I first started work for my father in the mid 1970's as a Saturday Boy. This was in Dads Regent Road shop, in Salford. Back when Regent Road was a proper, old fashioned high street. Dad taught me how to repair Sewtric foot controls.
When I left school I joined Dad who by then had moved to a shop on Deansgate, in Manchester. I began my training proper down in cellar, which was our workshop, along with mechanics, Tony, Paul, Fred and Vincent. My brother, Steve, joined the firm a few years later.
My short stories are memories of various customers I've met along the way. Alan Bamber
