Re: LIGHTWEIGHT REFERENCE BOOK

Why stop at 387? They went up to 830 and beyond.
and if he had tripled the cost to match triple the content would it still be commercially viable ? Maybe he will do further volumes ? Not my cup of tea but it looks like a quality publication

Re: Burnley 2nd (Special Order)

Rosehill House ? Rose and Crown on the A682 Manchester Road is ,I think, the only one within walking distance probably be okay in there to be fair ..better pubs are out on the outskirts but Rosehill isn't a bad area

Re: recent ebay joblot purchases

Any pics of the blue one?
Or maybe I should have checked Peter Upton's site first before asking this?
He hasn't got a photo because

1) He wasn't a kid in 1970's Burnley
2) He doesn't respond to emails

Re: Burnley 2nd (Special Order)

Yes ..but there are two versions of the blue kit too .. Sky shorts and socks bases Blue outers Sky inners ..White shorts Claret socks Blue outers White inners .. You'll never collect everything because none of us will ever know the full extent of what was available in batches of 50 in every 1970s town
