Use to walk those very same streets back in the late 50’s and 60’ when I was a kid . Parramatta was the place that mum would take us 6 kiddies if there were clothes to be bought and bills to be paid .
The tallest building back then was the White Horse hotel ( which my old man promised to take me to when I had whiskers growing on my face , but not at 8 )
Recall standing outside Murray Brothers on the cnr. of Macquarie and Church streets when somebody told me that President Kennedy had just been assassinated .
Of course me and my mates would often go to Cumberland Oval to watch the likes of Ronnie Lynch , the Thornett brothers and big bad Bob O’Reily go round the park .
But thank goodness I was turned away from the dark side and followed the mighty Dragons from the mid 60’ to now. Oh how I wish those days were back .
Great post and thanks for sharing.
I have so many memories of my days back then that I could fill up 2 pages of this thread.
I might just do it one day!!
