet but from school rather than Dunlop. He says she lived in Elmsdale Avenue between Starkey's shop and the back entrance to the William IV pub. He thinks she lived next door or one away from Dave Rees who was in his class at Windmill Road school and also went to work at Dunlop. I remember the Litwin family who lived opposite the rear entrance to the William. I worked with Rod Litwin at Dunlop (we are both retired now) and Mick Litwin who I discovered died last month aged 65. There were a few other brothers whose names escape me. My brother also thinks there was a family of Simpsons that lived opposite Janet. Any relation to you. He also thinks that Janet had a brother that he vaguely remembers. Regards Derrick Oldham

Derrick, no the Simpsons in Elmsdale Ave were not related as far as I know, never checked them out. Janet's brother was Barry Blythe.
