The little street that went up the side of the empire was a continuation of cotton st.

The restaurant was named the Jal-al-Abad. It was small and cosy but well worth a visit and the food and hospitalty were excellent. We have photos in the family album of us dining there when my grandaughter was a baby (about 1993). It closed as a restaurant a couple of years later but (surprisingly) is still being advertised on the front/top of the main stand at Ashton United's ground. That's at least fifteen years of free advertising.

Just for you Bill...  I remember also the 'grotty bogs' at the 'Birdcage'  'Sal Joss' behind..

Thanks Mike, it must have been the bright lights from inside the Bird Cage that dazzled me.

Also, double blimey - I haven't heard them called the Sal Joss for at least forty years, except in the back of my brain where that's what I still know them as.

For herby, this is a link to the picture Mike mentioned.

You would have thought they would have provided a bigger picnic table.
