We used to walk home. We all walked home together. It was a marvellous thing to see on Procter Street because there was Ackroyds, and there was Robinson and Peel's and Scotts, and when the buzzers went at about quarter past five at night, it was just like a swarm of people. Everybody knew everybody from different mills because you were so used to seeing them coming on and going back.
Watching them come out of football now is how people used to come out of factories.
